Straight out of today in 1986 comes Rygar. This is one I played at little mall store front I like to call Aladdin’s Castle in my youth. I believe it was also at Westgate Lanes but I could be wrong.
But starting today it could be yours with 200 upfront quarters.
“This version of Rygar is quite different from the arcade original and its ports, though it shares the same basic story: a legendary warrior rises from the grave in order to defeat the forces of evil in the land of Argool. Rather than being a linear arcade-style game, this version emphasizes exploration and allows the player to re-visit locations with special items that may open previously inaccessible locations.
The game contains a light RPG element in form of permanent power-ups which increase the main character’s performance in combat. It also offers multiple viewpoints: the action-oriented stages are viewed from a side-scrolling perspective, but when travelling between zones the game takes on an overhead view that can also lead to combat situations.”
