Released during a period in which even middle-of-the-road rock bands wanted to get on the arcade bandwagon, Journey launches the titular band into space to retrieve their "electro supercharged instruments" from "wild alien groupoids" (yep). The game riffs on the minigame formula of Tron to send the five band members, complete with digitized black-and-white heads, through multi-stage levels to grab their instruments (which turn into weapons) and make it back to their scarab spaceship. Completing all five games takes you to a final concert (which featured a cassette-powered loop of "Separate Ways") in which roadie Herbie must defend the stage from the aforementioned groupoids, lest you be forced to do it all over again. Weird stuff, but worth a try. Make sure you grab the audio sample Zip file and place it in your MAME samples folder.
