Friends, thank you for taking the time to join us once again for an episode of the Diary of An Arcade Employee podcast. On the show today we are taking a little time to check out another arcade game or home console title that are rightfully considered classics in video games. As always I attempt to share my own personal memories on the subject of the podcast, in addition to trying to shine the spotlight on those who helped to bring these classic games to the arcades and home consoles back in the day.
The subject for the show today is none other than 1982’s Mr. Do! – a title that as I point out on the show itself, I originally thought was a clone of Atari’s Dig-Dug…how wrong I was!
For more information on Mr. Do! why not give Episode 105 of the Retroist Podcast a listen?
To take a closer look at what the Japanese version of Mr. Do! looked like hop on over to the Arcade Flyer Archive!
For more interesting arcade information from the golden age you need only visit Earl Green’s Phosphor Dot Fossils site.
I also certainly hope you will share your own memories of not just Mr. Do! but your favorite arcades in the comments section. Thank you for your listening time and May the 4th Be With You!
