Darwin 4078 get! Also, fixed some layout issues.

Last night I had a small shmupmeet at home and one of my guests presented me with a very nice gift – a Data East “Darwin 4078” PCB! He knew how I had longed to own this game, but it really never pops up for sale, so he gave me his board. Thanks a lot, Sticky!

As I added this game to my list of vertical games, I noticed that somehow the page’s layout has been messed up, so I fixed it.

In other news, I’m almost done with the supergun I’m building, so I had it running all of last night so my guests could play horizontal games on my TV without me having to rotate my screens. It was quite a success, I’m happy to say. I’ll do a write-up of my supergun buil when I’m 100% done with it along with a list of used components.

BONUS! Here are a couple of Youtube videos from my shmupmeet last night:


  1. You have a very kind friend sir! Nice GET! 🙂

    1. Yes, it was a very moving gesture. I’ve been “out of commission” for a couple of months due to an injury, so this was sorta the best get-well present a guy could think of. I checked the going rate for this game btw, and they don’t come cheap. 😛
