A good arcade port from a popular game often seen is a lot of arcade houses and bars where I used to live, but only for a short period.
I'm not madly in love with this game as some people are, only because I don't fancy the game mechanics. But also because I think is could be a lot smoother, like Bubble Bobble or Rainbow Islands, just to name a few.
Also it lacks variety in the color scheme, which is always the same, making the game nowadays a bit boring, especially when compared with the games above.
But for 1987 this was pretty good.
