Revolution X (c) 1994 Midway Mfg. Co.
A first-person shooter featuring the multi-platinum selling rock band Aerosmith.
It's 1996 and the US have been taken over by the New Order Nation. The group, led by their commander Mistress Helga, have declared war on youth culture, banning music, TV and video games in the process. Meanwhile at a gig in Los Angeles, members of Aerosmith are captured by the NON. With a machine gun in your hand and the strongest weapon of them all, music, it is your task to end the regime of the New Order Nation and free the Aerosmith members.
Remember... MUSIC IS THE WEAPON!

- TRIVIA -
Revolution X was released in March 1994.
The game was originally called 'Generation X', until it was realised Marvel owned the copyright to that name (listen to the opening sequence to hear the game being referred to by it's original title).
Several subtle in-jokes appear in the game that lead many to believe that the programmers were massive fans of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, although had difficulty recalling it in detail.
1. When the final boss loses limbs, he sometimes says 'Just a flesh wound' a quote from the Black Knight scene.
2. The subtitles in the credits, including 'Why not try a holiday in Norway this yer?' are often slight misquotes of those in the film credits.
3. 'Llamas trained by Nicholas Petro.' Llama jokes a plenty in the TV series and film credits, but moose trainers were included by name in the film. Nicholas is of course the brother of George N. Petro.
4. The dramatic music change and palette swap of the final credit screen is a nod to the Holy Grail joke where the credit writers were sacked and replaced with another team 'at great expense and at the last minute' who did things in a different way.
This game features four Aerosmith songs : 'Eat the Rich', 'Sweet Emotion', 'Toys in the Attic' and the ending song 'Walk This Way'.
Michael Jackson (1958~2009) used to own this game (Serial number: 400191127). It was sold at the official Michael Jackson Auction on April 24th, 2009.
On May 8th, 2014 at the Regency 8 Cinema and Arcade, located at I-75 and Hwy 192 London, KY 40741, player John Bullard, under the initials JLB reached a high score of 4,099,990 on the original arcade cabinet, without cheating.

- TIPS AND TRICKS -
* "Trog"!: To see one of the Trogs, you MUST destroy the black cat on the brick wall. After having doing so, you'll notice a palm tree behind the brick wall. Quickly blast the palm tree with a CD. If you are successful, Trog will pop out of the tree and waddle his way across the brick wall. He will gain speed back and forth like the cat. If you shoot him a certain amount of times, you will have access to yet another hidden area in the game.
The reason behind Trog's inclusion? After having such a harrowing time with the Trog project, Petro and Haeger wanted to have an opportunity to blow him away repeatedly in their offices!
* Game Lock-Up: If you manage to blow up the NON bus while it is going off screen at the end of the level the game wil freeze up. The coins can still be put in the machine and you can add more players but the game just stand there until the operator resets the machine.
