An original cabinet from 1979 with its simply stunning artwork. I love the surrounds boxing in the game screen.

This one still stands in Arcadia in Ryde, Isle of Wight. Check out the wear from the years of gameplay. You can almost see the outline of hands, where palms have rested attempting to beat high scores.

A timeless classic of a game and a real treat to see an original cabinet in a seaside arcade still. A game costs you a bargain 50p a go.

Brilliant.
