RAMPAGE Super Stretch Figures!

It may have taken over 30 years and an upcoming movie starring The Rock, but we finally have some official Rampage figures! The fine people at Lanard Toys decided to release three Rampage figures based on the original characters from the classic 1986 arcade game.

Super Mario Cereal!

It has been way too long since we had an arcade related cereal grace supermarkets. While the new Super Mario Cereal by Kellogg's is tied to the new Mario game, Super Mario Odyssey, the shapes are still classic Super Mario Bros. which is exactly what the gaming world needs. More Super Mario love.

Pac-Man Vitamins!

The 80's were great. We will never have a decade so obsessed with excess, neon colors, and ridiculous arcade/video game tie ins again. Speaking of Tie-ins; Pac-Man must hold some sort of record. Between the cereal, pasta, wax packs, board games, bed spreads, and even roller skates; you could play, eat, sleep, and exercise with Pac-Man! But one of the oddest arcade oddities must be Pac-Man Multi Vitamins... and I just happened to get my hands on a sealed box of the pre-school variety! But first, here's a classic commercial starring Kevin Arnold!

Crazy Tower Redemption Game Review!

Here's a video that was originally meant to be a part of our Christmas Mayhem last year, but we ran out of time. While it may have nothing to do with Christmas (or winter), I am stretching it really thin by including it based on the game's developers, Adrenaline Amusements who are located in Canada.

Crazy Tower is well worth a play if you see one. While the gameplay is very simple (think of it as a three dimensional Stacker), the hologram display will flood your brain with memories of SEGA's Time Traveler or Holosseum.

Be sure to give Crazy Tower a few plays in order to see all of the wackiness that happens as the tower gets taller!

Frontierland Shootin' Arcade!

Big memories with this one! It amazes me how this original opening day attraction has managed to stick around as long as it has. This is a MUST when I am in the Magic Kingdom. I remember my first time playing it back in the late 80's and thinking how amazing the animated objects were. I was shocked, stunned, and baffled at the size of this shooting gallery and the amount of targets (my previous experience had been random carnivals and oddball amusement parks). I love how a cemetery (Boot Hill) is included along with some skulls, desert animals, light up buildings, and other scenery to help create a Tombstone feeling. The best part is the transition from day to night. Be sure to bring a few quarters the next time you head over to the Magic Kingdom and give the Frontierland Shootin' Gallery some love!
