Hi all - I have a chance to pick up another cabinet on the cheap that needs some work and I was wondering if anyone recognizes the side art and could tell me what game this originally was ?

I looked up images for a Tetris cabinet and I don't think that it was that as they don't look the same, at least the pics that I could find.

Here is link to Imgur - https://imgur.com/a/7UAHDkp

Thanks !

  • No. It's your top score on Pole Position.
Don't listen to PBJ.  Definitely a Tetris machine.

This one drove me nuts yesterday.  The ship is similar to Moon Cresta, but not exact.  Probably same company or artist.
I spent more time than I should have trying to figure it out.  Never did find that exact art.
It's very cool though.

LOL - Yeah I had posted it might be a moon cresta at first also but then looked closer and it definitely isn't (thus the deleted post !) - No sure what it actually was and the chrome metal piece in the center of the CP is kind of strange as well.

I used to own a knock off Moon Cresta... that's a knock off Moon Cresta.

It's weird.  That metal plate in the center of the cp makes me think it had a yoke or something on it at one point and it was sloppily covered up.

Looks to me like the operator just got tired of cigarette burns on his machines.


I'm probably wrong, but it looks like generic conversion side-art to me.  There's a Missile Command and Scramble vibe being put out by the artwork.  The shape, looking at the contour by the control panel, also doesn't seem to quite fit the cabinet's profile.

That "metal plate" is an ash tray installed backwards.
