A side-scrolling/Platform game where you play a role as a smurf to rescue smurfette, who has been kidnapped by Gargamel and taken her into his castle. She is locked in the cage. You must jump over obstacles like spiders in your attempt to rescue her. When you have successfully rescued smurfette, the game restarts all the way to the first level again and faster moving obstacles and more levels added making longer and more difficult to rescure smurfette. Note: This is much better than the Atari 2600 since the graphics are more detailed. I picked skill level 4 to play the hardest difficulty with the most levels. Played on MESS 0.143 emulator.

A sports/track and field game where you compete against each other in 6 track and field events. Only 2 players could compete simultaneously so on 3 and 4-player games, players had to wait their turn. An extra life is awarded for every 100,000 points acquired. Each player must qualify in the current event before they can move on to the next. Hit the 2 run buttons to build up speed and use action button to jump or throw. The events are : 100M DASH - Run as fast as possible. LONG JUMP - Run to the take-off board then choose angle of jump (42 is optimal). JAVELIN - Run to the line then choose angle of throw (42 is optimal). 110M HURDLES - Run and time jumps over the hurdles. HAMMER THROW - As the athlete spins faster and faster, time release of hammer and angle of throw (45 is optimal). HIGH JUMP - The athlete will run to the bar, just as he reaches it, use Action button to start the jump and hold down the action button to reduce the angle of climb, i.e. you start going straight up at 90 degrees if you tap the button just once. Use run buttons while in the air to gain extra height. Note: Used the fast cheat on the 110 meter hurdle and the high jump level.

A shooting game where you take control of a spaceship and has to fight their way through 6 different levels. Contact with either scenery of objects results in an instant loss of life. The player's Scramble ship is armed with both a blaster and bombs; the blaster is used for enemy ships, while the bombs fall down to attack ground-based targets and to collect fuel from fuel dumps. The fuel dumps are of particular importance as the player ship's fuel gauge constantly decreases as the player progresses, and the only way to fill it back up is by bombing the fuel tanks that are located throughout the levels. Fuel usage increases as the game progresses, until fuel usage actually outstrips the amount of fuel dumps available and the game becomes impossible. Scramble is considered a classic and was the world's first ever 'multi-level' shoot-em-up. Other names for this game are Bomber, Explorer, Impacto, and Strafe Bomb. Played on Final Burner Alpha emulator.

Computer Space, the world's first commercially sold coin-operated video game and video game system of any kind (predating magnovox odyssey) It's the first coin-operated arcade game to use a video display to generate graphics via video signal (predating Magnovox Odyssey). It was built by Nolan Bushnell (a founder of Atari and Chuck E' Cheese). He wanted video games available to the public but it was too expensive to use computer hardware or it's CPU. So he decided to build his own arcade cabinet (after Galaxy-Game in 1971) entirely of electrical transistors and circuits and discrete logics,( the same parts used to produced and manufacture television. Also the same strategy that Ralph Baer used to make Magnovox Odyssey usd.). To reduce cost and make them more affordable to the public. However, it was not financial success. But Nolan later created and release Pong in 1972, which was very successful. Galaxy-Game is the only coin-operated computer game to predate computer space. Galaxy-Game was built also built in 1971 , only with mainframe computer hardware and only one was ever built. So we probably won't see this game emulated since it's now at the hands of the museum. Simulation maybe possible but it won't be very accurate. Ralph Baer is often credted as the original inventor and creator of video games as he had the original idea for video games back in the early 1950s. But first person to bring video games to the public would have to be Nolan Bushnell. Without him, we would have no arcade games nor MAME would ever existed. This is not an emulation. More of a very accurate simulation. There are currently no emulators to play this game since MAME can only emulate games at CPU levels. This game does not have a CPU or ROM chips. In order for MAME to emulate this game, it will have to emulate the whole electronic hardware, which is not very easy to do. But software simulation is available. Thanks to the people who created this software simulation game, with sound effects and audio ripped from the original arcade machine.

