Arcade Imperfect - a new book

Post by Professor Brian Strain »

I have teamed up with Jerry Ellis of Golem Books (creator of The Book of the Game of the Film) to write a new book:


With an exclusive Oli Frey cover, the book looks at over 300 classic arcade games and investigates how well (or badly) they were converted to home computers. Starting with single screen games, moving on to scrolling and finishing with 3D, each entry includes trivia about the arcade machine and its maker, or glimpses into the story of how the game reached the home. With review ratings and opinions from classic magazines, it is a must read for arcade gamers and retro fans.

500 hardback copies will be printed - but if you want to be immortalised on the Space Heroes page, then pre-order soon as the first 160 people to do so get to be named in print.

Here’s the introductory video:
