Hey Arcaders! RayGunn Here, Bringing you another arcade video. It’s funny- when you type in video game music videos on YouTube, you never know what you will get! I don’t remember this one on MTV! The song comes from their 1982 album of the same name.
This song is catchy- I wanna to listen to the rest of this album! anyone who knows anything about this band, let me know in the comments below!
Lets get in our time machine and go back to 1982- for another STARCADE MEMORY!!!!
This time it’s homemaker Kathy Sherwood vs future stand up comic David Brown! And they’re playing for an EXTREMELY RARE game today- SLITHER from GDI!
A few things in this episode-
1) You get to see some great little known arcade games getting some play- Blueprint is a great example of that, and if you haven’t played it before, check it out on MAME- it’s a great game!
2) A little bit of info on our grand prize game- Slither is a little known early 80’s Centipede style game.
Slither was released by Destron/GDI out of Chicago, Illinois, in July 1982. GDI’s only other title, the cold war slide-and-shoot Red Alert, was released a few months prior in late 1981 (which was another great game- and it’s on MAME- give it a try!) Then GDI just disappeared- It’s a shame- having two great games like this, then to just shut down? Sadly, Slither doesn’t work on MAME, but there is a home port- on COLECOVISION! it came boxed with their Roller Controller expansion pack, and it plays great!
3) Best of all- in this episode- THEY PLAY SWIMMER!!! Don’t get me started on SWIMMER!!!!!
Got your favorite breakfast cereal ready? Yhen, let’s watch the fun!!! And Thanks again to RETROGAMECLIPS!!!