A platform/run 'n jump game the player takes on the role of the eponymous bell-ringer, Quasimodo, in his quest to rescue the beautiful Esmerelda from the tower of the castle fortress. Quasi must complete a number of static screens, each presenting the player with different obstacles, to reach Esmerelda. These range from spear-toting guards, to fire chasms to missiles (fireballs or arrows) that must be jumped. Some of the trickier screens can contain more than one of these obstacles, such as spear-toting guards AND missles. One final problem that appears on every screen is the time limit. This takes the form of an enemy guard climbing the castle walls, if the soldier reaches the top, he will try to burn the Hunchback with his torch. If the Hunchback rings the bell before the guard has scaled the wall, a bonus score is rewarded. Note: No Cheats used. Just save states.

A platform/run and jump game featuring characters from the famous King Features Syndicate cartoon show of the same name. The aim of the game is to rescue Popeye's girlfriend, Olive Oyl. This is achieved by catching a set number of objects thrown down by Olive from the top of the screen; such as hearts, letters and musical notes. Popeye is constantly pursued in his quest by love rival, Bluto (a.k.a. Brutus). Popeye must either run away from Bluto or grab some spinach and punch him off the screen (he will, of course, return).

A platform/run and jump scrolling game consisted of 4 levels where you play as tarzan out to rescue a woman. It was the first 'side-scrolling, jumping & attacking game with a humanoid character', appearing in arcades three years before Miyamoto's classic "Super Mario Bros.". This was also the first video game ever to feature Tarzan as a playable character. But, Taito never bothered to get permission from the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs, so they were sued for copyright infringement for using Tarzan's likeness. So this title quickly went out of production, and is rather rare today. They later reworked the graphics and released this game as "Jungle Hunt". Jungle King gameplay begins at 00:06 Jungle Hunt, a Clone Version of Jungle King and gameplay begins at 6:02 Pirate Pete, a reworked version Jungle King and gameplay begins at 11:49.

A shooting game where the Rocket Launcher is under YOUR control. YOU make it move back and forth across the screen to launch Rockets that will eliminate your attackers. These attackers are displayed in groups, called 'racks', across the top of the screen. The first rack is made up of a small number of attackers. The second rack is made up of a larger number of these attackers. And intermixed with the racks of attackers is a rack with only a single fire-breathing Devil's head. The attackers and the Devil's Head will try to wipe out your Rocket Launcher. If they do, you lose one player. In emergencies, you have a Shield which goes all around your Rocket Launcher for a short period of time. It is activated by pushing the Shield button on the control console. BUT BE CAREFUL!! This consumes a lot of power and will only last a VERY SHORT TIME! Each attacker eliminated will cause a Bridge Section to appear at the lower left corner of the screen EXCEPT : when there is already a Bridge Section there or when you have a Bridge Section in tow under your Rocket Launcher. Pick these Sections up with your Rocket Launcher and move them over to build a Bridge across the gorge at the right side of the screen leading into the land of SATAN. When you complete your Bridge into the land of SATAN, you can cross it and do battle with him. If you win you will be rewarded by increased fire power for your Rocket Launcher. If SATAN defeats you, you lose one player. As your skill level increases, the number of attackers is increased and the speed that the fire-breathing Devil's Head moves is increased also. Bonus Rocket Launchers are awarded to you periodically throughout the game as you reach or pass certain preselected point values. Each attacker has an assigned point value. The object of the game is to HAVE FUN while constantly improving your skills as you play, eliminating as many attackers as possible each time to get the highest score.

Same as the head on games where you control a race car on a four lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to earn points and advance to the next level! The race track is broken up into four quadrants; your racecar must remain in the lane it is in except where there is a break in the lanes between quadrants. A second car is trying to stop which travels in the opposite direction. This car will always be trying to get into the same lane as you, causing a crash, so you need to make sure you switch to any lane it isn't in! To help out, your racecar has the ability to travel at a fast or slow speed. You begin the game with three racecars, and the game ends when all three cars have crashed. A two player game variation is also available where one player controls a car trying to collect the dots, and the second player controls the crash car trying to stop the first player.
