The Penny Arcade is my first arcade cabinet with a traditional arcadish look.

This is a budget arcade cabinet. Instead of a computer running the MAME software, the gaming is provided by a Namco TV Games 5-in-1 game controller, hacked for real arcade controls. So, instead of spending a few hundred on a computer, the controller is $20. Also, inside is a 14" TV, saving money there too.

The Penny Arcade plays Pacman, Galaxian, RallyX, DigDug, and Bosconian.

It is a simple build. The case took only a few hours to make. The electronics do require some soldering, but the circuit boards were designed for soldering wires and it went very well.
