Dig Dug

This is the Namco version of Dig Dug, released in 1982. It uses the same pin-out as Galaga. Still waiting for a JAMMA converter so I can take the game for a spin.

Arcana Heart / Arcana Heart FULL! 「アルカナハート」

Arcana Heart was first released in 2006 by Yuki Enterprise. Later in 2007 after Examu had acquired Yuki a patch called Arcana Heart FULL! was released adding more characters to the roster.

Arcana Heart FULL! PCB

Arcana Heart equipped with the FULL! upgrade and the original version to the left. The pin-out on the PCB is JAMMA but video out is only by VGA. As far as I know this is the only PCB based game with this combo.
