Crazy Taxi is a score attack driving game released by SEGA in 1999, where the aim is to pick up passengers and get them to their destination before time runs out.

Gameplay is fast-paced and frantic. You ride in one of four yellow American cabs driven by either Axel, B.D. Joe, Gina or Gus. After stopping to pick up a passenger, you follow an arrow at the top of the screen towards their drop-off zone, building a bigger fare along the way with crazy drifts, stunts and near-misses. The fares when completed are added to the total earned, and you’re awarded a license at the end when time runs out based on how well you did.

Sequels would later include a range of locations inspired by major cities in the USA, but the earthquake-wracked streets of San Francisco provide the perfect inspiration for the original game’s roller-coaster excitement, as you fly at high-speed towards the bottom of near-vertical gradients. Featuring iconic tracks from The Offspring and Bad Religion, the West Coast, pop-punk soundtrack has the nitro energy to match the speed of the drive, and the bands’ sounds of relentless youth and sunshine freedom set the tone as you hurtle towards your next fare.

Silver Strike Bowling is an interactive bowling game that brings the excitement of ten-pin bowling to video game format. Using a trackball controller, players must aim for strikes and spares and win against others in the tournament. This retro game has stood the test of time, and bowling remains an arcade favourite thanks to consoles like the Wii.

Players of all abilities will love Silver Strike Bowling. Its straightforward controls and customisable difficulty level makes it easy to get stuck in. The rules are exactly as you’d expect, and the realistic graphics recreate the unique atmosphere of a bowling alley to a tee. This arcade cabinet has true classic arcade looks; it features a built in old-school CRT monitor with VGA graphics, and a chunky cabinet design with the recognisable yellow and blue branding on the top and sides.

Tilt in Birmingham?

 is slightly hidden in City Arcade, Union Street, but is just steps away from WH Smiths and busy Corporation Street. Outside a billboard encourages people to try out their craft beers and loose tea.

Pinball machines greet you at the front door with a row of sparkling, well-oiled examples glimmering with flashing lights. There’s pinball themes for Game Of Thrones, Ghostbusters and the Addams Family to name a few.

There’s a welcoming laidback atmosphere to Tilt and over at the bar, the barman helpfully gives an overview of the many craft beers on offer as well as the vast range of loose teas and artisan coffees. When I’m there, choices include raspberry and blueberry beers – Rose Are Brett raspberry saison and Violets Are a Blue blueberry saison from toolbeer in Copenhagen.
