Saturday Supercade: Mappy

Do you know what is awesome? Mappy. Mappy is one of my favorite arcade games by the way, it was a favorite of mine in my early days of gaming but when I brought it up in school during lunchtime I got that stare, you know the one I’m talking about. Showbiz Pizza was not the first place I played Mappy but since no one ever seemed to want to play it I could easily lay claim to it in my youth. Let me say this, I like the game so much I bought the ‘album’ on Itunes from the Namco sounds page. In the states by the way, it was manufactured and distributed by Bally/Midway.

A huge thanks to Noise Land Arcade for the wonderful photo of the Mappy arcade game in all of its glory as well as the coloring guide for the game from over on their Flickr site.
