Dall'editore: Do you remember the difference between playing “singles” and “doubles”? Have you mastered the delicate art of hyperspace? Can you say “joystick” in polite conversation without blushing? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then “Arcade Fever” is the book for you--the world’s first illustrated tribute to Asteroids, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Q*bert, Gauntlet and many more of the mind-blowing games you played in your youth. You want to reminisce about the coolest Atari cartridges, the silliest-named arcade oddities, and the funkiest bass riff ever used in a video game? You want interviews with early arcade heroes like Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Robotron designer Eugene Jarvis and “Pac-Man Fever” composers Buckner + Garcia? You want to look at revealing pictures of Dragon’s Lair hottie Princess Daphne? It’s all in “Arcade Fever”, an infectious celebration of ’70s and ’80s arcade culture.
