Crystal Castles Arcade Flyer (1983)

Crystal Castles - Atari - Arcade Flyers Archive
Oh the many fond memories I have of playing this classic Atari Trak-Ball arcade game at my local Showbiz Pizza. The first time I got to see this game in action wasn’t at the arcade actually but the TBS arcade game show Starcade, I was immediately hooked by it’s rather cartoon-like visuals and jaunty opening tune.

Thanks to The Arcade Flyer Archive we can take a look at some of the various flyers that Atari released to Arcade owners to get them excited about their new game.

That second Flyer image though makes me think one thing…Bentley Bear is drunk!

  1. Nice flyers and yes, he is drunk in that pic.

    Funny thing about this game to me, never played it much, because someone else was always playing it. I did like watching others play it though.
