Has a bit of a "Bitmap Brothers" look to it.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

How tricky this one is to answer really depends on how widespread the arcade machine was. I actually played it once here in Sydney, so I'm assuming it wasn't super-rare, but you never know.

I think my next clue might have been, 'The title sounds a bit like: Plasticine F*cking Dentures.'
