In my youth I received a book of Spaceship art and even though at that point I couldn’t read I would sit in the living room and just stare at the photos and make up my own stories for each illustration. When I stumbled on this arcade flyer for Century Electronics (Dazzler, Cosmos) over at the Arcade Flyer Archive I had the same kind of feeling that I used to have when flipping through that art book. The artwork presented as the Space Fortress on this flyer deserves to be the side art on someone’s van!
I’ve never had the pleasure of playing Space Fortress in the wilds of the arcades back in the day but thanks to this YouTube video from Old Classic Game we get a good look at it. It had speech!
Now there was a second flyer released by Century Electronics for other countries, you do not have the van artwork on this one but you get a good look at the game cabinet.
So which arcade flyer do you prefer?
