Robby Roto

0.07 [Nicola Salmoria, Mike Coates]


- Robby Roto (c) 1981 Bally Midway, (c) 1999 Jay Fenton, is for free non-commercial uses. Authorization from Jay Fenton <> to - Date: 5.6.1999 2:11 - Subject: Robby Roto ROM released for free non-commercial uses by author/owner. I used to write games for Bally/Midway in the 1970's and early 1980's. One of my less successful titles was Robby Roto. My contract with Midway specified that after shipments dropped below a certain level, that the rights to this game reverted to me. Needless to say, this has happened. I notice that Robby Roto is available on a few download sites for MAME. I would like the world to know that as the legal owner, the ROM images from Robby Roto are hearby declared free for unlimited non-commercial duplication and play by MAME users. Jay Fenton
