Donkey Kong Coleco Tabletop Arcade - Model 2391
(Coleco - 1982)
This awesome looking mini arcade cabinet houses a neat little version of the arcade smash hit, Donkey Kong. The egg shaped joystick is easily manipulated by your left thumb and is responsive and auto centers quickly. Your right thumb or finger operates the jump button. The small multi-color VFD screen (vacuum fluorescent display) is vivid and bright, but is still big enough to show the action without feeling cramped. The cabinet is constructed of sturdy plastic.
The only shortcoming can find is that the glue that was used to adhere the stickers to the cabinet bleeds through over time, giving the decals a mottled look. It is rare to find one that has stickers in pristine condition.
The battery compartment underneath the unit is easily lost, and has a mini set of instructions adhered to it. It holds four C cell batteries or Coleco's optional Perma Power AC power adapter.
