Help!

Long time lurker.  First time poster.

I just got my hands on a gutted Taito cabinet.  Looks like it was a birdie king 2 (straight sides, not curved).   I want to restore it, but I'm not a big birdie king fan.  So I was going to make it into another Taito game.  I can't decide on which one.  So I'm taking votes.

Mr. Do?  Zookeeper?  Jungle Hunt?  Something else?  None of the above- just make a MAME cabinet like everyone else?

Thanks!

Mr. Do was Universal.

Make it an Elevator Action.

Sure, but Taito made the conversion kit. 

I like the idea of Elevator Action.

Qix, space invaders or bubble bobble were good... zoo keeper is a particular favourite of mine also.

Qix or Jungle Hunt

Elevator Action!  The artwork is awesome.   

I had a Taito I wanted to restore.  It had a generic trivia game inside when I got it and the whole thing was painted black but I had big plans...  until I realized I had nowhere to put it. Oh well... maybe in another life.
