Looks mega ugly, still I think this is the best thing that can happen to a Photo Play ;)

Also look at the suggestion to make an Ultracade out of it......mmmmmmmmm  ::)

I didn't say it was the ugliest.....I said it was mega ugly, especialy from the side...but it's mainly due to the overall uglynes of the Photo Play cabs themselves to be honest  :laugh:

Huh ? Is this an Europe-only thing ? Photoplay is a game cab with a touchscreen. The original showed 2 simular pictures and you have to point the differences on the touchscreen. Later more (mostly boring) games were added like quizes and they even tried some actual skill games...

The cabs are hideous IMHO. They mostly replaced fruit machines here because of tighter gambling restrictions the last years. You can't win money with it. They also further killed the videogames in small places like bars and cafetarias etc.

So converting them back into a REAL videogame is a good idea actualy, but I really don't think it looks very good. But again, that's mainly because of the ugly (CHEAP) cabs that are typical for photoplay games.

Here you can find a shockwave version of the original game:

Maybe. I know I've never seen one personally.

fruit machine?    :)


This looks like those "lowboy" machines that some people seem to like.  I think they look unappealling and wierd, although I probably wouldn't use the term "disgusting" unless there were some viscous fluids oozing out, or wiry hair-growth or something.

Close, but not quite.

This 11 1/2 year necro-bump beats it by a bit.
