my favorite game when i was 17 in 1982!
the superfast reostat on the real one made it real fun but i'm gettin used to the left right pad method
try it at my arcade BADGUYSKI

I liked this game in the old arcades, and thankfully there is a working cabinet in a retro arcade close to my home.

I just couldn't get into it the Game Room version. You really need the spinner on the cabinet to fully enjoy this game.

it was the first game i purchased! lol, myself, i used to play in second grade (82) at the pizza place in town. rick sprinfield in the background, large greeeezy pizza's, and coke out of large red plastic glasses! used to have tempest and the kong right up front by the gumball machine. put your quarter on the screen and wait your turn! ahh memories... :rolleyes:

...anyone want to watch "that's incredible" now?
