USPS Shipping Updates (9/1/21)

Please note that the US Post Office is doing much better with delivery times these days although we recommend using UPS if you have any concerns about transit times. 

Also we are no longer shipping to some countries (Spain, Greece, Italy to name a few).  We have had too many issues with packages not arriving.

Arkanoid Spinner

Original Taito Arkanoid Spinner

Original, Taito Arkanoid arcade game spinner controller.  This one is complete, it spins as it should, it is a little noisy, but appears to be mechanically sound.  We have not tested the optic board, so we're selling it as-is.  It has some typical wear, but overall in good used condition and should restore nicely. We did notice a crack on the encoder board it is still intact and suspect still usable.

Year 1986
Genre Ball and Paddle
Related Game Title Arkanoid
Quick Game Facts

Probably considered the next great version of "Breakout" Arkanoid became a fun hit. Even today people like having an Arkanoid game in the home or game room.

Coin-Op Overview

Using a spinner, you move your paddle to reflect the ball towards the bricks. Some bricks take a few hits to break apart, and occasionally a special reward is dropped. These can include expanding your paddle, laser beams, or the ability to catch the ball. The ball can also break into three balls to help you break through the level faster.
