I sort of have one - a Subelectro Isis running a Mylstar fgpa board with custom marquee, bezel and control panel overlay.

Mine also has the knocker.

I’m good for about 40k (rubbish) But still love the game!

I only ever played it on my Atari 800 bitd but really loved it.  The arcade version is much better but I didn't know it back then!

Quality game and gorgeous cab.

I think it just squeezes into my top 10 that I would like to own.

All my memories of it are of playing the home versions. I don't have a strong memory of ever seeing it in the Arcade... But it must have been there, just not one that I gravitated towards bitd.

I have one.

I got mine from Archer Maclean in an unknown state.  Took me a while to fix it, as it had quite a lot wrong with it unfortunately

I have since replaced the control panel artwork and powder coated all the metal work

Not sure if I have a picture anywhere

EDIT - Only have a picture when I changed the control panel artwork

I played one as a kid in one of my home town arcades, though I don't recall whether it was the cab with all the artwork on, perhaps it was just a generic woodgrain type cab.

I played a clone version called Pogo far more though on the Spectrum 48K. Fantastic game as I recall - though I haven't played it for well over 30 years now.

We had a cab in the arcade I worked in back in '82.
I was one of only a small number of people who played more than the odd game or two and it was moved out fairly quickly due to lack of takings, Naughty Boy was the only game that went out quicker.
I did manage to get reasonably good at it but I found the missing extra lives bug/feature annoying.
