Sadly I’ve never had the pleasure of playing the 1984 laser disc game “Galaxy Ranger” by Bally/Midway and Sega. I do believe that if I had stumbled upon it in the wilds of the arcades of my youth I would have been sadly disappointed that it had nothing to do with the Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers animated series though. However I do believe the cabinet designers should have won an award for most awesome side art ever on an arcade game!

Thankfully we have some gameplay footage provided by the FlashFM Studio YouTube channel. After watching the video below, Galaxy Ranger slightly reminds me of M.A.C.H. 3 by Mylstar/Gottlieb back in 1983.

A big thanks as always to The Arcade Flyer Archive for the wonderful scanned Flyer images you see above and below!

    This one was always very popular at our local Showbiz Pizza. And, Vic you’re right – this cabinet was located near the M.A.C.H. 3 – so you’re not the only one who noticed the similarities.

    M.A.C.H. 3 was a popular game at my local Showbiz Pizza as well, Vinvectrex!

    Never seen that one, but I was always completely terrible at every laserdisc game I ever tried so I tended to avoid them after the awesome visual factor wore off after they were first introduced. Even to this day if I come across a Dragon’s Lair or Space Ace in a classic arcade and give it a shot it’s boom-boom-boom game over.

    But that fleeting 50 seconds of game play is worth it, right MadPlanet? :)
