More images of Sea Wolf

Thanks to our reader Tony Del Grosso, here are some more images of the new redemption game that is based on the classic arcade title Sea Wolf. From the looks of it, the entire display appears to be the periscope view and the player moves the control to fire torpedoes at the ships that pass by on the screen, although the paths that the torpedoes follow are pre-set. Still it looks like a fun and classic arcade concept, with the redemption payout of course. Thanks Tony!

Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2007

Happy Halloween everyone! We hope you have a great holiday and a fun night. If you get a chance, play a few arcade games as well. I attempted to carve a pumpkin with Bentley Bear in it (from Crystal Castles) but the pumpkin shell was a little too hard and I didn’t have the right tools to carve out the detail I wanted.

Do you have any arcade games that you ever got a chill from? Comment on what you think the scariest arcades of all time are! It can be a little difficult as when you play an arcade title it’s generally in public but there still are some good ones out there.

Personally I have taken some time to play Dracula the Undead for the Atari Lynx today. This is one of the creepiest games ever – probably the most creepy and scary on a handheld.

Golden Tee Goes Mobile

October 30, 2007

[Via The Stinger Report]

It seems inevitable that any game that achieves great popularity in arcades it will end up in a form outside of arcades. There already was a plug-n-play version of Golden Tee for the home and now Magmic Games has released Golden Tee Golf Mobile Edge for mobile phones. According to their website:

Golden Tee® Golf, the most played coin-operated video game franchise in U.S. history, returns to mobile with Golden Tee® Golf Mobile Edge. Enhanced gameplay is the star! Use the new quick-play controls to curve the ball around hills, add backspin on greens and get roll for extra distance on the fairways. Like the coin-op game, the ball truly reacts to the terrain by rolling down steep slopes and bouncing off rock ledges, creating strategic decisions never-before-seen in a mobile golf game.

Golden Tee® Golf Mobile Edge features 4 all-new challenging golf courses, quick-play putting and driving games, golfer customization and Golden Tee® Moments of the Game replays of your greatest shots! You can also connect to the Golden Tee® coin-op world and check your stats, see contest history and even locate a coin-op machine in your area – all at the click of a button!

I don’t know about the game being the most played coin-op franchise ever (I thought that honor belonged to Pac-Man; but they do say that the game has been played over a billion times so maybe it’s surpassed Pac-Man recently) but if you love Golden Tee, this gtm3.jpgis the only way to take it with you for now. Interestingly enough this game can actually connect to the internet, retrieve their stats from their game online and even find a Golden Tee machine in their area. You can pick up Golden Tee Mobile for $9 although I do not see any specs it requires from a phone on the site.

Another great arcade game room neon sign

I caught this on the KLOV forum thanks to poster Zork40. He is also going to modify a license with PacMan on it that should look great.

It would be neat to do one for Tempest as well…

Soundtrack for Sega's Dynamite Deka EX (aka Asian Dynamite)

October 29, 2007

While I haven’t heard of Sega’s newest NAOMI based 3D fighter showing up in any arcades in the States yet(I know it’s shown up in some venues in Europe however), it’s still a game I hope to play soon – even if I have to end up importing it. I do hope Sega brings a brawler game to the Lindbergh platform though – brawlers were made for arcades and I miss seeing them and playing new ones.

Anyways, if you happen to be interested in Asian Dynamite or have a had a chance to play it and listen to the soundtrack, you soon will be able to own the said track. There are a total of 45 tracks (they must be rather short) and it goes on sale in Japan on November 29th for about 2,525 yen.
