Old arcade game

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. At a mates barbecue last night we got on to talking about the old amusement arcades at the seaside and someone mentioned this old game - I used to spend about half my holiday money pretending to be a U-boat captain sending allied shipping to the sea bed. When you fired, a series of lights under the sea flashed showing the track of the torpedo. Any one else remember these?

  3. Likewise,spent too many pennies playing those as a youngster....
     
  4. That looks quite immense! Curses to my young age.
     
  5. I remember throwing all my pocket money into these things.

    I also spent most a college grant/bursary on afterburner and the star wars arcade game that you could sit in.

    Walking the dog the other day, I passed a dumped and smashed, gutted "space invaders" frame/machine. Sad...
     
  6. There used to be a huge one at Penarth with 5-6 periscopes and convoys of 30 odd ships.

    I was only about four and loved it.

    When I was young we spent our time digging Anderson Shelters.

    Later we got Space Invaders

    I remember Galaxian too - outstanding.

    It was a machine casing like that one, that I passed the other day.

    I think I've still got a Binatone home game kicking about in the loft.

    Luckily enough I'm wearing my readers so can read that small print.

    What was the name of the arcade game with the Uzi fixed on a post? Wolf or something??

    I also remember buying at Woolies (Woolworths) a toy SLR...
