GARDENA, CA -- Andamiro USA Corp. reports that it is now shipping Monster Catcher, its newest ticket redemption game. This is the second such Andamiro game that has been developed specifically for family entertainment centers and arcades. It will be on display in Andamiro's booth #101 at the 2019 Amusement Expo International.

The game involves a flying saucer-type spaceship from which seven distinct monsters disembark in order. Each of the "strange-looking" creatures represents the corresponding difficulty level of gameplay. Each also is more challenging to catch than its predecessor – making the catch is rewarded with additional tickets. A player who achieves catches at all seven levels wins the super bonus.

Gameplay is straightforward. When a monster drops from the ship, the player attempts to catch it by pressing a button that actuates two round paddles. Timing is the key to success. At each monster level, in sequence, the drop height increases, the distance between paddles increases and their size diminishes. Thus, greater hand- eye coordination is required at each level of difficulty.

The game was a hit at the recent International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo. "While I wasn't surprised, it was certainly reassuring to have operators and distributors agree that Monster Catcher was one of the best values making a debut at the Attractions Expo," said Andamiro USA senior sales director Tony Maniscalco. "Our first Monster Catcher containers this year quickly sold out, and we expect demand to remain strong throughout the year."

Monster Catcher is Andamiro's second redemption videogame title. The first was Tight Rope, introduced in late 2017, which Andamiro continues to sell in the U.S. and internationally. Both games were developed by Andamiro for exclusive operation in the arcade channel. Like its predecessor, Monster Catcher features a compact footprint and eye-catching height. It measures 35" W. x 34" D., stands 100" H. and is equipped with a 55" high-definition LCD screen. Click here to watch a YouTube video demonstrating the game in action.
