Hello all, I just discovered this forum and wanted to share my arcade documentary series. I hope this is the right forum.

I've been a videogame player since 1978 but lost my hands and feet to pneumonia three years ago. I figured out a way to keep playing and also started this documentary series just a couple of months ago. I hope you enjoy them. Also, up on my channel is the history of Chase HQ, paperboy, jungle hunt and more.

You are right that game looked great in pics was wondering what happened to it.

That game was really amazing and well ahead of its time. I remember the days where my friend (who suddenly became a best friend) got a job at the local arcade. He worked the late shift so we could go there later after the "kids" went home (I was probably all of 15). He'd just hand me a bucket of tokens for a buck. I would put tons of time into that game but could never get to the end. Was so hard. The video makes it look easy, but friendly stuff was always jumping right in front of you.

I love how shooting the chicken gives you a grenade :)

I always laugh at some of the complains kids have today about games. A loading screen!??!? Imagine having to put your quarter up on the cabinet to call "next" and hoping that the kid playing didn't just grab it from you and push you away. Back then the only anti-bullying campaign was us learning to never mess with anyone bigger than us unless you knew for sure you were faster.

Loved that game. There was one in the next town over in a little hole in the wall restaurant/truck stop. Always had to check it out when we were there.
