Pump up the jam! Windjammers / Flying Power Disc was an absolute fun fest when it originally came out for the NEO-GEO MVS in the arcade, and now it’s available to play on the iiRcade!

Windjammers takes the simple concept of Pong and throws it into a professional sports setting. It’s effectively one-on-one Pong meets volleyball as you square off with opponents around the world to become the Windjammers champion. Discs can be thrown at various angles and at different speeds depending on long the player holds onto the disc. To score, toss the disc into the opponent’s goal, but it isn’t that simple. One wrong toss and your opponent can intercept the disc and fire it back at you with superhuman strength and speed. To add to the challenge, several different selectable fields are available that provide additional obstacles and challenges.

From the moment he touched an Intellivision controller in 1985, Mike knew that he had experienced something incredible in the world of video games that would shape him for the rest of his life. From that point forward, he would make it his mission to experience video games from every console generation going forward. Eventually, he would become obsessed with magazines that wrote about the games he loved, and it would inspire him to start writing about games himself in 1998 for various local media outlets. Always looking for an opportunity to branch out, Mike eventually coded the foundation of a website that would ultimately morph into Gamer Logic Dot Net, an independent video game site that continues to cover modern and classic video game today. Additional, Mike composes music for indie games under his other alias "Unleaded Logic"
