“Extinct” machines

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity, are there machines out there that are lost to time?  That is we know they existed with photographic proof, but nobody knows of one that’s still in existence.

The Bouncer, I don't think anyone has ever found one even though it was location tested and appeared in the background of a movie.  I'd love to be proven wrong, though.

Earth Friend Mission and F-14 Tomcat. Both are vector graphic flight simulator styled games.

I thought there was an early Atari arcade game that no one had access to ...  I remember reading something like that recently.

Bouncer is the holiest of holy grails as far as lost games, sadly I'm getting the impression it's gone for good :(

 

A few others:

 

- Spellsinger

- Gremlins

- Williams Devastators 

- Vertigo

F-14 Tomcat would later be the name of an amazing pinball game. I have it in the game room of my comic shop.

There was a Doom II arcade machine in a 90s movie. Very sure it was a 1 of 1 custom made prop (though the game on the screen moved, so it was either playing a movie or maybe there was a PC in the cab), but in any case, I doubt its survived.

Polybius - is it really an urban legend?

 

:tinfoil:

As far as I know. Yeh.

 

There've been modern day stories and a PC "remake" or "simulation" or two.
