Diary Of An Arcade Employee Podcast – Episode 002 (Mr. Do!)

Welcome friends to the second episode of the Diary of An Arcade Employee podcast! Each show I will not only discuss a particular classic arcade game but share some behind the scenes information of what it’s like to work at the Arkadia Retrocade. I’ve also included some vintage audio treats that pertain to the game for this show which is Mr. Do!

If you have any suggestions for future games to cover or comments on the show itself you may email them to me at VicSage@Retroist.com. You can also contact me on Twitter and of course on Facebook. You can also keep up to date on what is going down at the Arkadia Retrocade by “Liking” their Facebook Page!

For more information on Mr. Do! why not give Episode 105 of the Retroist Podcast a listen?

To take a closer look at what the Japanese version of Mr. Do! looked like hop on over to the Arcade Flyer Archive!

For more interesting arcade information from the golden age you need only visit Earl Green’s Phosphor Dot Fossils site.

I also certainly hope you will share your own memories of not just Mr. Do! but your favorite arcades in the comments section. Thank you for your listening time and May the 4th Be With You!

  1. Great to hear more news from the Arkadia, Vic!

    Played some Mr.Do! at one of our local arcade spots. Very colorful game that enriched the gaming field with cool, fun gameplay.
    As such, the look and feel of it seems like a stepping stone to the Nintendo years that lay ahead.

    In our area, though, the cabinet didn’t stay long in one place (the game would pop up here and there in other spots) but Dig Dug came along and the playfield must’ve felt too similar, cuz that’s the one that stayed aorund thelongest.

    But we did get Mr.Do’s Wild Ride for a while, and I got to play that one on a daily basis.
    Fun stuff.

    As for arcades, I wish I could find imagery of my local haunts back then.
    It’s an ongoing quest.

    Love the Diary podcasts.
    Keep ’em coming, buddy.

  2. Thank you very much, Atari! It’s a great game and one I certainly wish I would have given a little more attention to back in my youth. :)
