Lock ‘n’ Chase, Arcade

Yes, Data East‘s classic 1981 arcade game does feature a policeman called “Stiffy”. The other three are called “Scaredy”, “Smarty” and “Silly”. And together the four of them chase you – a thief – whose mission it is to collect the coins in the maze, and any other treasure that appears, before escaping.

Lock ‘n’ Chase is hardly ‘high-brow’ gaming, but bare in mind that this was made in 1981. And back in 1981, dinosaurs still roamed the planet…

Anyway. Lock ‘n’ Chase is simple but fun. It’s an early colour video game that does alright under its own auspices, even if it is – in essence – something of a Pac-Man clone.
