Shack's Arcade Corner: Radar Scope

This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we take a look at the1980 space shooter Radar Scope. Produced and developed by Nintendo, the cabinet drew a lot of comparisons to Galaxian, but the graphics and gameplay definitely were unique. Players had a damage meter as opposed to the one shot deaths of Galaxian and Galaga. Radar Scope was the first game that Super Mario Bros. creator helped develop for Nintendo. The arcade cabinet was successful in Japan, but didn't meet Nintendo's expectations in the United States. Luckily, the cabinets were easily convertible to Donkey Kong and the rest is video game history. Please take a look at this video to find out more about Radar Scope.
