Classic Arcade Game Designs Illustrated as a Field Guide

By Jamie Condliffe on at

If your recollections of arcade games past are starting to fail you, perhaps you just need the Amusement Field Identification Kit in your life.

Illustrated in the style of a traditional field manual, these annotated images—created by Michael Mateyko and Hans Thiessen—detail the design of classic arcade games like Donkey Kong, Pong, Ms. Pac-Man, and SNK's Neo-Geo MVS. Just like they would in a car manual, details are provided which explain specs and key features, and the results are beautiful. You can, in fact, buy a set of the illustrations from Komboh's store. Prices range from $20 to $60, or £12 to £37 before shipping. [Komboh via The Verge]
