Philpotts Towers

Description

Two tall towers each 5 stories high. The buildings are a beautiful red brick complimented with masterful stone masonry framing the windows and doorway entrances. Narrow enclosed walkways link the towers together on each floor. The complex was an upper-class housing unit who's most unique feature is an arcade occupying the entire penthouse floor. This arcade has been adopted by ZombGG and is meticulously maintained despite the post-apocalyptic scenario.

Arcade Games

Below is a list of games donated by patrons:

2005 House of the Dead 4 - The House of the Dead 4 is a horror-themed light gun arcade game for one or two players and is the fourth installment of the House of the Dead series of video games, developed by Sega. This machine was donated on 4/20/2020 by ZombGG
Return of the Jedi pinball machine - A custom built Malton exclusive of mysterious origin, this Star Wars pinball machine is nonetheless a big hit in Philpotts Towers. Donated by ZombGG on 4/20/2020
1989 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a side-scrolling beat-'em-up arcade game released by Konami. This cabinet supports up to 4 player co-op! Donated by Kain Markko[1] on 4/20/2020
Mappy - Mappy is a side-scrolling platform game made by Namco that features a mouse protagonist and cat antagonists. Mappy runs on Namco Super Pac-Man hardware, modified to support horizontal scrolling. The name "Mappy" is likely derived from mappō (まっぽう), a Japanese (slightly pejorative) slang term for a policeman. This version is the kind for a Sony Playstation, a platform which presently Philpotts Towers lacks, so it serves beautifully as an art installment! Donated by Dianna Davis[2] on 4/20/2020
1989 Splatterhouse - Splatterhouse (スプラッターハウス, Supurattāhausu) is a beat 'em up arcade game developed and published by Namco. The game was heavily influenced by American slasher films and the works of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, and is a homage to the violent horror films of the 1980s. Players of this game will also recognize a number of western horror film influences, such as Friday the 13th and Evil Dead II. Donated by Hate Crime[3] (who also holds the highest score with the initials A.S.S.) on 4/20/2020
1981 Black Hole pinball machine - Released by Gottlieb, it was the first machine to feature a lower playfield viewed through a window in the upper playfield. It was touted as the highest-grossing pinball game of all time shortly after its release, partly due to (or despite) the fact that it was the first pinball game which cost 50¢ to play. Black Hole's robotic speech is generated by a Votrax SC-01. Donated by Thaddeus Grundel[4] on 4/20/2020
1983 Tapper - also known as Root Beer Tapper, is a 1983 arcade game developed by Marvin Glass and Associates and released by Bally Midway. Tapper puts the player in the shoes of a bartender who must serve eager, thirsty patrons (before their patience expires) while collecting empty mugs and tips. It was intended to be sold to bars, with cabinets sporting a brass rail footrest and drink holders. Early machines had game controllers that were actual Budweiser beer tap handles, which were later replaced by smaller, plastic versions with the Budweiser logo on them. Donated by lostfire[5] on 4/20/2020 and installed by her wombat, Frey.
2009 Operation Skill Game - Manufactured by Coastal Amusements in 2009 and smuggled into Malton soon after, this arcade game is a life-size version of Milton Bradley's 1965 battery-operated game 'Operation'. This single player game tests hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Also doanted by lostfire[6] on 4/20/20 and installed by her wombat, Frey.
1980 Pac-Man - a maze arcade game developed and released by Namco. The player controls Pac-Man, who must eat all the dots inside an enclosed maze while avoiding four colored ghosts (Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde) who roam the maze, trying to catch Pac-Man. Philpotts Towers presently lacks, so it too serves as a neat knick knack. It was donated by Jason Prescott[7] on 4/20/2020.

History

Philpotts Towers was a headquarters for a group called Pexi's Angels.

April 20th 2020: ZombGG celebrated an epic birthday bash and 4/20 party in the Philpotts Towers 5th floor penthouse arcade with the Roftwood Communication Center, Roftwood Elite, Malton Medical Staff, Flowers of Decay, and a character with the Ridleybank Resistance Front! Enough quantity of Cran(ium)berry wine, Greenhow Gutrot and imported Caiger Coolers was drank to drain Lake Michigan twice. Observers equated the mass of the cloud of skunky smelling white smoke fuming from Philpotts Towers to that of the 1944 Mount Vesuvius eruption. By sunrise there was no evidence left suggesting the existence of what once was a dank pile of powerfully potent pot brownies stacked in a masterful scaled replication of Giza's Great Sphinx. All this as well as dancing and speeches and death and resurrection and even red christmas lights all added together for quite the good time! --ZombGG (talk) 16:21, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
July 24th: More about the towers later. --Hedari 14:35, 24 July 2007 (BST)
