You are looking at a 1920's '' mid 20's '' I think, mechanical arcade game, where these where at sea side fun parlours, piers, and amusement parks. The case is typical mid 20's, as I collect / restore old gramophones and valve radios. Rexonla , a gramophone company had their cases made in Sydney , where to my opinion is typical of their cabinet. The machine , operates, similiar to the gramophone motor , being spring driven , and for amusement , has been goverened, where another coin has to be deposited. Which is a Three Pence , just for your info. The Threepence back then was Stirling silver , and the collection tin , takes a area space up of basically , a typical house brick. With the price of silver today , just imagine a House brick weight , being Sterling Silver, and the value today. The cabinet as you can see ,is green , and there are a lot more colours under the green. I have asked the question, where back in the 20's , Shellac was mainly used for cabinets, but however, being in fun parlours , piers , side shows , colour was always brighter. I found this machine , where just the metal work , 15 hours was spent just on buffing , the motor worked , but need cleaning , and relubeing. The crank handle , had a cutch type spring , and was badly rusted and sezied , where it was pulled apart, rust removed , reoiled , and refitted. The motor is very basic , with the mechanics as well. The machine is very set up for commercial use , as the parts , service window , large colection tin " Threepance's " brass protection strips around the cabinet , painted cabinet , instead of Shellac , where the owner could just simply paint over any Graffite, than getting the cabinet sanded , then another coat of Shellac. The Black and white photos , seem to be original , where the previous owner , it appears hasnt been anything done to it for quite somtime. any way , thanks for looking, and If you have any knowledge , re what you have seen , I would like to hear from you. Cheers Pete , Australia
CloverIOSGames today announces Snake Color Hunter 1.0 for iOS, their color matching, touch arcade Game. The pick up and play game simulates the slow, serpentine movement of a snake. One by one, colored balls move from the snake's tail to its head. Players fire colored balls at the procession, and matching two or more balls of the same color removes them. Balls fired may miss the snake or join the single-file, curving line of balls on their way toward the head, ending the game when they reach it.
