When I was a kid, I remember playing an arcade game that I can't find anymore. It was a space shooter, but also an FPS. The graphics were polygonal based, or maybe vector? It was a long time ago. I don't remember the name, but it started with a "P", I think.

I only played the game about once or twice, and I was like 7 years old, so the name is just kinda lost on me. The cabinet was blue, the start screen had a weird, trance-like tune that played, and the gameplay was fast paced.

You start in a tunnel, then get launched out as the ridges of the tunnel strobe and glow. Your enemies are shapes, I think, and they also strobe when you shoot them. I can't remember too much beyond that, and I can't find this damn game anywhere.

If anyone knows anything about the game I described, then please let me know. I want to get a MAME file of it, or at least a video of the game so my brother doesn't think I'm remembering incorrectly.

Long story, but him and I have been arguing over the existence of this game, and he's been telling me that he never saw a game like that at the arcade we went to. Although, he's older than me, and he remembers where we used to live. We lived in Tacoma, Washington. So if anyone lives or used to live there and has seen this game, let me know. Also, the arcade is probably closed, but I don't know. Can't even remember if it was a real arcade or a mall, and neither does my brother.

Arcade thread? Didn't see one. I just went to San Jose CA and loved round 1. Huge variety of classics and newer stuff. Anything worth checking out in Las Vegas? What about your locals?

How do you even have fun with arcade games if 1CCing a game is so difficult?

Usually continuing (in a non-fighting game) lets you respawn rather than restart the level so I feel guilty.

I've only 1CCed a handful of games, Contra, Renegade and Kicker.

I love arcade games but I'm not necessarily good at them. How do you impose limits while still having fun? Do you do a single credit? A single credit with extra lives or lower extends? A set number of continues?
