Looks like a Phoenix clone to me (look on the left hand instruction decal)

The control panel would match that game, too - left/right/shoot/barrier.

Get us a better picture of both sides of the board. It looks like a Taito board from that glimpse, but 'MR' on the eproms looks like it might not be Phoenix.

The cab looks like a generic jamma cab of some kind.

*Edit* I didn't realise the giant alien head was part of it! Not sure at all now...
*Edit* A good look at the instruction decals on the front would also help...

I would have said it was a clone until I saw that flyer, nice find mate, pretty rare I should think. Board looks geniune also. That topper is super cool.

Looks like it was a cab that could house various games, bit like an early Jamma but specifically for Taito pin out space shooters, I reckon the kit was a pcb and some instruction decals. Loving that alien head!!

very unusual, love it. You are in an arcade, and you don't know which game to play next. The giant alien eyes tell you which.

Would be great to get it working, probably won't take much pcb could be repaired in the right hands, monitor can be fixed and power supply can be rebuilt. Good luck with it, if you ever want to part with it, give me a shout.

I didn't realise it was a legit Taito - what a great machine!

Getting a Phoenix board shouldn't be hard. Expect to find a bootleg though, most are - but play exactly the same as an original. You can get Taito branded Phoenix boards but they are harder to find.

Good luck with getting those bug eyes to light up, they're going to look awesome!!!

im so pleased i shared this with you guys.im pleased you like it.iv been looking on eBay for a phoenix board but no luck so far,is there any where else i could try.and another question is.would you restore.....or would you keep it original.it has soaked up water on one side which has rotted the wood badly,but I'm in the middle of hopefully repairing it.

If the aliens ever descend on the earth and they come round your house, they will think you are some kind of god.
