Sure, Apple has sent the world into a tizzy with their new [Boot Camp](http://www.apple.com/bootcamp/) software, allowing Mac users with Intel based machines to run Windows. It’s astounding news, and when [you see it in action](http://www.cabel.name/2006/04/boot-camp-first-look-half-life-2-video.html), you will say WOW – but I’m not here to talk about the [business ramifications](http://daringfireball.net/2006/04/windows_the_new_classic).
I’m here to talk about the *other* electronic Boot Camp.
In my 24 years as a gamer, there were times when I would go into an arcade and in the course of my visit, find some game I’d never even heard of that just flat out grabbed hold of my very being. There would either never be a home version of this game, or it would completely suck. The arcade cabinet itself would inevitably disappear a week or two later, and never be seen again.
Boot Camp – a 1987 Konami arcade game – was one of those games. Read on, and learn about what may be the archetype game for Konami’s gameplay in the 1980’s.
