Fantasy by SNK/Rock-Ola
« on: December 28, 2012, 06:57:58 PM »
This is such a overlooked game in my opinion. Pretty fun though. This is also the very same people who made Vanguard (it even ran on the very same hardware as this game too) and later made the legendary Neo-Geo. Not to mention this is the first game to feature a continue option.

Cool, though I had the impression that Moon Patrol was the first game that allowed continues...

Pioneer Balloon is weird yes. Its the one with the Flak-Gorillas throwing coconuts?
Looking for a container. Doesn't matter if full or empty. Doesn't matter if working or complete ... And all things Exidy!

Just checked Pioneer Balloon again, which is awesome. Not only coconut flak and wild-west wagons shooting ground-air missiles, no even tornades! Shitloads of!

Nice. :pac:

oh my god... i was looking for this game for ages but i had no clue what it was named.
i played it in a snack bar in Trier here in my street and all I did remember was this uh wagga wagga-sample.
i asked lot´s of guys over the past 10 years but nobody was able to help me. damn!!! i am happy now!!!

Next step... I want this dedicated cab! :D
Looking for Dragons Lair 1 or 2, Space Ace, Double Dragon, Robotron and yeah... a Shinobi would be cool, too!

Well, now we are getting serious. ;) Rock-Ola cabs are a bit tougher to find than Moon Patrol and stuff. I will let you know when I see a Fantasy in the US.

The dedicated SNK cab is pretty hot - and may be easier to find in Europe than the US.

True, forgot about this. Do you have a pic of the SNK version?
