DESCRIPTION

[ARCADE] Arcade PCB

Pitchman © 1984 Stern Electronics, Incorporated.


Unreleased laserdisc game. Each phase of play was built around a different sideshow booth: a dart-throwing balloon board with prizes under some balloons, a pitch-the-baseball booth (hence the name) with constantly increasing numbers of bizarre moving targets, a roller coaster that tended to jump the track into different dimensions...

TRIVIA

The game was never completed. A single prototype was built with about 4 of the planned 15 or 16 booths working (and only a couple of those were completely finished).

The game was originally called "Dr. Slye's Sideshow" and later renamed Pitchman. The live-action material starred Steve Sweeney as Dr. Slye, a carny from hell.
