Arcade Sound Quiz (Wheels)
Part 2 in my continuing videogame sound effect quizzes.
All of these games share a common theme.
They all have protagonists which are on some sort of contraption that uses wheels.
Hopefully, the voice synthesis is a giveaway. If not, there's a picture of the game in this post (I was probably driving a little too fast).
This takes place in the location where I offered a free trip to in my previous quiz.
If you don't recognize the previous two games, you probably aren't going to recognize this one. It came out a little later than the above two. You can get a clue as to the game by the voice samples the protagonist throws out. This was an unusual "driving" game in that you used handlebars instead of a joystick or steering wheel.
I'm not sure how many people have played this game. I do remember it from the halogen days of my youth. I'm mostly including it because of the catchy tune.
This was one of my favorite games as a kid. It used a trackball. There is a Pacman sound in this game -- for some reason the Midway company thought it would be a good idea to throw that yellow freak in a couple more of their games to boost sales. This game is especially appropriate for Bubs due to his fixation on the vocation of this game's protagonist.
Post yer answers in the Comments section if you have a hankering, or just want to tell me how it would be more interesting for me to post about my busted fingernail (it's almost completely healed after falling off in late winter!).
