Originally posted by Cerebus (Off subject... from the same company that did SPACE ACE and DRAGON SLAYER, there was another game that used scenes from Lupin The 3rd. Does anyone know the name of it. 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.

Pinball would have to be Attack From Mars! (klov.com). 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.

You are a bigger wuss than I thought. I've been on a couple of those one night "booze cruises" and my wife & I went on a 5 day cruise in 2004. Long Beach, CA to Catalina, CA, then to Ensenada, Mexico, then back.
