I always thought Jungle Trouble was a decent game but made slightly frustrating by the fact you had to keep going back to the start to pick up a new axe, I think I only ever got past the tree's on a couple of occasions.

Hard Drivin is unplayable beyond belief. After recently playing it on Midway Treasures 2 the lack of control over your car becomes evident and totaly spoils the game. It's like you are driving on a frozen lake.

Also, Paperboy in the Arcade had all the enjoyment of a large boil on the backside with the crappy handle bar steering and AWFUL ismoretic view. Unplayable crap!!!!! :evil:
Bring back Thingy and Rockford!!! Zzap 64 liberation front!!! :):):)

I really agree, even the sit down cab with the moving seat didn't help it, Race Drivin' is as bad

Hard Drivin' at the arcade was pretty good I always thought.
