Top 5 "Under the Radar" Classic Arcade Games
« on: May 13, 2015, 04:50:24 am »
Figured why not post some games that people are probably not aware of or maybe have never played before that I have found to be great fun.

1. Pac-Land
2. Spectar
3. Zarzon
4. Rescue
5. Armored Car
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

Slither
Anteater
Liberator
Gladiator (Taito)
Space Zap

Having brain freeze today.  Just as there are many over rated and underrated games, there are also a ton of hidden gems.

Bank Panic is one for me. And I think it's relatively well-known, but if not: Black Tiger

And my go-to answer is always: Pachinko Sexy Reaction! ;)

They have one at Funspot, was in the last Manufacturer's side tournament.  It did have some problems though, would go all fuzzy or something.

Electric Yo-Yo is a hard as hell, super frustrating, but ultimately fair game.  Another unique gameplay offering from Taito.

Scratch that.  I just recently started playing this again and I had apparently forgotten the game straight up cheats.  Another broken offering from Taito.  Still fun though.
