Arcade Game: Journey (1983 Midway)
1st PLANET – Microphone : Steve Perry must pass between the turnstiles without touching them, get his microphone, and shoot his way back to the Scarab. The background song for this scene is ‘Don’t Stop Believing’.
2nd PLANET – Bass : Here, Ross Valory must leap onto the elevating pedestals, timing his assent to grab his bass as it passes by him at the top of the screen, and shoot his way back to the Scarab. The song played in the background here is ‘Keep On Running’.
3rd PLANET – Keyboard : Here, Jonathan Cain must leap the moving conveyor belt ridges without being touched to reach his keyboard and then must shoot his way back to the Scarab. The background song here is ‘Stone in Love’.
4th PLANET – Guitar : With his jet pack, Neal Schon must traverse the dangerous passages in this cavern to finally retrieve his guitar and then fight his way back to the Scarab. ‘Chain Reaction’ plays in the background here.
5th PLANET – Drums : Steve Smith must jump from drum-head to drum-head, landing on all of them at least once in order to reach his drums. He then must shoot his way back to the Scarab. ‘Wheel in the Sky’ is the background song here.
This was the world’s first commercial video game to have graphics using photographs of people known as digitized sprites. The band members’ pictures were taken by Ralph Baer (a father of home video game console who released magnovoxx odyssey, the world’s first game console).
Journey, the arcade game is not nearly as good as other arcade game with musicians such as Aerosmith’s Revolution X or Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker. I prefer to play those arcade games than this.
