Identify This Arcade Game

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out what this is. These picture came from a friend of my sister and she describes it as "Pong". I doesn't currently work so they only get that test pattern screen, but this at least show's it's a color game so probably early 80's. In the picture of the screen you can see the company name "Rover Leisure Products Co" in Siloam Springs Ark, but Googling that name turns up nothing. Anyone have any ideas?

It is not Flim Flam for sure. Is there any other info. that you can provide? Open it up see if there are any names in there. Rover Leisure Products Co. is not listed anywhere on KLOV or on arcade history.com

Well, I wouldn't say nothing, I'd say there's two mentions of the company at NewspaperArchive.com for June 24, 1977 and June 25, 1977 in the Northwest Arkanasas Times.

Looks like a classified, but I can't tell more without registering.

I agree with Mxyzptlk i think you are going to have to open it and look for board numbers or any other form of id,taking a pic of the board would help too.

Man, there were sooooo many of these cocktail Pong clones back in the day it will be tough. PCB's usually have some kind of info but not always (especially if it was a pirate/etc..) Check the coin door insides for stickers, any inspection tags/etc internally. Even the very bottom of the cabinet might have something, but none of this will help if some other board was popped in it. How does the wiring look (hacked up? Original?) good luck :)

Hey @Dan Boris,  I know this is 8 years old but I was revisiting my few old posts on AtariAge. Blast from the past! And sorry for the necropost.

 

Just the other day FlyerFever posted a Rover Leisure Products flyer for "Roverball", a clone/bootleg of Exidy's TV Pinball.

They also appear to have made a clone/bootleg of Mirco's "21".

Some kind soul also shared your 2012 post on KLOV Forums back in 2012, but it was never linked in this thread:

https://forums.arcade-museum.com/threads/does-anyone-recognize-this-game.240286/

It's still anyone's guess which Pong-type game they cloned. Here's hoping Dan @ FlyerFever has the flyer for a coming update, this guy "gregf" thinks he has yet another recent flyer acquisition of a Rover Leisure Products game still to upload: https://www.mameworld.info/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php?Cat=&Number=387760
