About Side Arms arcade game for hire

Manufactured by CAPCOM in 1986

Side Arms - Hyper Dyne was produced by Capcom in 1986.

You have the ability to hold and select between five different weapons at a time. Each weapon can be powered-up a couple of times by collecting a similar option. When you lose a life, you don't lose all of your weapons, just the one you are using when hit.

There is a unique power-up that joins both players together as one or brings in the second player on a single player game. When joined, BOTH controllers allow you to move the single, joined character! This can cause problems, however, if you each want to go different directions. During the attract sequences, when the players are joined, you can even move the character around without having to add any credits.

Here's an example of what Side Arms looks like

You can't currently hire this game but you can go and play it at The Lost Arcade in Bristol until around 22nd March 2020. more info here

Cabinet image shown may not be the same as the one you would hire

We make every effort to own games in their most known original format, CAPCOM made different versions depending on where in the world it was produced.

In this case, the picture of the Side Arms machine shown is one of many variants of the cabinet, the game delivered may look different but will have the correct game. We have used a stock photo to keep the visual theme of our website consistent.

What does 'van spaces' mean?

For any hire upto 10-12 games we use our own transport, there are size and weight restrictions of how much we can legally put on to bring to you. Games like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and many others from that era we discovered are all roughly the same size so we call them a 'standard size' game - we can put 12 of these standard sized games on one of the vans we use. We have some bigger games like SEGA Rally Championship Two Player which each half takes up the space of 2 standard sized games and with two halves to play together it takes 4 in total so we calculate how many standard sized machines a game like that takes up - that's what van spaces are.

When you ask us for a quote, we will always quote based on standard sized games, if you'd like specific larger games, please mention this in your enquiry.
