Memory Lane: Karate Champ

Talk about nostalgia.

I was fartin' around on the internet earlier looking at Killer Instinct cabinets for possible purchase. The wait for a new game has clearly taken its toll and despite what an excellent idea it would be for XBox to buy the rights to the game and release for play on XBox Live, it doesn't seem destined to happen. So I've been pricing cabinets. I think it'd be cool to have one.

Then I come across this.

There was an Aladdin's Castle arcade in the mall in Battle Creek, Michigan that housed this game as well. It sat directly across from Chi Chi's where my family dined nearly every Sunday after church. And even as I got older I'd still stroll over to that arcade to play this game while waiting for our food to arrive. I once made a single quarter last over what had to have been ten minutes... You know, one of those scenes where you're totally in the zone, your timing is so precise that it almost seems automatic, and before you know it there's a crowd gathering behind you watching your score reach never-before-seen levels. 20 years ago, and I remember it like yesterday.

Anyone else remember this game? It was beyond classic.

I found a cabinet for $500... Looks like Killer Instinct may have to wait.
