brickyrd: MAME ROM Information.


Brickyard (c) 1976 RamTek.

A four-player game where players move their cursors across the screen to create walls to try and surround their opponents and force them to crash.


Main CPU : 8080 (@ 559.062 Khz)

Sound Chips : Discrete circuitry.

Players : 4

MAME Info:

0.60 [David Haywood]

Artwork available


- 0.141u3: hap fixed missing collision sound in Barricade.

- 0.135u3: Fabio Priuli added driver data struct and save states to Hit Me driver.

- 1st July 2007: Mr. Do - Another outstanding vector job by Zorg for Barricade. Now, this particular bezel version had a red overlay. "But," I hear you say, "the flyer is green." So I included both.

- 0.80u1: Aaron Giles added Discrete sound. It was patched in as a test and may be removed. It uses the Hit Me sounds for now. Until it can be confirmed against a schematic or real sound board.

- 0.60: David Haywood added Barricade (RamTek 1976) and clone Brickyard.

- 18th April 2002: David Haywood updated the old Hit Me / Brick Yard drivers and added Barricade to it.
