I've noticed when playng what I like to call Rom Roulette on MAME (basically scroling through the rom list with my eyes closed, stopping at a random point and playing the highlighted game!) that there are dozens of games I've never heard of, but which are quite brilliant. Swimmer is one of them, New York, New York is another, and Jungle King is yet another!

 

I was wondering what other hidden gems NZGamers might have found? 

 

I've included a link to my Jungle KIng video for reference, but feel free to ignore - it's full of my usual silliness. Bobbety:-)

Yeah, that's the one. Also, random 80's arcade game that's worth mentioning is Vendetta. Just for the leather bound bosses that hump lamp posts alone.

What  about this one - Swimmer? It's a great little vertical scroller - avoid obstacles, avoid enemies...collect fruit. they don't make them like this anymore!
