Ace Bomber

circa 1941, made by the International Mutoscope Company

This is one of the most exciting electromechanical arcade machines ever made.

Sirens, bells, search lights, mechanical machine guns sounds,
plane whirling around, backbox animation of planes getting shot and crashing, lights flashing...lights, sound, action.

Plus a mechanical machine gun sound that is basically a pinball style "knocker"
(think of the loud knock that you hear when you win a free replay playing pinball).

That knocker fires against the front of the cabinet 300 times -- one for each shot taken -- per play. Rat-tat-tat.

Four anti-aircraft batteries shoot at a moving airplane. Hits scored by proper coordination between guns and plane,

Museum Quality restoration. Plays even better than it looks. Dimensions: 24" x 24" x 6 feet.

The Skee Ball - Over a Hundred Years Old

One of the country's most enduring games is the Skee Ball bowling game.

From the early 1900's to today, the skeeball is one of the popular games featured in amusement places. At first, the game was manually operated by an attendant. In 1936, the National Skee Ball Company introduced the coin operated skeeball. It was so popular and so well made, that even today with all our electronic and video technology, the skeeball shape and action remains virtually unchanged.

Unknown to most coin op collectors, the promoter of the coin operated skee ball was not an arcade manufacturer. Believe it or not, the machine was first promoted by the Rudolph Wurlitizer Manufacturing Co., which purchased the National Skee Ball Company in 1935. In fact, the case of the coin operated skee balls was designed by Paul Fuller, the designer of the Wurlitizer Jukebox cabinets of that time.

Just as in regular bowling, the National Skee Ball Company promoted the fact that the alley was of "regulation" size, 10 feet long. This standardization was done so players could compete at any location. What they didn't tell you, however, was that the "Hump" that elevates the ball into the air before reaching the target could be adjusted to make it easier or harder for a player to get a high score.

Want one for your home, the skee ball built of heavy red oak, weighs 450 lbs. It is 14'2" long, 6' high and 29" wide, not an item for a small game room. If you have the room, you'll be happy to know that the skee ball comes apart so it won't be as difficult to move as it looks.

Once the skee ball became so popular, many other companies began to imitate it. However, since the skee ball name was a registered trademark, no one else could use that name. However, similar sounding names were soon devised. The International Mutoscope Corporation developed a pinball size version of the skee ball game called Hurdle Hop for the small penny arcade. Even a smaller version called the Gyro was created for countertop use.
