New Spongebob Pineapple, Dolphin Star & Pink Panther Arcade Machines Released
Following the AAMA Gala, a number of manufacturers have released new arcade machine titles including Andamiro with SpongeBob Pineapple and Golden Empire; Barron Games with Foosball World Tour, Dolphin Star, and Bathtime Duckie; and ICE/Play Mechanix with Pin Panther: Jewel Heist.
Andamiro USA debuted its new SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade machine, a card pusher game, at the recent American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA) Gala.
"The response to the game was really fantastic. This was the first time that distributors and (family entertainment center) operators had a chance to see and play the game in person," said Drew Maniscalco, Vice President of Andamiro.
"The reaction of our customers to the game was very rewarding. Orders received at the Gala have put us in a backorder situation. All new orders will now be shipped in early November." For more information, visit www.andamiro.com.

Barron says its new Foosball World Tour table (also shown at this summer's Bowl Expo) is expected to be a hit with Family Entertainment Centres, as well as home users. The table features running LED lights and scoreboard, a fully-enclosed playfield with electronic ball release and the option to fully customize graphics.
The company has also released the highly anticipated Dolphin Star, which is an interactive video and motion game for kids, taking young riders on an undersea adventure to collect points by learning words. The machine is ticket redemption compatible and the company says this game is "taking edu-tainment up a notch". For more information, you can visit http://barrongames.com/.
