Unfortunately I was unable to try any of those games, but I did some research (reading, watching pictures and videos) and these are the best games released on Arcade Coin-Op Machines in 1976.
Breakout – developed and published by Atari.
Road Race (released also as Moto-Cross, Man T.T., Fonz) – developed and published by Sega. Is a racing video game that introduces pseudo-3D, forward scrolling and third-person graphics.
Death Race – released by Exidy. Is a controversial video game that got banned in many areas because of the violence! Based on film “Death Race 2000”.
Heavyweight Champ – released by Sega. Is the first video game to feature hand-to-hand fighting.
Night Driver – released by Atari. First person perspective racing game in the dark.
Speed Race Twin – released by Taito.
Please contact me, if you know how could I try any of these games (emulation, online) or if you know some games that should be listed here as the best or the most important games of that year! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In my next post I will start with year 1977. See you in my next post!
