AR­CADE WATCH

Keep­ing an eye on the coin-op gam­ing scene

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE TALK/ARCADE -

Ahead of Juras­sic World’s re­lease, Raw Thrills is dig­ging up the preda­tory stars of the ear­lier films for Juras­sic Park Ar­cade. The game sees you re­turn to Isla Nublar, find­ing it over­run and in chaos. Play­ers use mounted, rather than teth­ered, light­guns, but there are five in-game weapons avail­able, in­clud­ing the de­scrip­tively named Shock­bolt, cold-spew­ing Frost­bite Can­non and a Ti­tan 2000 mini­gun, which fires glow­ing green-tinged tran­quil­liser darts. The game fea­tures nine stages split evenly across three dif­fi­culty tiers: Tricer­atops, T-Rex and Spinosaurus (each of which serves as a boss).

The cabi­net comes in two flavours: En­vi­ron­men­tal Sit­down and Mo­tion Deluxe. The lat­ter fea­tures ‘Thrill-D’ tech­nol­ogy, a sys­tem that uses pneu­mat­ics to power industrial air springs. The de­sign, Raw Thrills prom­ises, is con­sid­er­ably more re­li­able than more com­monly used elec­tri­cal mo­tors and trans­mis­sions, which means lower main­te­nance costs. But play­ers ben­e­fit, too: mo­tion is smoother as a re­sult of re­duced com­po­nent fric­tion. The rocking seat is com­ple­mented by a more stan­dard 55-inch HD LED screen and pow­er­ful sur­round sound sys­tem, also present in the Sit­down cab. Juras­sic Park Ar­cade is out now in both for­mats.
