Burger Time © 1982 Bally Midway Mfg. Co.
Stand-alone version by Bally/Midway for the USA. Game originally developed by Data East for the DECO Cassette System and known as "Hamburger [Model DT-126]" in Japan. For more information about the game itself, please see the original Japanese version entry.
[Upright model] [No. 333]
Burger Time was released in November 1982 in the USA by Bally/Midway, under license from Data East.
Both this stand-alone version and the revised cassette version ("Burger Time [Model DT-126]") have been known to appear in the United States. The only way to visually differentiate between the two are by the different cabinet designs and artworks.
This stand-alone version plays identical to the later revision of the cassette version. The only electronic differences are :
* Now that the original cassette format has been dropped entirely, the 2-minute load time when the game is powered on has been eliminated.
* 'MFGD BY BALLY MIDWAY MFG. CO.' has been added to the copyright information on the title screen.
* When entering initials, the selected letter now turns invisible as the chef carries it to the front of the player's score. The letter reappears as soon as it reaches its destination and the chef returns to the grid.
NOTE: Only ports released in North America are listed here. For ports released outside North America and Japan, please see the Data East stand-alone version entry. For Japanese releases, please see the original Japanese release entry, "Hamburger [Model DT-126]".
