That and the one that used scenes from GALAXY EXPRESS 999. Those were fun, but if you know the movies, they were really easy to play.

The laserdisc game that used Lupin III footage was called Cliff Hanger. I remember watching someone else play it in the arcade long before I knew who Lupin was.

Don't know anything about Galaxy Express 999, though.

On topic, my faves back in the day were Tempest, Dig Dug, Dragon's Lair, and Captain America and the Avengers.

Dang, this thread popped up again after five years. Holy cow.

By the by, no one got the number of players right for the two-screen X-Men game, myself included: It was six players, actually, those being Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and (ha!) Dazzler.

Throw Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man on there from my previous post.

Yeah, the six-player X-Men game was totally badass.

So were the other beat em ups like Simpsons, TMNT, Captain Commando, Ninja Gaiden, and Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.

    Pinball would have to be Attack From Mars! ( Up until a year ago, I'd spend about 10 bucks a week on that thing (RIP Playland), and it was a finals week tradition of ours (along with not shaving until your last final) to go play pinball before each final (to relax).

You sir, are awesome.

Doctor Who - Had a really easy multiball. Great sound effects. A little Dalek on top of the machine that would start screaming "EXTERMINATE!"

Champion Pub - Had a little boxer in the middle of the board and you "Fought" him by hitting him with the ball.

Whirlwind - Older machine with circular sections of the board that spun and a cartoon cloud with a fan in his mouth that blew air on you while you played.

Games: Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Joust, Dragon's Lair, Rampage, Splatterhouse, Q*bert
