They had better still release a proper version of Defender. I'm still worried about that.

And here, I had already lost all hope...

Gotta make my way to Wal-Mart soon! :-)

I don't think you can find Spy Hunter or Defender on the WalMart site using ANY keywords, including the exact title they use on their site - "Games Spy Hunter Mini Arcade Game" and "Games Defender Mini Arcade Game". But if you use the UPC to search, they come up:
Spy Hunter: 885561096408
Defender: 885561096026

I've got that Spy Hunter, despite the questionable choice of only having one weapon at a time (meaning loss of gun for...) it's an oddly fun game and a bit more challenging due to that choice. The audio and visuals are amazing, right in there with the arcade too, so it's a nice variant of the original but if you're a purist it may piss you off.

Carmen I found this about a week ago at an overstock/return stock shop, got lucky they had one sealed up for $10 so I grabbed it. I'm shocked how good it is, far better and more reasonable than Oregon Trail with all its overkill use of death to make a point. The whole setup from the old DOS era game is there with the clues, filling in for the warrant, travel and questioning, all of it down to the win/loss of the hunt -- and it saves progress too. I can't recommend that one any higher of the two.

I enjoy this one very much, they really did a great job on it.

I'm actually in the process of designing a little arcade room for all of my Basic Fun mini arcade cabinets...


If this is something you're still doing, check these out: A mini Skee Ball and Whac A Mole made by Basic Fun. They fit in well with their Arcade Classics line. Skee Ball has a date of 2018 on the back of it and was ordered online. Whac A Mole I purchased a couple of weeks ago at Target. Both are neat fun little games :)

Yes, I have already had the Skee Ball in my collection for a while but I have not seen the Whac A Mole before. I'll keep my eyes open for one!

Be on the lookout for this as well, I found out about it shortly after my last post here. It's a mini version of the ol' school arcade Basketball game Pop A Shot.

This is part of the Midway Classics series like the Whac A Mole is.

Also, a completely unrelated PM has been sent to ya :D

Very nice! I wonder how many more Midway Classics there will be?
