Do you have any additional info on any other games for Cubo 32?
The only info I know about it comes from Ninjaw's CD32 page . Apparently this guy owns one.

One piece of equipment we used to have was called "Virtuosity"... a virtual reality machine.The user would strap a breadbox-sized gizmo to his ass, a cumbersome visor to his peepers, and a control stick wedged in his or her beer-soaked palm. The user would then twist and turn, and a ring on the podium would sense motion.

It was about as fun as diving into a full spitoon, and for the low, low cost of 5$ USD.

However, wedged under the platform was an Amiga 3000 (if I remember correctly, it probably was a 4000) controling all of the wonderful action in the reflected LCD screens.

That's the only true Amiga game I have seen in an arcade...
I also got a chance to play these a few times. They were based mostly on Amiga 2000's and a few A3000's

Im sure Action Fighter (a Sega game) was in Arcades, as I think I remember seeing it at some point.

HOL Database (id=3185)

As noted there, it's a coin-op port (well, the Amiga version is most likely a direct AtariST port) of the 1986 Sega System 16 game. I don't believe it's emulated by MAME at this time, but I am way behind on arcade emulation, so I could be wrong. Here's a shot from the coin-op version.

Cool

Looks easier to play than the Amiga version due to the direction of the screen (on landscape you cant see whats infront of you, so you hit everything. lol )

I think Wizkid ( http://hol.abime.net/?id=1744 ) may have been a conversion from something to Coin-op. Such a great game, just been playing it, but I didnt get enough kittens

Nope, like many system 16 arcade games, it is encrypted, sadly will not be emulated for many years.

if you are interested in system 16 emulation check this link

Just so we have the arcadia games actually listed in this thread...

Air Hockey
Blasta Bowl
Ninja Mission
Pool
180 Darts
Sidewinder
Space Ranger
Sporttime Bowling
Xenon
Aargh
Leader Board Golf
Magic Johnson's Fast Break
RoadWars
Rockford
Should point out that most, if not all, Arcadia coin-ops were released before the Amiga versions (usually by at least a couple of months). In one instance the Amiga version wasn't even the first home computer release. Incredibly, the PC port of Rockford was released before the Amiga version.

The Amiga version of Battletoads was based on a 1991 NES game by Rare.

Ive seen BlockOut from Infogrames in coinop. its a 3d tetris clone.

Also Klax were simultaneously released in home computers and coin ops by Atari and Tengen.

Of course Tetris were first a home computer game than coin op.

The coin-op was released a year before the Amiga version, which wasn't even the first home computer conversion.

It seems that far less original-release Amiga games were later converted to coin-ops than most of us thought.
