Pac-man - Text Style

This is fantastic, pac-man played as a text adventure. Gotta love the 'e' to eat that you have to manually perform otherwise you miss the dots. Sheer class!

Cocktail Cabinet Update

I've started assembling the control panel today. I've completed the basic framework and installed the buttons, unfortunately I've made a mistake with the P2 Start button and I can't fit it where I'd originally planned as it's blockedby the P2 joystick, so I have to cut a new front section and re-drill it. That problem aside the controls look and feel great.

Treasure Hunt

I've not blogged much about finds recently, mainly because there haven't been any. I guess everyone was deciding what to do with their odds and ends after the Christmas period, and this week I've picked up some good stuff:

Fully boxed, with Blinx the Time Sweeper, for £20.00

Robocop 3
All complete with manual and inners.

£2 each

Game Cube
Defender, for £3

Cocktail Cabinet Update

I've received all the control parts from the nice people at Gremlin Solutions today. Can't wait to crack on with the soldering :)

I'd love to order some of their arcade cabs too, they look soooo nice, alas the money they want is out of my league. And I'd have to explain to Jane where we're going to put them, because just one would look stupid wouldn't it?
