    Posted: 26 October 2017 at 2:12pm


We're running a Shmup Weekend at Konbo arcade cafe over Sat 9th & Sun 10th December! We're still confirming some of the details, but wanted to get the dates out now so people have advance warning.

Here's what we have in store so far (again, more still in the works):
  • Location test of 'Blue Revolver: Black Label'! We are delighted to be hosting a playtest of Stellar Circle Games' update of their excellent indie shmup 'Blue Revolver'. Get to grips with this re-worked edition before its official release next year. http://bluerevolvergame.com/1year/

  • Saturday evening event with entire venue (6 cabs) running shmups, plus console setups running scoring competitions for Recca (Score Attack) and DoDonPachi DaiOuJou Death Label.

  • During daytime both days, back room (3 cabs) will be dedicated to shmups, plus console setups, and more in the works...
Daytime access is free as we're open normal hours. Sat evening event will be £5 entry, but all machines will be on free-play & alcohol BYOB is welcome.

Games aren't set in stone yet, but here's our current arcade shmup collection list:

Aero Fighters 2
Blazing Star
Border Down
Detana!! Twinbee
DoDonPachi DaiOuJou
ESP Ra.De.
Explosive Breaker
G-Darius
Game Tengoku
Gunbird 2
Ketsui
Parodius Da!
Progear
Raiden
RayStorm
Strikers 1945 II
Thunder Cross II
Zero Gunner 2

More details to follow, but hopefully this is of sufficient interest to attract some shmup fans from outside Edinburgh! Smile  And if anyone has a PCB they want to bring, we're happy to change games around.

best i can do guys sorry Cry

jugemscloud and myself jumped a 2.15 train through. quick walk and a smoke and we got there in about 10 minutes. we grabbed a few tokens and had a couple of blasts on a couple of cabs down stairs. chris bynarystar and jenny arrived about a half hour later. it was decided to grab a quick beer before we got settled Big smileThumbs Up when we got back a presentation on garrega ??? had begun and we couldn't play on any of the cabs upstairs Cry so jenny, chris and mois went back to the pub LOL jugems sent a text saying he was going home and was gone by the time we got back.

at 7 o'clock all the cabs were loaded with shooters and the cave tournament began Cool 

chris managed to claim first and third until maybe 9 o'clock. it was quite busy then and some ginger haired beardy guy skelped everybodies arses LOL i told him it was my birthday and we had come through to win it and it would be shite if i didn't get it LOL 

so yeah, nice wee cafe and well set up Cool just a bit too far for us glaswegians to pop out every weekend but good luck bud Thumbs Up
