Sega Pengo to JAMMA Adapter

Description

Allows you to use your Sega Pengo pre-JAMMA game, in a JAMMA cabinet or a super gun device.

Pengo was developed by Coreland and released by Sega in the arcades in 1982. The game introduced some interesting mechanics which make it quite fun, and as a result became fairly popular. It is still rather enjoyable even by today’s standards.

This game pcb is unusual in a sense that it has a unique pinout and was released by a Sega, an already successful arcade game company at that time, that used a common pinout in their other releases. To this day, according to VAPS statistics, Pengo is one of the top most collected early video games of all time with a unique pinout.
