Umaril- Dod you ever play Crystal Castles? I mainly remember it has a lot of secret warp things.

I tried Crystal Castles a few times and never got the warp thing, but I remember seeing Mark play it and go through it like he was a hot knife thru butter. I was never good at any of the trak-ball games. I was always better at stuff like Wizard of Wor and I was able to go for quite a while on one quarter with Ikari Warriors.

4. Bagman (1982, Valadon/Stern)
Cool (but VERY hard game) where you are a convict trying to clear mines of gold bags, with speeding carts, deep shafts and 2 tenacious guards providing constant danger.

7. TARG (1980, Exidy)
Simplistic but tough game with a 9X9 grid of boxes you must move your ship between while avoiding/shooting sneaky arrow-shaped baddies.  An extra target comes out once in a while to try to ram you, as well.

9. TAC-SCAN, 1982 SEGA
Cool vector game where you have a group of ships you control all at once.  Fly through space and blast enemies and fly through tunnels.

What I love about MAME is being able to experience a lot of these games again, but for free  in the comfort if my home, since arcades are pretty much all dead.

10. Nemesis/Gradius, Konami 1985
One of Konami's greatest achievements.  Groundbreaking shooter with increasing firepower options after destroying groups of enemies or certain enemies, leaving power-up capsules you can collect.  Colorful graphics, hidden bonuses/1ups, and amazing music makes this one of the all-time greatest shooters.  Also introduced us to Konami's obsession with Easter Island statues (Moai).

11. CARNIVAL (1980, Gremlin/SEGA)
Fun shooter where you mow down rows of rabbits, bears and ducks (the latter of which can swoop down and eat your bullets) on rotating lines.  Shoot off the pipes on a rotating wheel above and eliminate all the targets to advance to a bonus game where you shoot a polar bear as much as you can before he runs off.

My buddy Richie Knucklez had one of these in his old arcade. In fact, Richie had a huge business a few years back before he had to downscale to a smaller one..he had everyone show up for special events..Billy Mitchell, Steve Wiebe, new and current DK champ Hank Chien, and all of the Twin Galaxies people, to name a few. Keith Apecary was even there!

I miss Richie's old place...we had world recognized tournaments and live webcasts. If it was a game 30 years or older, Richie had it!

12. FOOD FIGHT (1983, General Computer Corporation/Atari)
Great version of the timeless school cafeteria pastime.  Steer a boy around an open playfield, tossing piles of food at chefs who can do the same to you, as you try to reach the ice cream cone on the opposite side of the screen.  Here and there an instant replay of a successfully completed level plays.  This was one of two games General Computer Corporation made for Atari (Quantum being the other) in payment for ripping off Missile Command earlier.

Here's a video of his arcade. I can see why you miss it.

Yep, Richie is a good friend of mine, and I remember the video because I was there the day it was shot.  Richie was also the front man for a short-lived but very popular New Jersey hardcore metal band called Knuckle Sandwich.

Here's one of his old songs from his first album, "Nice."  The song is called "Show Me The Rock".

Basically SCRAMBLE with a chopper, but with a few new enemies.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
