^^ bob tale, lol Smile

another OLD one, Moon Patrol (1982 Irem)
played around 84, in this one you drive a pink moon buggy, the screen scroll only in right direction, and you must jump to avoid moon craters and shoot at enemy ufo. to be an arcade, strangely has checkpoints

Tomorrowland Arcade should definitely be made into FLYNN’S With Journey playing and with a TRON cabinet that swung open to access the station to a massive TRON dark ride... Lol
I've done questionable things.

My first arcade machine experience was almost certainly Space Invaders back when that craze first hit.
...if anywhere near me had a Pong machine when they were out, it would've probably been that, but I don't remember ever seeing a Pong machine in the wild until a couple of decades later.

I had more fun with (and spent a lot more time on) Galaxian a year or two later, and that was certainly the birth of my lifelong relationship with videogames.

i remember to have played Galaxian extremely late, 88/89 maybe, during summer vacation, at sea...

First game i played on the real arcade machine was Asterix, beat 'em up from Konami. That was in 1992 i think, my grandpa and i went to the local "Shtrand" beach on river Danube and there were a lot of arcades near the "Freedom" bridge. Good times.  Smile

Yeah another racing game I still love playing a good amount Big Grin There was also a release of that game for the C64 i used to play with my Dad, it was pretty good but is a shame the C64 version is kinda bugged - spanners don’t count up properly and upgrades won't work Confused It can be tricky enough though with the controls & top down perspective. Also used to play some of CPC, ST and Midway Arcade Treasures (PS2) versions, way superior.

^^ yes, great times Smile

Kiki kaikai (1986 Taito)
i played this amazing game for a couple of months, before bar owner remove it, because with a single coin me and other friends, were able to play for hours Smile
the real issue was that game did not improve difficulty after each walktrough, so if you was expert in the first one, quite infinite gameplay granted
dont remember if i have played the jap or the bootleg european version (named Knight boy)
you control a Shinto maiden and you must defeat a lot of jap-culture taken monsters
Great bossfights!
