Super Head-on

Probably it's the colorized version of Head-on, equipped with an Hantarex HTC90 monitor.

Aliens Multispeed



It's identical to Space Invaders as gameplay; but the hardware is totally different. On the cabinet is wrtten"AEA by Gremlin", but the screen shows the name of Sega, which controlled the Gremlin.  From a preliminary scan,  it seems the board is similar to the one of Space Trek, but the monitor is monochrome (perhaps a Hantarex SV-1) covered with colored strips.

Two unit are still existing; the pictures cone from PaYrYcK.

Mini Monaco G.P.

The board was an original Sega with no CPU; the cabinet was very tight.

Borderline

The Romset used by MAME comes from an AEA machine. The PCB inside is identical to the original one made by Sega.

Arcade Super-Reflex

A shooting gallery game in a cabinet full of mirrors.

Rolling Ball
