Euro cabs
« on: February 11, 2008, 02:46:09 pm »
I'm seeing so many European versions of well-known games lately that I thought it might be fun to open a thread about them.  It may also be fun to show some "general"/Jamma cabs from Europe.

Please post whatever you got....

Here's my first:
Caterpillar, of course a Centipede bootleg (from Italy) This is actually for sale now here...:

I stole the 2nd pic from KLOV because I really dig that side-art !!!

Mechanized Attack by SNK. This one has full-size art and kick-plate art. Both are different from the "regular"  US (?) version:

OK, this one is a bit out of my scope, I hate Photoplays, but I thought this looked kinda nice:

This one looks like a pretty recent Jamma cab. Not too bad looking...

Posted this one already in my "asteroids" thread, but thought it is interesting enough to re-post here:

A direct Asteroids clone, most likely a bootleg by HOEI international (this is WRONGLY indicated here:
http://www.arcadeflyers.com/?page=thumbs&db=videodb&id=2394)

Not sure if it's a Euro thing, but I haven't seen a Taito Moon Cresta before:

Very poor quality pictures but pretty weird: Galactica. Likely an Italian cab.
Game in it is (bootleg) Time Pilot.

I posted this already in the "most ugly cab ever" thread but it fits here as well:

This is a typical Belgian universal cab. Looks to be meant to blend in with the rest of the bar's interior :D

Just when you thought you'd seen them all:

A German built race sit-down...thing....it's supposed to "swivel".

Called Nurburg-ring, after the famous German race-circuit.....


Look at the electronics !!!!!!! It's for sale......but defective, what a surprise....

The Space Invaders went very quickly off the advertising site, so I bet it  got sold.

I know who has that Meteor now......and uhm, let's say that I have some hope of adding it to my collection in the future..... :)

Phoenix. Looks like a Zaccaria cab to me.

What a fabulous side-art, compare it to the boring US-version !


But, but....what kind of "joystick" is that ??

Space Empire.....wonder what clone this is....

[EDIT] I thin this one was built by Hoei International (just like the Meteor (Asteroids clone).
I think this because:
1) exactly the same start buttons
2) the same T-molding
3) exactly the same coin door and mechs.

Condor (=Phoenix clone but with a fuel option added. KLOV says this is the first game with that feature (and not Scramble).

Look at the player 1 and 2 buttons ! Nicely recessed. Looks a bit like Atari vulcano's....

I first thought the side-art was damaged, but it looks the same on both sides.....weird.

Nice idea  :applaud:

I think I can add some:

1) wall mounted Lady Bug (according to the upright machine you posted)

2) Zaccaria licensed Scramble

3) Take Off, a copy of Rip Off


More to come...have to take some pics :)

Thanks Luigi !


I >LOVE< that Scramble art !!! Italian design at it's best :D

That Take-Off side art recycles the alien of the original art of the Japanese Namco Galaxian cab (of which a European version was also built in Italy) !!!:



Already found some more pics, will upload them later...

Thank you so much for posting these. I've enjoyed the art on most all of these. From what I've seen on the web there doesn't seem to be a lot documented about euro cabs. It's great to see so many in one place.
Brevity is not my strong suit.

Lady Bug in Italian Zaccaria cab. Not sure but I guess it's a licensed game since they used the original name:


By the way, check out this site for lots of Zaccaria cabs:
