"Go and find Kitty in the real cave!"
In 1992 this was the game that you could find myself and friends crowded around in our local, and I use the term loosely, arcade. Many, many tokens were pumped into this machine as well as jokes that were created by certain bits of dialogue.
I remember playing the part of Wolverine the most on this arcade game. I believe that Nightcrawler, Cyclops, and Colossus were the frequent characters chosen by my video warrior cohorts to battle the forces of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. I seem to recall Storm and Dazzler being chosen every once in a while as well.
For myself this game gave a thrill akin to that of Gauntlet. Four/Eight strangers working together to help each other out...unless we are talking about Gauntlet where a stranger might continuously push you into the mobs of enemies.
