Ok this post has nothing to do with Christmas crackers.But I have received some cracking PCB’s since
my last post, ready for the festive season!
Mercs – Capcom
I rented the Megadrive
version from the local video shop and me and a friend spent a weekend playing
it.That was the last time I played it,
around twenty years ago!I still
remember the epic boss battles and the flame thrower being my favourite weapon,
Three Wonders / Wonder 3 - Capcom
Another Capcom classic
featuring three games - a puzzle, an action platform game and a horizontal
shooter.The board has been de-suicided.
RoboCop 2 – Data East
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time – Konami
TMNT was in all the arcades
back in the day.By the time this sequel
was released, the popularity of the Turtles and scrolling fighters was starting
to wane and I only saw this game in one local arcade.Awesome game though, I have the Super Famicom
conversion and am very happy to finally own the arcade original.
NEO Mr. Do! – Neo Geo MVS
Gunspike – Psikyo / Capcom - Sega Naomi Cartridge
This came with original art,
manual, and poster.
Power Stone – Capcom - Sega Naomi Cartridge
I loved playing this on the
Dreamcast.The cartridge came with
original art and manual.
I also received a huge bundle
of Gamest, a monthly Japanese arcade magazine.The issues are dated from 1987 to 1994.This is one of my all time favourite magazines along with Super Play and
Maximum, and I’m really looking forward to thumbing through them.
