Polybius arcade game - the most dangerous arcade game ever made - BBC

Post by sylvain »

Hi all,

Just came across this BBC Reel video about a supposed Polybius arcade game - Urban Legend/conspiracy video.
Sparky had posted about this 'game' a year ago in the MAACA Mame category. Interesting conspiracy!

https://www.bbc.com/reel/video/p0bf52h9 ... ever-made-
Looking for Bally Star-Jet, The Wiggler, Williams Magic City, Grand Lizard, Swords of Fury, 1986 Pinstar Gamatron, and a few others.
Collecting & repairing electro-mechanical and solid state pinball machines with quality and care for 40+ years already.
Serious and fun hobby, powerful nostalgia !
