Description of game:
Old-time classic game by Midway. Made up of multiple screens per level, a couple taken from some other great Midway Licensed games (Space Invaders,Galaxian)
Different games that this cabinet plays:
This is a dedicated machine for Gorf only.
How I got it:
I purchased this game in a small bulk deal in March 2003. The deal came with Gorf, Super Breakout, a bootleg Donkey Kong Jr. cabaret, a unknown poker cabaret, and a Joker Poker converted from a Missile Command. This was the game of the deal that I wanted. Ended up getting rid of every game from this buy except one of the poker cabinets, which became my miniMAME.
Once I got it home I spent a long while cleaning it up. Tested it out and the PCB was not working (what else is new with Gorf machines?). Sent it to Commander Dave for repair. He checked it out and swapped out the pattern board and repaired the CPU board for me. This was all done for a fantastic price. I highly recommend him for anyone who owns a Gorf. He can be found roaming the RGVAC boards in Usenet.
To finish it up, I replaced all the bulbs in it. I also put on a different control panel that did not have all the graphics worn off of it (the only panel I’ve ever seen with all the graphics!). Finally replaced the RGB PCB to get a better picture.
What it still needed when I sold it:
Could use some new graphics to freshen it up. Other than that it works great.
Who has it now:
Ted Davitian from West Virginia.
I used to play this game all the time as a kid! I love how it is actually five distinct games wrapped into one. Probably would have kept it if I didn’t have space limitations
