Overscan Invaders

 

Overscan Invaders

Space Invaders, a two dimensional alien attack which sees their mothership frequently flyby to check on her troops as you blast them all to smithereens with a cannon that can only reload once the previous shot has hit its target or disappeared off-screen. Hmm, it sounds rather lame but actually it works and it works very well of course!

Sega Saturn unravelled after 20 Years.

 

Sega Saturn unravelled after 20 years

The Sega Saturn has been deemed not only one of hardest consoles to program software for, but also emulation of this system has been tricky for quite a few people wanting to get the very best out of this machine. With consoles of all types and sizes now moving into their twilight years certain elements of these machine are beginning to fail quicker than others, examples of say the CD lens beginning to stop reading discs, or power strips weakening etc. causing your lovely console to bow out before its time.

Ranarama

 

Ranarama

Many games seem put you in command of a musclebound warrior or perhaps a Hollywood hero with a deadly automated weapon. Not so with Ranarama, how about a novice magician called Mervyn who has accidentally turned himself into a frog. Yep, you're a frog!

Microids had a silly idea about what the future holds for sporting events and this obviously involves a dollop of ice hockey played through an isometric marble madness environment.

Gynoug is a side scrolling shooting game, with a mythical theme, released in 1991. It was named Wings of Wor in the US.

Donkey Kong Arcade Machine – The Home Straight - Part 2

Part 2 – The Home Straight

 

So in Part 1 you will have followed my journey so far in restoring this beat up Donkey Kong cab. I felt I was in the home straight now – it was time for some artwork to be applied to the sides of the cab. This part scared me to death, because once the art is on, it’s on. You can’t get it wrong, there are no second chances. So here it is. A step by step guide to applying side art:

Donkey Kong Arcade Machine – Raising The Dead - Part 1

Part 1 – Raising The Dead

 

I can’t imagine what it must’ve been like to build arcade cabinets from the ground up on a factory production line back in the early 1980s. Rumour has it that those employed by Atari in California to hand build the classic cabs we know and love, were largely low-paid, permanently stoned hippies and Mexicans (am I allowed to say that?!). Some even go as far to say that the unique musty arcade “smell” you get when you switch on a thirty year old arcade cabinet is part weed, infused into the wood of the machines by the workers smoking on joints all day on the production lines.
