Can you name this one? [Solved : It's an Epoch Pak-Pak Man!]
« on: August 15, 2010, 05:57:25 PM »
First here's the picture of the game I need to identify :



In short, I remember playing this one in the playground... long long time ago.
This game wasn't mine, but after watching that picture, I clearly remember it... but not its name  :?

Hope someone here will recognize it  8)

And Epoch has a Crazy Kong kind:

Here's an other color ... green  :arrow:



...mentioned as a Japanese model. But I didn't find yet any picture of a yellow model  ??? Maybe I'm wrong and I played on an other color? Strange...

According Rik from :



...it must be a UK model, and I think he's right : The book where I got that picture is ... from UK (well I've the French edition), but the author is from England.  8)

Thanks for these links  ;) Fortunately for me, it seems to be a common game, and it won't cost too much (I mean NOTHING compare to arcade collecting  :oops:)
