Hey all,

Arcade1Up makes budget, officially-licensed 3/4 size arcade cabinets. We have a Rampage one, and I love it.

Anyway, they announced recently that later this year they'll be releasing a Karate Champ cabinet that will also include BurgerTime, Caveman Ninja and Bad Dudes, and I'm definitely thinking that I want it.

https://arcade1up.com/products/karate-champ

I kind of wish they had styled the cabinet itself as Bad Dudes, just because that game is so goofy, but Karate Champ is better for this group, obviously. They haven't announced a price yet, but the previous ones retailed at $299, so maybe around there.

Patrick

I think the arcade cabinets are pretty cool. Growing up in the 80s and 90s, that was where it was at. I played Karate Champ a ton of times at my city rec center. No quarters needed!

The gameís controls definitely arenít easy. Two joysticks I believe instead of a single joystick and buttons. The controls frustrated us to no end. I think what couldíve been a legendary game was stifled because of the difficult controls. The basic premise and what was going on on-screen were really ahead of its time.

And itís pretty easily found for the original NES. About $5 for the cartridge. I play it every now and then. I still get aggravated Not on the NES Classic Mini though.

This unit is now up for pre-order, though the artwork has been changed to Burger Time (which I think is actually an improvement, but that's just me): https://arcade1up.com/products/burger-time-arcade-machine

I remember playing Bad Dudes in the arcade, and I loved it! Poured tons of quarters into that one! Those old co-op fighters are near and dear to my heart...

Bad Dudes is great!!!!

Gotta save Ronnie Reagan from the ninjas!!!!

I have it on an old school arcade machine I bought from Walmart on sale for $25. It has a lot of other games on it too, though it is not the stand-up arcade replica mentioned above.

Bad Dudes is a hilarious game.
