What device is used to regulate power over several circuits?

A friend of mine has 20+ old arcade games in his basement. He has essentially set up a small arcade museum at his house. It's pretty sweet! The games are split between several circuits in the house but power is becoming a concern. These old electronics are sensitive to spikes and low voltages and we want to keep them running as long as possible - most of the circuit boards are not made and difficult to replace or repair. What should we consider for 110v line conditioning? [more inside]

Can you remember this arcade game?

I fondly remember an arcade game from my childhood at the local junk-food kiosk, but I can not remember the name. I have tried to search Google, but I have not found anything. The game, as I remember it, was a side-scrolling shoot ‘em up. You flew planes (1 player or 2 players) and on the ground beneath you dinosaurs where actively trying to kill you with their prehistoric might. [more inside]

What late 80's arcade game is this?

I remember back in '89 or '90 playing a single player arcade game where the main character looked like a barbarian and weilded a large sword. You could also find an axe later. A small cast of the enemies included skeletons carrying what looked like chandeliers. Does anyone know the name of this game? I know it isn't Golden Axe or Ghouls n' Goblins.
