Arm-Breaking Arcade Game Recalled

Word from the BBC is that a Japanese arcade game called Arm Spirit is being withdrawn from 150 game emporiums after three people broke their arms playing it!

"We think that maybe some players get over-excited and twist their arms in an unnatural way," a spokesman said.

"The machine isn't that strong, much less so than a muscular man. Even women should be able to beat it," company spokesman Ayano Sakiyama told AP news agency.

Arm Spirit gamers advance through 10 levels, pitting their strength against a French maid, a drunken martial arts master and a Chihuahua dog before reaching the final challenge - a professional wrestler.
