Taito Linear Power Supply (JK, Qix, ZK)

Used in many early Taito games

Original Taito linear power supply used in many of its early games such as Jungle Hunt, Jungle King, Elevator Action, Zoo Keeper, Qix and many others. This power supply is untested, but we suspect it does NOT work, as in our experience they usually need to be rebuilt.

Picture is a sample picture as sometimes we have more than one in stock. Item is complete and in comparable condition.

Zoo Keeper

Arguably Taito’s best classic game, Zookeeper features fantastic game play with a great theme. The object of the game is simple, as Zeke the Zookeeper you must keep all of the animals in the cage, which is constantly being destroyed by the animals trying to escape and rebuilt by Zeke. The game also features two additional stages one in which in Zeke must rescue his girlfriend Zelda (much like Donkey Kong) and the second in which in Zeke can receive an extra guy by jumping over animals.

Coin-Op Overview

Unlike most of Taito’s earlier games, Zookeeper’s cabinet features wonderful artwork depicting a Lion escaping from the Zoo among other things. Most of Taito’s other games (such as Qix, Jungle Hunt and Elevator Action) were manufactured in a standard “Taito” cabinet, which had the word “Taito” on each side and a rather boring design. While most Zookeeper cabinets were done in only orange and blue, some were released with color side-art.
