Cabinet Information

This game had great cabinet artwork, a white base, with purple, yellow and black overlaid artwork. It shows a horned demon and lots of swirls. Most interestingly, this has to be the only game to have a politically incorrect slogan plastered on the side -- "SUPER VIOLENCE!" The artwork on the sides and front was varnished or laquered, which gives it a shiny and incredibly strong coat, protecting it from scratches and any kind of fading! The control panel had backlit one- and two-player info panels. Insert one coin, "1 player" lit up insert two and "2 player" lit up. This looks real nice on the brushed chrome control panel.
