Many of the early classic arcade games used a vertically oriented screen (and 4 way joystick).
Space Invaders, Galaxian, PacMan, Mr Do, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Pengo, Qix, Eggor, Pheonix, ...
There were also some 8way joystick vertical games
1942, Scramble, Tutankham, Time Pilot, Xevious, Zaxxon
Our swap panel system opens up many possibilities for how to play these games with more or less authenticity:
The simplest option is to use an 8way joystick with circle restrictor to play all games.
If you want the 4way games to feel more authentic (and perform better) then you will want a diamond (pacman) or cloverleaf (donkey Kong) restrictor. This can be achieved by swapping the restrictor on the joystick, or by having another control panel.
A dedicated vertical cab like this sits nicely next to a horizontal cabinet, giving you a mini-arcade. Alternatively, our rotary screen model gives you everything in one cabinet.
