Gauntlet Legends (Carolina Arcade Museum)

I have played the original arcade game Gauntlet (which I don’t think was at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City with this one) but I didn’t like it too much. I was willing to try out a newer 3D sequel to the “classic.” Atari made this one in the late 1990’s. But I wasn’tContinue reading “Gauntlet Legends (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

Lethal Weapon 3 Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)

Yet another pinball machine at Forest City’s Carolina Arcade Museum was Lethal Weapon 3. It was made by Data East in 1992 to go along with the 1992 Mel Gibson movie. I never saw the movie or the series in general and I didn’t like the machine at all either. It’s not a terrible designContinue reading “Lethal Weapon 3 Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

While I never saw the movie until a few years ago (disliked it), I tried Sega’s pinball game based on the movie at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina. And it’s about what the movie was. There’s aliens, soldiers, and just a rather bland and stupid design. I wasn’t very impressed byContinue reading “Starship Troopers Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

SlugFest Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)

One of the most unique pinball machines at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina was SlugFest. Made by Williams in 1991, it’s sometimes not really considered a pinball machine for an obvious reason. Because it only has one flipper and the layout is very much unlike any other traditional pinball game. ItContinue reading “SlugFest Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

Gladiators Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)

While this wasn’t a favorite of mine at Forest City NC’s Carolina Arcade Museum, this Gottlieb pinball machine from 1993 has a unique history. When the game was first made, it was intended to be based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda, as the same company made the Super Mario Bros. pinball. Though for a sillyContinue reading “Gladiators Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)”
