Play Bunten's "M.U.L.E." at Game Ever

Posted By on Fri, Feb 10, 2012 at 9:32 AM

We wrote about Game Ever, Noel Franks' West Little Rock video game arcade/museum/day spa/temple at 400 N. Bowman Road, a few weeks back, and my 12-year-old has since become a regular, spending at least three Saturdays since the story came out fragging other kids at "Halo: Reach," eating pizza, playing ping-pong and generally having a safe, fun afternoon while his Parental Units get some Hang Time. It's pretty much heaven for the tween-to-teen set, and a bargain to boot at just $10 for all day.

Noel is a video game history superfreak and a friend of the Times, so in honor of our cover story this week on pioneering Little Rock video game designer Dani Bunten and his company Ozark Softscape , Game Ever has set up an old-school Nintendo console with four controllers and a vintage copy of "M.U.L.E." — Ozark Softscape's groundbreaking prospectors-in-space mining title — so players can try their hand at Bunten's most enduring and influential game.

Get by there with the kiddies and sample at a slice of Little Rock's digital heritage. You might just end up a Game Ever devotee.
