Time for another special month here at the Arcade Archives- Donkey Kong month! 40 years ago, a game was released into arcades all over the world- and would change the landscape forever… Radarscope!

Funny- had this game hit about two years earlier, it would have been a hit. But, now they have a warehouse full of Radarscope machines and they aren’t selling. What to do…
I guess we will find out the answers in this month’s Coin Up about the big guy himself!

So join us in celebrating the 40th birthday of the big gorilla himself ( and some guy named Jumpman…) all month long here at the Arcade Archives!!!
And as I always say-
