Here are a couple of items to discuss briefly as they have been announced as being available to grab from a distributor.
Pink Panther Jewel Heist – Seen on location test a while back, ICE Games and Play Mechanix have teamed up again to produce a new license based upon the Pink Panther cartoons. The videmption game is shipping now although I have not heard what the price is. It is a joystick game though which is still somewhat rare from the major manufacturers.
Dolphin Star – Also along the lines of videmption, although this fits more into an interactive kiddie ride is a new piece imported to the West by Barron Games. Dolphin Star is also available now for locations where they want something that appeals to kids with a motion base. This is taking the place of the Go Go Pony interactive kiddie ride that the company had showed off at IAAPA 2014:
I have added both games to our Arcade Releases for 2015 page under the videmption category. I was tipped off to another videmption development that is on test but with so few details (the manufacturer has no comment on it for now, too early as a test) it is better to wait…it will likely be at IAAPA though.
What are your thoughts on these new developments?
