NEW:  One of the upright versions has been found in February 2011 - link

Game Info

Description - Space Pirate is a copy of Cinematronics' Rip Off. Wether we're talking about a licensed game or a pirated copy, is unclear. Reason is that on the CPU PCB the two logos of Cinematronics and Zaccaria are co-existing side by side.

Cabinet Types - Upright cab with Color Finish, Upright cab with wood finish and the Cocktail cab
The Cocktail cab version has been known to still exist for a while. The two versions of the Upright were lost for some time  until now, in Feb. 2011, the colorful Upright cab has been found link. More pictures will follow...
