YouTuber and Ultimate Atari Fan Brian Thomas Barnhart has created a full sized recreation of the Atari Barrel Pong, which was originally produced by Atari in 1973 one of a few games produced “in a barrel” – a very distinct cabinet indeed in which Brian “Had to Have!”.
You can see more of this build over on Brians Blog Post on Atari.io in which he says:
I gotta be honest with you, I don’t even know how to start talking about this project other than this was something that I wanted to build. I wanted to build something unique and different in my arcade. And I was kind of intrigued by the very early Atari “Syzygy” arcade cabinets. Some of them are very, very cool, very unique. This is something I’ve never seen before, I’ve never seen a real Atari Barrel-Pong out in the wild. They were supposed to have been made in 1973 and they went to Australia, however I’ve only seen Barrel-Pong on the flyer.
Brian also shares a build plan, with lots of sizes and photographs over here – if you create one, we’d love to see it!
