Disco No. 1 Disco No. 1 - Japanese Logo - Katakana / Kanji

Disco No. 1 - Cabinet - Video Game Marquee

Description

You play a 90 pound weakling kid in a roller rink who has to skate around the bad guys in order to win the love admiration of cute chicks. Earn points by completely encircling one or more tough guys and picking up various bonus items that float across the rink. Nice music and decent graphics for 1982. Interesting gameplay mechanics, but ultimately too hard to understand the basic premise of the game.

Miscellaneous

The title apparently means "Number 1 dancer in the disco." It's probably just a sloppy translation of ichiban which means "number one" in Japanese.
