80′s Arcade Heroes

Arcade Heroes

Arcade heroes of the 1980′s!



I love Burgertime. The generation that enjoyed this game at the arcade are parents now, so my thinking is why not add these games to the stories we tell our kids? They’ll never know what a cabinet game is or that you inserted a quarter to play it. It blows my mind that these games are vintage antiques. However, like typewriters, phonographs and wooden letters, they’ll always be cool.

Burgertime is a 1982 arcade game created by Data East for its DECO Cassette System. The game’s original title,Hamburger, was changed to BurgerTime before its introduction to the US. The player is chef Peter Pepper, who must walk over hamburger ingredients located across a maze of platforms while avoiding pursuing characters. The game was popular in arcades. In the US, Data East USA licensed BurgerTime for distribution by Bally Midway. The Data East and Midway versions are distinguished by the manufacturer’s name on the title screen and by the marquee and cabinet artworks. – Wkipedia, more about Burgertime.
