Mr. DO! (1982 Universal)
the first (and best) of the serie, played A LOT during my youth, from '84 until '86
pratically is Dig Dug added with a shooting ball Smile
an evergreen imo, also with his hypnotic Moulin Rouge can-can style tune

That's why I love playing MAME emulator. It reminds me of the good old days blowing my quarters left and right. My mom used to keep a jewelry box full of quarters so she could do laundry and I would occasionally borrow one or two to play the arcade games in a bar next to our apartment.

Wow yeah I remember Mr. Do! as if it was yesterday, oh I really miss the 80s man, last time i played that game I was goofing around moving on areas collecting all sort of items and being chased by freaking enemies while you shoot or crush emm with heavy objects and stuff, boy it was a blast! I get your point man sometimes people confuses this game with Dig Dug or even with Boulderdash cuz they were very similar to Mr. Do! Actually with those games i remember the player's movement had to be more like "methodical"? than in a Mr. Do type game, I might be wrong but that's how I remember, its been a long time to be honest.
Also Mr. Do! Has lots of variants too, the first one that came through my mind is Digger for Amiga or DOS i think and some I never knew by searching online were Mr Dig, Mr Ee & Mr Wiz among others. Great times Icon_thumbup

lol that never happened to me but I can picture it all, it must have felt good wasting all those quarters just to go at the arcade and have some fun, in my case my dad was an arcade freak so he let me play a lot when we went out on weekends, problem was we were fully competitive and we both ended up "fighting" each other but at the end of the day we had a neat time, now that i think about it my folk was a great guy but now he's all grumpy all the time lol  Swad times change and people do too
I've done questionable things.

I remember there was this bowling place that had some arcade machines from the 90s. Used to play Crazy Taxi and Mortal Kombat in there a lot.

Old-timer here. This was our arcade fix back in the 60s and 70s.
The baseball ones were awesome, and you usually ran into machines like these in pizza joints, billiard halls and stuff.
Surprised this one doesn't have cigarette burns on the button panel.  People chugged like mad back then.

^^ lol
i like real pinball machines, but never reached to have a remarkable performance as i would Smile

during high school, i remember a great Williams one, near to an Operation Thunderbolt cabinet...
well, the cabinet last only one month until it was removed, instead there was a long cue to play the pinball, great one !

Love Pinball....
I even had plans to add Flipper buttons to my cab design, LOL PINMAME it Smile
But I load Pinmame and the only game I ever want to play is Star Wars.....

Some Pinball games worth playing

Obsession - Atari STE
Pro Pinball : TimeShock! DC/PS1/PC/PS2(4 game collection)

"Pro Pinball" in general are awesome games.
Also, it got an HD remake not long ago....

Two of the weirdest Pinball cros over game in the Arcade I remember playing were
Baby Pac-Man. - Real pinball table but it had a hole at top of play area that when you access it transfers the game play to a mini pacman game on a screen above the pinball itself... Quite mad

Mario Pinball - It had a 2D mario game built into it that played like SMW when you hit the "?" on the pinball enough times...
I'll see if I can locate vids...
