Last Mission Flyer (1986)

A big thanks to fellow Retroist fan and writer, Doug, for the heads up on this Data East arcade game from back in 1986 entitled Last Mission. This is an arcade game that I sadly didn’t get a chance to play in my youth…much less know of it’s existence. A big thanks of course to not only Doug but to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the scanned flyer below.

Thanks to Wikipedia:
“The players assume the role of an alien-humanoid space pilot who has been exiled from their home galaxy for committing an unlearned crime. The only way the player character can return is to restore their honor; the only way to do so is to invade and defeat the alien invaders who have been known to frequently attack the player character’s people using a ship called the Main Fighter.”

Thanks to Data East Gamer for uploading this video of the gameplay over on YouTube!

Class of 1812 Flyer (1991)

Released by Gottlieb in 1991, the Class of 1981 Pinball table is something I really wished I could have played in my youth. A big thanks as always to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the wonderful scanned flyers you see posted below!

Thanks to the White Spot for this charming walkthrough of the table. I particularly enjoyed the bagpipes that accompanied Zom. B’s Countdown Bonus.

Do! Run Run (1984)

As always I want to give a huge thanks to the Arcade Flyer Archive for not only the flyers you see below but for their excellent collection in general, these are works of art of course and it makes me happy to see someone doing their part to catalog them for future generations.

Sadly I have to admit that I’ve never seen Do! Run Run in the wilds of the arcade in my youth. If it wasn’t for the great C.A.D.E.R.S Facebook Group submitting the YouTube video below I probably still wouldn’t have been aware of the game!

Do! Run Run was the 4th and final arcade title of Mr. Do!, Universal’s video game Icon. In Japan it was known as Super Pierot. The arcade game’s title is indeed a reference to the popular song Da Doo Ron Ron:

Thanks to DigiHatesMakingNames for the Do! Run Run arcade video and to SixtiesPopGold for the excellent vid of the Crystals!

Burger Time By Dave Perillo!

Okay, okay. I thought the obviously talented Dave Perillo had outdone himself with that Muppet Show print from this morning…that I’m still upset sold out. Now he goes and creates a faux vintage advertisement for none other than Chef Peter Pepper from Burger Time! Dave did this for the Gallery 1988: Old School Video Game Show that opened last night and will run until October 8th.

You know this brings up a question I have…is it BurgerTime or Burger Time? If you go by the original flyers from Arcade Flyer Archive it’s all smashed together and yet the Japanese exclusive Super Burger Time has it separated. What do you feel is the answer, dear readers?
