Oh, after like over one month of having this game it is finally time to make a thread on SURF PLANET!!!
This is a 1997 ATARI - standing cabinet (Jeff, what is it called when they didn't actually manufacture the cabinets, but it's one that's meant to be put into an existing cabinet? a fake arcade game? a build-your-own? an assemble-your-own? a cheap-o?)
This game pretty much replaced Crossbow, it's definitely not that popular but I still hear it's songs going off all of the time because that's what it does when it's not being played. And really it's soundtrack is PRETTY GOOD, it hasn't even gotten old yet and I want to hear more of those bands. We'll dive into what bands exactly are being played in this game later.
There are 3 levels on this game you can play. We'll also dive into more info on that later, how does that sound underground pinball club.
current high score holder on: FOO FIGHTERS, Mousin' Around, Judge Dredd

I did finally turn off the attract music as I can't hear the machines that I'm working on when I'm in repairing stuff and that was bothering me. Still the music is probably the best part on this game. There are 2 band featured in the game with 2 songs from each and I like how it displays the record label and everything for these bands. They were legit real 90s bands from Spain and everything.
Technically this game replaced Daytona as I was looking for something cheap to replace daytona that unexpectedly broke down and was removed, and this game is basically a racing game.
This would be called a Kit game. In order to save money, operators bought kit games back in the day instead of getting an entire new arcade cabinet. This cabinet was probably originally an asteroids and got kitted into surf planet. I don't expect this to be the best game ever, just something a little different for us to enjoy for a bit.
The controls on this game are super simple, it's just a stick that goes side to side, only 2 directions to worry about! Besides trying to win the race and not run into things, you need to pick up wax in order to keep going at top speed.
