It is the classic maze game of the early ’80s. You control an “eye” that runs through the maze collecting green balls. In the labyrinth various enemies walk, obviously trying to kill you. In order to make the game easier, the eye can “shoot” in front of itself, getting free its passage.

The original game was produced by Rock-Ola but this is the marvelous licensed version produced by Zaccaria. It is said that the front glass that brings a frowning look, draws the eyes of the designer and that this is the second version, because the first instilled fear to the children. The restoration of this cabinet has been long and tiring because the game was in very bad condition and it was rebuilt as much as possible with original parts. Overall, the cabined is in good condition, the CPO has been reproduced while the (original) side art is rather damaged. Better a discrete original game than a beautiful reproduction, doesn’t it?

The most dirty cab I’ve ever seen

I destroyed the original metal label removing it from the back of the cab. I’m sorry.
