This game ate a fair number of quarters from me.
I recall playing it both at a local movie theatre far and at the amazing Disneyland Star-cade. Two floors of video games, classics, masterpieces, quarter suckers, ghostbusters.
Even then I recall it being cheesy.
The game play amounting to Dragon's Lair.
I never cared for that game either.
Without knowing what to do it left the means to acquire that information to pay quarter, after quarter, after quarter, after quarter.
A few years ago I went to Gameworks and they were doing a lunch special where you got a 15 minutes, or so, unlimited play card. Bit of a gimmick but a good one.
I played Dragon's Lair for 5 or 7 minutes and will say that my feelings didn't improve even when I had prepaid for the experience.
