***** by freakzilla. Comment: "PURE CLASSIC. One of the best "unknown" games of the golden age. I used to plunk a single quarter in this game and play as long as I wanted...and then hand it over to a little kid who was usually watching the matches...that was always the cool thing to do! ah, those were the days. :)" 2003-02-22 16:35:00Z
