    Summer's of 80-82, I worked in the Games Department of a local amusement park.

    Besides fixing the skeeball machines, I got to work in the Arcade quite a bit.

    Luckily, our manager's were cool, and they let us hang out after the place closed and play Battlezone, Asteroids, Berserker etc...good times.

    Whoa! I've never seen that one, either....

    Game Play
    On each level, your oxygen supply is limited. After you dig holes, you must lure the aliens into them to trap them. As you go to higher levels, you will have to dig two holes, perfectly placed, one above the other, to keep an alien in.

    I've had MAME since forever with all the arcade games I could have ever hoped for as a kid. Have barely played them since they're just so damn repetitive. Back then with limited memory the only way to hold one's interest instead of new worlds/levels was to increase the speed and number of enemies on the same 4 maps or whatever.
