PUTT Championship Edition gets an update; a little more on Galactix

December 10, 2009

I saw PUTT Championship Edition at Betson’s IAAPA booth but what I didn’t realize at the time was that they were showcasing an updated version of the game there. Thanks to a press release sent out today, now I know that, and knowing is half the battle. The other half would be the details – they have added a new course and an option for ticket dispensation so the game can serve as a redemption game if the operator so desires it. The 9-hole course addition brings the number of  holes up to 27 and hopefully will equal more replay value for operators who have already purchased the game.

In addition to that we received a press release for one of the more interesting video redemption games seen at IAAPA, Galactix by Chicago Gaming. Even though it’s a redemption game I find this to be great concept as the way they made the game is a bit different from other things I have seen in the coin-op sector in a while. Galactix is a six player game where the coin serves as your controller – once inserted it launches a missile on the screen and if you time it just right you can hit the center target for 100 tickets. This is quite difficult of course as there are many obstacles in the way so it’s more likely that you’ll end up hitting a target of lesser ticket value. It’s both simple and eye-catching, so I imagine that it will be a popular item for redemption centers that pick it up.

For the press releases on both of these games, hit the link below.



Pics from IAAPA 2009 (Part 1)

November 20, 2009


Well I’m back from IAAPA 2009 and it was an excellent show. I had always heard how large it was but you have to see it (and walk it) to believe it. I am going to start off with some picture updates here since that is a bit easier to get up and later I will be uploading videos to my Youtube channel. I took more video than any of the other shows I’ve been to which in part is due to the amount of content I found there.

Here we go – because this post is going to be quite large when I’m finished with it, I am going to put everything after the post break. Click on the images to see them full-size. Games to look for below: Cooking Mama, Tank! Tank! Tank!, Dead Storm Pirates, Terminator Salvation, Big Buck Hunter Open Season, Sega Racing Classic, Hummer and more.
