Dream Palace (ドリームパレス) is a crane game initially released by Sega in early 1992.
Dream Palace is an eight-player UFO Catcher, similar to the one (UFO Catcher Mini), two (New UFO Catcher) and four (Dream Catcher) player crane games Sega were producing in the early 1990s. The same rules apply as with all UFO Catchers, however, accommodating eight players leads to Dream Palace being a very large cabinet, ill-suited for smaller venues. The unit consists of eight separate single player UFO chambers on a rotating carousel-themed platform.
In this early UFO Catcher, the mechanism to raise/lower the claw is driven by compressed air, rather than the mechanical parts used in later versions. The powerful pneumatic system tends to cause excessive wear and tear on the machine, and the air lines malfunction frequently. As a result, this game is quite rare.
