Erik did a livestream for Revenge of the Gator AND Nemesis. That’s two months worth of games in one. Mad props for the wild background. -RV

Wayward Yokoi Kid Ian Ferguson here to tell you all a smidge about June’s game of the month, Revenge of the Gator! RotG is a pinball game developed by HAL Laboratories in 1989. It has four screens stacked on top of each other, each with their own set of flippers and mini goals, that make up one larger overall pinball machine. If the ball drains out of the bottom screen it gets eaten by a cute little vicious alligator and you move onto the next ball. Much like good ol’ fashioned regular pinball the goal here is to rack up those points and each screen has multiple ways to accomplish this. For instance, hitting the loop on the second screen will activate a slot machine that can award bonuses. Screen three has a bunch of tiny blocks guarding exits that need to be broken by the player’s ball. One way leads to screen three while the other leads to a bonus stage for big points! (are there more bonus stages? Maaaaaaybe?!)
