Sadly the Jamma arcade cabinet world is dying, in reality and in upcoming Metroidvania freeware game CoinOp Story. You play as Gen, a generic arcade cabinet, that can absorb the power of any Jamma board, with each game giving him a specific feature related to that game. Gen eventually meets his opposition, another generic cabinet fed with illegal and unstable Bootleg Jamma cards that drove him crazy. Your goal will be to collect all the Jamma game cards and bring them back to the mysterious "Castle of Nostalgia," somehow saving the Jamma world.
Creator KaMiZoTo has worked for Phoenix interactive, Dokidenki, and Okugi and has GameCube discs for eyes. He is spending his spare time to craft CoinOp Story for Windows, Mac, and Linux, using the Construct 2 engine. Hopefully with some Internet love and support, he'll focus on CoinOp Story and bring it to us sooner rather than later.
For now, enjoy this epic boss battle song.
