Name That Tune is a quiz arcade game that was released by Bally and Sente in 1986; it is the first of that third batch of games to run on that company's SAC-I hardware, and is based on the quiz show of the same name. The players must use four buttons (yellow for 1P and red for 2P) to identify all songs which are being heard from the game's six CEM-3394 soundchips - and unlike with other quiz games (including Bally and Sente's own Trivial Pursuit games), the difficulty does not depend on the players' general knowledge, but on their musical knowledge from the time. This also renders it unplayable for people who are hard of hearing, for they may only answer the questions correctly through luck; there are a total of fifteen rounds in this game, and you have to identify a certain amount of tunes correctly for each one (the number to the right or left of the yellow or red circle indicates how many you have).
