Top 3 games you've never played but really want to
« on: June 11, 2018, 05:01:48 am »
Just to make it more open, if you want to include "on a dedicated cabinet, rather than MAME", that's cool too.  I don't want this to be exclusively stuff that hasn't been dumped.

1. Planet Harriers
2. Galaxian 3 Theatre
3. Bouncer

There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low

I didn't realize there was a Taito version of Black Widow, are there major differences?

They were completely different games. The creator of Taito's Kram (which I liked a lot, though that's another one I only played in MAME), Mark Blazczyk, also did Black Widow. When Atari found out Taito also had a game coming out with the same title, they paid them to shelve it.

Mr. Blazczyk reportedly has the hardware for the game, but apparently little interest in making ROMS available for dump. Pictures of the marquee and control panel are linked through the undumped wiki and look pretty cool:

Ah that's a shame he doesn't want to submit them.  Early 80's Taito is my favorite, I'd love to check it out.

1. Major Havoc
2. Let's Go Jungle
3. Space Tactics

All these have unique controls or environments and I haven't even attempted to work them in MAME. I guess Space Tactics would be the easiest to play in MAME but it still ain't the same.
