YES on ALL! :)

I'm old. I remember playing this one in the arcades when it first came out. Then again I remember playing Sega's EM arcade hit Periscope back in the late 60s. If you've never played it it's very simular to the arcade game series Sea Wolf.

Yeah, I remember seeing it when I was a kid but don't remember if I played it.

Thanks for the votes Mark :)

My pleasure. You're either close to my age or you went to some arcades as a kid that kept games a long time. Periscope was a big hit. Big enough in fact to entice Gulf & Western, Paramount's parent company, to buy Sega. Gulf & Western had only owned Paramount for a short period of time when they bought both Sega and Desilu (formerly known as RKO Radio Pictures). It made sense as both studios were right next to each other, so they knocked down some walls and renamed Paramount Paramount Studios. Mel Brooks made fun of Gulf & Western in his film "Silent Movie." The plot has a company called Engulf & Devour buying up studios that were on hard times.

I think they sold Sega in the early 80s.

@Mark: I don't think my age is far away from yours mark. We certainly have a lot of the same interests. I used to go to several arcades that kept their machines a very long time. Almost retro gaming when gaming was barely old enough to have a retro department so to speak. A couple of those arcades still exist but the machines have all gone unfortunately. You definitely know a lot about gaining and movie history mark. Thanks for the info. Always nice to learn new things :)
