(Looks like your not so typical maze game right?  Check the next picture to see how wrong you are.)

I'm Sorry
This has nothing to do with the Brenda Lee song, rather it is a very odd game from Japan and I do mean weird.  At first glance, it appears like your typical Pacman maze clone and in some ways it is.  You have to go around and collect the gold bricks and avoid bad guys who look to be guards.  But that is about all it has in common with Pacman.  Instead of a cute character like Pacman, you get a fat, goofy looking guy.  Take a look at this guy, who couldn't win a beauty contest if he was the only contestant.

While looks are not his strong suit, he does have some hard fists.  He can punch out people and break steel fences.  Plus, he jumps like a kangaroo!  While nature whacked him with an ugly stick, it also made him pretty tough.  Being tough is good as he has a bunch of people coming between him and the gold.  Besides the guards, with their cool shades, there is a crazy barrel that rolls after you with a vengeance.  Plus, there are the steel gates that need to be pounded repeatedly to fall down.

(Picture blown up, so you can see the depravity)

While the game is pretty typical in every other aspect, there is one area that is so ridiculous that it sets this game apart.  Whenever one of the guards captures you, the characters switch from the typical ones to one of your character getting whipped by one of the guards, who changes into an outfit that would be all the rage at the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  At the same time, you are wearing nothing but your underwear and crying like a baby.  I was stunned the first time I saw this, as I would guess most arcade goers were also.  This may explain why I never heard of this game.

Anyways, it is a fun game.  Not the kind of game that I would pump money into, but for a good laugh, it cannot be beat (no pun intended).  Just another odd game that made its way into the market. 

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
