Wonderful story/road trip/week end/game Bela  Kiss All the honors on homepage of course  Wink  arrow



At the time I was not really attracted by this type of game because I was too oriented science fiction to try these games 'old western stuff' as I called them ( oppps )
Now I find simply amazing, so clever in their design.

Congratulation for this catch Bela, and thanks for sharing with us that perfect 'Arcade Life Style' week end  Smiley

First: big congrats on getting this lovely EM machine. I have to say I am a bit like Bruno on this, because we wanted the "modern" games back then, but indeed, I too played many EM games because "that was what was there".

Totally love the machines today though, and the amazing mechanical stuff just always interests me.

Excellent and sunny road-trip report, love the pics with the "famous" people !

Bruno, your "headline marquees" just keep getting better, this one is SO much in the atmosphere of Bonanza.

(I think this is the first time I've ever seen this in color. We only could afford B/W TV's back in those days ! Tongue

Thanks for your kind words and the main page with that cool pic for Bruno. Grin
To be honest, I totally addicted to this game. Grin
The playfield is in the bottom of the cabinet facing up and you see the game in a mirror, it's like Space Invaders.
Some more pics:

The gun mechanism is also very interesting, if anybody interested, I could make some more pics from the inside. Wink

EM gun games are so kewl  Cheesy.   i hope yours will work right !

mine has problem, something unplugged under the gun...  it only worked 2 seconds  Roll Eyes,   if by luck you can take pictures under the gun,  that would help much !!  (marvin3m has NONE picture of the guts under the guns !!  none picture even among the dozens of models pictured  Roll Eyes)   that makes this kind of information uncommon & rare..
