Bally Midway Cocktail 1st Player Control Panel (Converted)

Converted panel with original joystick and useful parts

Original Bally Midway Ms. Pac-man cocktail style 1st player side control panel in used condition. Listing includes the metal panel, original Pac-Man style joystick and button, wiring, woodgrain side panels, and metal brackets. This one is in fairly good shape aside from the one wood panel which is a bit smooshed at the t-molding groove (see pics).  The joystick moves as it should and should restore nicely. The metal panel does have some extra holes installed, but could be restored. This style panel was used in many other Bally Midway cocktails as well from the early 80s.

See pictures for more details on its condition.

Quick Game Facts

At the time Gorf was released most vertical shooter games (such as Galaxian or Space Invaders), usually only had one level that was repeated for the entire game. Gorf was a bit different, the game features five different missions, including a Space Invaders like mission, a Laser Attack mission, a Galaxian mission, a Space Warp mission and the Flag ship mission. After defeating all five missions players are promoted in rank from Space Cadet up through Space Avenger.

Gorf was one of the first games to feature digitized speech. In the game the player is taunted by the Gorfian leader, with phrases such as, “You cannot defeat my Gorfian empire”. Another unique feature of the game is the wonderful backlighting. In addition the game marquee, the header above the monitor and the one below the control are backlit.
