Re: Flyer Fever Update *edit*

Another great update. This update is in top ten flyer updates imo.

3D Bowling / Inferno (1978) - Meadows Games

Very odd that this flyer is ledger size compared to regular N. American region flyers. Cab photos [such as Inferno] included makes this flyer find worthwhile.

>Elepong (1973) - Taito [Japanese text]

Another wanted flyer off your list.

>Grand Champion (1981) - Taito [Japanese text]

The 'Taito Japan' source list section on TAFA web site doesn't have this you beat 'Taito Japan' with this entry.

Secret Base (1978) - Sega [Japanese text]

Interesting thing with Japanese region flyer of this game versus the N. American region flyer is the Japanese region flyer appears to have been a better quality production. The interior cab photo is more readily visible compared to N. American region flyer version.
With the N. American region flyer, one has to guess is it a video game or could it be a mechanical game. With the better photo on the Japanese flyer, the Japanese flyer clearly shows it is a video game.

Sparkling Corner (1976) - Sega [English text]

This flyer is what makes this update in top ten imo. I had some past doubts if this was an actual video game, but it clearly is a video game. This would have been great if someone were able to get actual video gameplay and have it posted. I was guessing that this would be similar to the electromechanical game Atari F-1 or Chicago Coins car racing game where car and track components are backlit illuminated and projected on to a screen where the player can watch the various backlit objects on to a projection screen.

I still wonder how the items appear on the monitor of Sega Sparkling Corner because some might be overlay artwork elements placed on to videoscreen monitor even though flyer reads color tv. The flyer shows monitor contents, but I still have doubts of how much is video element that appears on monitor. If anyone can find actual video of Sega Sparkling Corner cab still working, that would be a great video clip find imo.

Taito Video Games Catalog (1973-1976) [Japanese text; shows licensed games from Atari, Electra Games, Meadows Games and Midway Mfg.]

And another Taito catalog which is the added topping of what makes this flyer update really worthwhile to look over.
