Trivia

Sonic Blast Man was originally an arcade game from Taito, but almost no one ever saw it in arcades. Why? The problem was that the arcade version had a huge pad and big boxing gloves that you were supposed to strap on. With the gloves on, you slam the pad as hard as possible to "hit" your opponents in the game.

Now what was the problem in this? Well, for one, kids were running up to the pads on the machines and either slamming them bare-handed or KICKING them!! Sometimes kids hit them so hard that they injured themselves quite badly. After tons of complaints from angry parents, many arcades had to ditch the machines, and after a while Taito stopped producing the machines in the U.S. altogether (they did last longer in Japan, though).
