A new OpenFPGA core for the Analogue Pocket has opened up access to a host of classic Taito arcade games from the 1980s.

The arrival of Anton Gale's Taito System SJ core means it's now possible to enjoy the likes of Elevator Action and Jungle King on your FPGA-powered handheld. Manufactured by Taito in 1982, the Taito System SJ featured pretty advanced hardware specifications for the period.

Suppported games currently include:

  • Alpine Ski
  • Bio Attack
  • Elevator Action
  • High Way Race
  • Jungle King
  • Pirate Pete
  • Space Cruiser
  • Space Seeker
  • Time Tunnel
  • Water Ski
  • Wild Western

Titles which are currently not working are:

  • Kick Start Wheelie King
  • Front Line
  • Sea Fighter Poseidon
  • The Tin Star

Gale has already stated that high score saving is in the pipeline for the core.
