A few more AOU videos – Gaia Attack 4, Jigsaw World Arena, Puzzle of Ocha, Speed Rider

February 21, 2010

Just a few more videos from AOU I’ve found featuring things to round-up the weekend.

Taito’s Gaia Attack 4. It’s good to see it in action – they used video of real world environments and have overlaid them with 3D  graphics. There’s an interesting Ghostbusters style mini-game at the beginning of this video.

Jigsaw World Arena. This is another new puzzle game that uses the PGM2 hardware for solid 2D performance. This is a four player title that looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Puzzle of Ocha, the other PGM2 powered puzzle game that we had spoke of recently. Nice to see it in action.

Speed Rider by IGS.

One thing I like about arcade cabinets is the artwork some games have plastered all over. Great artwork can be an effective way to draw attention to an otherwise bland cabinet.  If you want a cabinet to stand out even more and you are an artist, then you might just do something similar to what these guys have done in London. Known as Faile and BAST, they have opened an arcade-themed art gallery which features their own “pop-comic-advertising style” over the cabinets. The exhibit is located at the Lazarides Rathbone Place Gallery in London and runs through March 19th. You can find out more as well as watch of video of them putting the exhibit together here.
