Game Introduction

This game was relased shortly after the dedicated Quartet. Quartet 2 is not a sequel but rather a conversion kit that could be placed in two-player cabinets. The only real difference between the two game is Quartet 2 allows up to two players to choose from the four available characters.

The game has side-scrolling action and a Gauntlet-like join-in type play. The four characters each have a different name and wear a different color. They are Joe (yellow), Mary (red), Lee (blue) and Edgar (green).

Sun Corporation only made a handful of games besides this title. Their parent company, Sun Electronics (who later changed their name to Sun Corporation of Japan), made games like Arabian and Kangaroo. In 1989, Sun Corporation of America changed its name to SunSoft and then left the arcade game market to concentrate on creating software titles for home console systems like the Nintendo 64.

Cabinet Information

This game was only released as a conversion kit for two-player cabinets. Sometime during production, Sun Corporation of America changed the colors of the kit, so there are two different color marquees for Quartet 2 (one blue and one turquoise).


This game can be back converted to Quartet by swapping ROM boards. This conversion will require a Quartet wiring harness, however, since the ROM boards determine the game board's control pinouts. Additionally, both Quartet and Quartet 2 can be converted to or from Body Slam, by replacing the ROM board, and several ROMs on the main board.

The Quartet and Quartet 2 control pinouts differ due to the varience in the number of simultaneous players between games. The wiring for Quartet is set up so that each player is required to use a specific set of joysticks and buttons, while Quartet 2 allows both players to select whatever characters they would like to play during the game.
