Marble Madness 2: Marble Man

Recommended Posts

Bouncer from Entertainment Sciences is a pretty sad example of what was probably a ground breaking game going extinct because of financial problems rather than issues with the game, it tested good wherever they showed it and I bet would have been a huge hit if it was released, it's just that because of the hardware needed each unit was going to cost in excess of $4,000 when most games were going for around $2,000.

Do bother enduring that movie, here's a promotional video:

 

 

I really hope I'm wrong, but I get the impression that game is gone for good :( , at least one guy has been doing pretty in depth research on it and has even spoken with former employees but still hasn't so much as found the ROMs, he has a webpage about it at www.turbosub.com

Snoopy Pong is just regular ol' pong in a Snoopy doghouse cabinet. The version sans Snoopy but kept the doghouse cab is Puppy Pong.

I believe the source code for Gremlins exists in some form (at least some of it), but the prototype is long gone.

That's what I've heard too, but it's only part of it and really isn't useful for anything.
