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.

Rainbow Islands

Taito's 1987 title Rainbow Islands is the second arcade game in the popular Bubble Bobble series. It stars Bubby and Bobby, the dragon protagonists of the first game, in their human forms. Players create rainbows which function as both an attack and a platform creation tool, climbing to the top of a series of vertical stages.
