I was thinking about this earlier in the day, you can get a game over in Space Invaders if the enemies make it to the bottom of the screen, even if you did not lose any lives. I am drawing a blank when it comes to other arcade titles that has something like this. Not counting kill screens, beating the game, or games that use time limits as opposed to lives, are there other arcade games that can cause a game over outside of losing all of your lives? i.e. Only counting games in which you get multiple lives. I know you have some console games like that e.g. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES, if you run out of time in the underwater stage, before you diffuse all the bombs.

The end

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

Nibbler  if you go over 128 and then die it's game over

Asteroids but only if you get too many lives the game will reset because it run's out of time while drawing your extra ships

Crackdown is like TMNT with the timer and bombs, iirc.
Jail Break: shoot the warden = game over no matter how many lives you have.

Huh? I didn't know that and I've looped the game many times in the past.
