Cabal – Playthrough Arcade Completed – no lifes lost – 1coin

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


It’s me finishing one of my all time favorite arcade games: Cabal. Cabal is property of TAD corporation.

I was aiming to not lose any lifes, so I avoided collecting points in risky situations. It’s my third time accomplishing this.

[Español] La "Danza de la Victoria" recuerda mucho a esas celebraciones en series de Anime de los '70 y '80.

[English] That "Victory's Dance" regards me to diverse Victory Celebrations in '70's and '80's Anime Series.

I forgot about the crazy happy dance: LOL.

Bernard W says:

This dude doesn't use all those grenades that much except on the scenery. Good playing. It's not so much the victory dance as the cheesy music that gets me. Love the overload noise when you beat the final boss but the truck dropping turrets was harder. Never knew you could just grenade the stretcher bearers, I was always trying to get a perfect trace on them for 3 grenades, this guy gets 3 with a grenade then up to 3 more. Get the evil red cross.

Bernard W says:

Loved this game and used to be the guy that the kids watched while I finished it one credit like this. I could only do it on this and Black Tiger. You can do these great somersaults between the bullets, looks great. Then you get the rock-n-roll party gun and it gets FUN

iammrcrap says:

damn, what an incredible run!!! i've only ever played this with joystick so far, when i get my new pc all set up though, i'm for sure gonna try it with the trackball on my x-arcade tankstick! by the way, what was the exploit you used on the 3rd boss to make it die so quickly?

cleaner1984 says:

Wow, you finish the game with 8 extra hearts/lives! The best I did so far is 2.

Christian G. Castillo says:

One of the first shooter games of history.

cmatin01 says:

What made it unique and frustrating was the trackball it employed to have you aim and move left and right with. I enjoyed Blood Brothers also but the feel of the game was different without the trackball.

ministry86 says:

I have always loved the music in this game. Some of it sticks in my head all these years later and I gotta come check it out on youtube.

Sinan Polat says:

treeghettox says:

Mang… fuck FPS's, this is the kinda shooting action I crave. Shooting bullets with other bullets is some made-up video game bullshit but got damn is that some fine gameplay.

TheKvack says:
