OOh... arcade. Rampage.


(I was about to say Zaxxon, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back, for the Atari 2600... but I don't know if they were ever arcade games.)

Zaxxon was ... the other two I think were, or some variation thereof.

Starfleet combat simulator -- IMO the best of the "color vector" games. I used to own one.

I became a Q*Bert master during my brief stint as a dental student. I think that's about the only worthwhile thing I've drawn from that experience. Oh, and the free Sonicare toothbrush I scored right before I quit. I just had to listen to the vendor's blabbing about it for like, an hour.

Pengo. Never seen in any emulator.

Only place I can play it anymore is at Connie's Space Lounge at Convergence.

This has the makings of a quiz, like you used to see in the magazines in the checkout line:

Zookeeper. Followed closely by Pengo. But most arcades I went to didn't have either one, so I settled for Centipede. Tempest was my favorite to watch other people play.
