Prop Cycle (Rev. PR2 Ver.A)


Prop Cycle (c) 1996 Namco.


A strange game where you control a pedal powered plane to pop as many balloons as you can within a time limit. Because of its unique gameplay, this game gives a totally different and nice gaming experience.

- TRIVIA -


This game had you controlling the plane using an exercise bike and pedalling to keep yourself flying while steering with the handle bars. You could only play once or twice before you got exhausted! :). Also, the Prop Cycle cabinet featured a fan to simulate flight.


A Prop Cycle machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.
