That's awesome! I played this all the time wile my parents went grocery shopping and never knew about this. Think the highest I ever got to was round 25 or so.

My brother worked at an arcade, so I've beaten plenty. Any time I was playing a game while he was working, he'd pop open the machine and trigger the coin sensor a few dozen times. It was the original "pay" to win.

Track And Field. Although it wasn't so much a case of beating it as playing it until I got bored. Once you got to a certain point the distances/times you needed to progress never got any harder.

Re: Video games that you beat at an arcade?

Of what I can remember...

WWF WrestleFest
TMNT
The Simpsons
X-men (6 player cabinet ftw!)
Terminator 2 (this one ate a ton of quarters)
Mortal Kombat 1, 2
Street Fighter 1, 2
Moonwalker
Marvel vs. Capcom 1, 2
Crusin' World
Time Crisis II

This is bringing me back to the days where I thought a $10 roll of quarters and a couple hours to waste made me feel on top of the world!

I miss the arcade. I'm glad Barcades are becoming more popular.
