    Default Your obscure favorites?

    Everyone wants a Tempest, a Ms. Pac-Man... what are the obscure cabinets you remember that you'd love to get? The one nonfamous game that you spent tons of cash on as a kid. This here was my favorite obscure arcade game in middle school. I would LOVE to get my hands on this cab now.

    That cab looks like it's puking! lol

    Anyways, my obscure favorites would be...

    Qix - any version - expecially the "Gals Panic" versions.

    Crayon Shinchan Orato Asobo - Japanese only - Point Blank stylle gameplay with a joystick.

    TMNT - Turtles In Time - I have yet to see an actual cab of this so I'm assuming it's pretty obscure. I love it though!

    That's all for now.

    Yeah, that baseball game is pretty obscure. I'm not sure if it was ever a dedicated or just came as a conversion. The good news, as I'm poking around KLOV today, is that there were several other similar baseball games that use that same 'unique' panel. So it is conceivable that I could get an empty cab and pick up the PCB/panel/marquee for Double Play. Hell, I could even see myself making some JAMMA adapters and getting a MultiJAMMA switcher so I could play them all... though that's probably crazy talk.

    You know a cab is going to be hard to find, or you're going to have to rebuild one from parts, when the KLOV entry has a broken dirty cab as the example pic.

    I *adore* Penguin-Kun Wars by UPL. Dodgeball meets furry animals meets awesomeness. Klov only has a marquee shot for the game and a few screenshots, but I assure you of its greatness.

    HA! It's Pong meets Air Hockey meets Kaboom! Nice. What is the control layout? Is it MAMEable?

    It's very MAMEable - check it out! Side to side joystick and a button = nice and easy.

    Not sure if it's obscure, but for me it's probably Major Havoc. Still wish that game would turn up on an arcade compilation.

    Penguin Wars? I had no idea that was an arcade game, I thought it was just some obscure Game Boy game... great game...

    I'd like a Time Killers cab. As horrible as the game was, I plunked so many quarters into that thing back during my days going to the local water slides (which are now just an abandoned rotting plot of land... so sad). Part of my time at those slides I was actually getting wet, the other times I was playing Killer Instinct Gold and Time Killers and one of those little "Play till you win!" candy machines. Ahh, to be young and witness that much gore and human dismantling...

    That looks really like World Series baseball! Is it the same, but with a different title?

    A Starblade sitdown cab (drool). Apparently they were kind of rare in the U.S. but we were lucky to have one at the local arcade in my college days. No offense to you Atari Star Wars fans, but this cab is everything you like times ten.

    Not the same, but the same manufacturer and control scheme... probably not all that different a game. Double Play had a home run derby mode that I loved, plus it kept persistent stats (via a username) WAY before that was normal.

    Though World Series didn't have the dedicated Home Run Derby mode of the later games, you could fake one and really stretch out your quarter. I forget where I used to aim my pitches and the bat, but if I played a 2 player game and threw the same pitch over and over, it was a home run every time. Definitely could stretch it out longer than the Home Run Derby mode if you got it right.

    There's a game, I believe it was made by the same folks that made this World Series game called Alley Master. It's a very good bowling game that uses a similar control style. I absolutely love the game...can't get it to work right on MAME...bah...I need the machine...

    Probably Miss World Nude 96. Horrible game, yet I have never seen the cab and it would be one I'd pick up if I ever had the oppurtunity to buy it.

    Fonz- A motorcycle game based on a guy who was petrefied of motorcycles. Plus the side art of his face is awsome! Fonzie is my hero.

    Demolition Derby- This one isn't that obscure but a VERY cool game. I love the machine (4 steering wheels and the shifter).
    Somebody make me a "CGE 2k7 Attendee banner" so I don't have to use this lame text

    "I'm Sorry"


    Strangest ass game, sort of a isometric pac-clone with japanese salarymen who chase the main character. Get caught and they go all dominatrix and start whipping your suddenly only-clad-in-tighty-whities ass.

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    Kaos by Game Plan - fun little single-screen platformer where you hop around collecting coins and avoiding dragons. Played it in a diner I used to frequent as a kid.

    Naughty Boy by Jaleco (distributed in US by Cinematronics) - Weird top-down-view game where you walk around throwing things at monsters. I used to royally suck at this game but now it's almost too easy.

    Both of these games are playable in MAME but seem slightly "off" to me. The sound on both is kind of scratchy. Unfortunately I haven't seen a real cab for either one in years so I can't really compare MAME to the real thing.
