This week marks the 100th unique game we've played on WALL-O-VISION, our custom projected arcade system. We've played a ton of classics and a nice collection of obscure curiosities, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

To mark the occasion, we're now playing a tragically unheralded gem. Sega's 1998 title Spikeout: Digital Battle Online is a 3D beat-'em-up game. Deceptively deep fighting mechanics allow players to use button combinations and charges to perform a wide variety of attacks, each with specific crowd-control applications.

This one holds a special place in our hearts, and this just might be the only place in the tri-state area you can play it right now.

Captain America and the Avengers

Data East's 1991 title Captain America and the Avengers is a side scrolling beat-em-up game based on the Marvel Comics properties of the same name. Players choose from one of four characters, including Captain America, Iron Man, Vision, and Hawkeye. The simple two-button gameplay is surprisingly deep: players can launch a projectile by pressing both buttons at once, and can dash by double-tapping the joystick.
