    The Journey game was off the chain.
    I remember this game being so popular that
    I never got to play it. I didn't get to the arcade
    very often, mom didn't allow arcade time.
    The arcade was where kids got into "trouble"
    according to her. She was right, that's where all
    the town derelicts and delinquents hung out.
    But who cares, I was gonna get my Ms. Pac Man
    fix regardless.



    Who remembers Baby Pac Man?
    1/2 Pinball-1/2 Video Game
    That shit was the shit!

  • many homework hours spent on that one there.

    in '88 i had this one handled in one quarter, holmes.

    sweet ass Uzi action, thumb grenades, shit was tight-tanium.

    soft and smooth Atari graphics and sound kinda like Paperboy had, remember?

    OOoold school shooter that you had to have the eyes of a damn condor to hit the micro-targets on.

    PAC-MAN was cool but when all the patterns became public/common knowledge it wasnt the same.






    Stratovox - 1980.

    Defender upped the button ante.

    Tempest was a return to minimalism.

    what was the deal with this game, anyways? weren't you just supposed to move the joystick in certain directions on each screen to get to the next or something weird like that? that shit cost like a dollar to play when it came out.

  • I totaly forgot about this game, maaaan I wasted a ton of money on this one.

    Digging thru my MAME roms now to see if I have it.





  • And Gauntlet was great if you had all your boys with you:




    "Get the food! I'll cover you! Go! Go!" That's all you would hear around that game.
