Friends, I apologize about not getting a post uploaded the other day but to be honest I was working on this new Diary podcast. As you can plainly see the subject of this episode happens to be none other than 1982’s Pooyan. One of my favorite classic arcade titles even if it appears I am in the minority in seeing the virtue of Konami’s game. Now to be fair it was Stern electronics that handled the releasing of Pooyan cabinets here in the United States.
For this episode I do my best to tell you some of the more interesting elements of the game. Background information on those responsible for bringing Pooyan to the public, etc. As well as touching on the game’s legacy – which I have to say you might be mighty surprised to see where Konami has decided to give Pooyan a tip of the hat.
As always with the Diary podcast, I give an explanation of not only the gameplay but my personal memories of when I first encountered the game. In addition to including a few vintage audio treats related to the subject of the episode.
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 making sure to “Like” their Facebook Page. If you need a daily fix you can check out the Official Diary of an Arcade Employee Facebook page too.
Now then, make sure all of your little Pooyan are safely secure and enjoy the episode!
