Friday Flyers: Barrier

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

As always let me give a big thanks to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the flyer scans you see posted below.

In 1977 Barrier was released into the wilds of the arcades by Cinematronics, utilizing its patented Vectorbeam graphic technology. Tooling around the internet I was able to stumble upon a very, very interesting view of that time in the company by Tim Skelly himself. Make sure to follow the link and give it a read, interesting stuff!

Now Cinematronics is famous for another arcade game, that most consider a classic, Star Castle. But I personally know the company from another familiar title from my youth…

    I won’t lie, friend. That is one of the very first things I thought of when I found the flyer. :)
