Loved Track & Field at the arcades.. Some of the most iconic audio..

Operation Wolf again was one i hunted out when i was lucky enough to go to the arcades.. One i would love to personally own.

Tehkan World Cup, omg that is one i completely forgot about... wow i need that in my life.

Spyhunter, only ever played the home version.

Missile command is another classic, never played this much at the arcades either.

Weird to think of arcades with no joysticks so a nice idea for a feature guys.

Very nice bytecast!  Of course Track & Field is an excellent game that I also get to play on my 2600 without a joystick!  Do check my review of the 2600 version here:  Atari 2600 T-U Reviews;)

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Pretty good!  Main eps get the big chunk of listeners but the BCs do fairly well. Considering we are new I'm quite pleased with the count so far.

Great show as always. I dont know where to start with picking 5 non joytick games since there are so many that are worthy of accolade. Early shmups, shooting games, trackball games, driving games, yoke control games. Actually, scratch my previous comment, Star Wars goes at number 1 on my list.

Now do the sequel bytecast, Joysticks Only, and spread the Karate Champ love. There must be loads of games without buttons, all tbose twin stick shooters and stuff like Pac Man.
