Numskull Designs Unveils Quarter-Scale Arcades for Elevator Action & Zoo Keeper

In an era where nostalgia reigns supreme, Numskull Designs has once again struck gold with its latest additions to the Quarter Arcades lineup – the iconic ‘Elevator Action’ and ‘Zoo Keeper.’ These classic games are enshrined in the annals of arcade history and have found new life in the Quarter Arcades collection, offering fans of old-school gaming a chance to revive the golden age of arcades right in their living rooms.

Elevating the Retro Gaming Experience

‘Elevator Action’ was a groundbreaking release by Taito in 1983, capturing the hearts and minds of millions with its spy-themed, side-scrolling gameplay. Players stepped into the shoes of ‘Agent 17,’ maneuvering through various levels, assembling secret documents, and dispatching foes in the most stylish way possible – via elevator. The Quarter Arcades edition of ‘Elevator Action’ flawlessly captures the original arcade machine in perfect miniature, allowing fans to relive the strategic thrill of the game’s iconic elevator mechanics.

The Quarter Arcades version of ‘Elevator Action’ is meticulously crafted, measuring just under 17 inches tall and featuring a crystal-clear color screen alongside authentic controls. The attention to detail is impressive, down to the coin slots and the coin collector mechanism – a nod to the game’s quarter-guzzling past.

Keeping the Zookeeper Legacy Alive

‘Zoo Keeper’ was another Taito hit, released in 1982, that tasked players with maintaining order in an increasingly chaotic zoo setting. With its unique arcade enclosure that depicted an animal pen, ‘Zoo Keeper’ stood out visually and in its gameplay mechanics. The Quarter Arcades edition is no less striking, with its bold, nostalgic design sure to bring a smile to any fan of the original.

Just like ‘Elevator Action’, ‘Zoo Keeper’ has been masterfully recreated in every aspect. With its customized, aqua-blue deck protector and controller placement that mimics the zoo’s animal housing, this miniature iteration is as much a collector’s item as it is a functioning game. The zeal and precision with which Numskull Designs has preserved the essence of these games in their Quarter Arcades are a testament to the company’s commitment to preserving gaming history.

Classic Arcade Charm Meets Modern Elegance

Numskull Designs’ Quarter Arcades range is a celebration of the charm of classic arcade gaming, made fit for contemporary connoisseurs. The company has not only managed to encapsulate the essence of ‘Elevator Action’ and ‘Zoo Keeper’ in these miniaturized versions but has done so with a sense of care and finesse that will undoubtedly appeal to the game’s long-standing dedicated followers.

These new additions are not only a treat for the eyes of arcade aficionados but also a heartwarming reminder of the joy that gaming has brought to millions over the years. Here’s to the players, the developers, and the unforgettable games that continue to shape the way we all play.
