Keeping an eye on the coin-op gaming scene
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.
