Arcade games 

VANGUARD

2 versions exist.  The original shows a SNK copyright (picture #1) while the other shows copyrights by both SNK and Centuri (picture #2).

When you enter a Rainbow zone, all the Helms and Amnos will initially be bunched up in the upper-right corner (picture #3) making them especially vulnerable.

Sometimes an orange bar will appear in the upper-right corner (picture #4), the meaning of which is unknown (the manual makes no mention of it).  

You can only earn 2 extra ships (for a maximum of 7) Ė one at 10k and the other at 50k.  This isnít mentioned in the manual.

If you destroy the Gond at the same time youíre hit (picture #8), you still get docked a ship when the next tunnel starts.

BUG: Collision-detection is only done with the pink center of your ship (pictures #5 and #7).

BUG: When you reach the 10th tunnel (or higher), the round # disappears (picture #6). According to the manual, there are only 12 tunnels, but the game doesnít stop after the 12th.  {Scott Stilphen}

BUG: In the Dock zone, if you move your ship high enough that you touch the Gondís top beam, a small hole will open in the wall to your left (picture #7).  {Scott Stilphen}

BUG: Bonus points for hitting the Gond depend on how many beams below you are completely on.  O beams = 1,000 points, 1 = 2,000, and 3 = 8,000 (the maximum).  However, if you wait until the 4th or 5th beam, the bonus is only 1,000 (picture #7 and #8)!  {Scott Stilphen}
