Remember those arcade games you played as a kid? They are still out there. Come with us and we will tell you all about what it is like to find, restore, maintain and play these old games. Interested in acquiring games and starting a collection or just hearing some stories and reminiscing about the arcades and games of the past? This is the podcast you've been looking for.
In this episode, we delve into the hilarious, and sometimes deeply troubling, cult classic film Hollywood Zap. Released in 1986, this movie is a wild ride packed with outrageous characters, improbable plot twists and some sweet taters. Oh yeah, there are a few classic arcade games in there too. Join us as we critically dissect this b-movie.
We also respond to listener email and give an update on what is going on in our own arcades. Enjoy!
Join us as we explore the twisting, turning tunnels of Namco's 1982 classic, Dig Dug. We will discuss the cabinet design, art package, graphics, sound and everything in between. We have a little sidebar on our thoughts on patterns in games and let you know how we did in our high score challenge. Enjoy!

Great classic arcade show
If you like classic arcade games (mainly bronze age and golden age) then you’ll certainly appreciate the show. There’s some cussin so might not want to play it if you have young ones or your momma present. Give it a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
Stop sniffling into the mic
Whoever is loudly sniffling their nose into the mic needs to stop. Great show otherwise.
Good podcast. The only thing stopping it from getting a 7-star rating is the language. Not enough cursing.
