Geocache Description:



For the story behind Pimp my Pump crew, all references, info, water pumps, and projects check Pimp my Pump: The Headquarters geocache, all the PmP news and a complete list of all pimped pumps will be there, up to date. Also, paint on the pumps, and especially on the floor, unfortunately deteriorates with time, so the pumps can be rather different looking than their pictures in the listing...

EN: Originally, this pump was pimped as Professor Balthazar, a title character from the first croatian cartoon serial. It was being made from 1967. to 1971. and 59 episodes of duration of 5-10 mins had been made in total. They followed the adventures of an eccentric inovator Balthazar, who tried to help the citizens of Balthazar-City (sic!) with his inventions. In 2005, new episodes have been made. I even found the official site of Professor Balthazar!
Recently, the Pac-Man design which was on another pump was painted on this one. For you kids out there, who played your first computer games on smartphones, Pac-Man was one of the first video games developed for the arcade – arcades are those biiig boxes with a screen, with just ONE video game – you had to insert a coin, and then you could play one game. If you die, new coin, new game… It was published in 1980, and become immensely popular from its original release to the present day; Pac-Man is considered one of the classics of the medium, virtually synonymous with video games, and an icon of 1980s popular culture. It is also one of the highest-grossing video games of all time, having generated more than $2.5 billion in quarters by the 1990s.

HR: Ova pumpa je spimpana u stilu Profesora Baltazara. Ne znam koliko će ga se mlađi sjećati, no to je bio valjda prvi hrvatski crtani film (sniman od 1967.-1971., i to 59 epizoda koje traju od 5-10 minuta) o simpatičnom profesoru inovatoru, koji je koristio svoje izume da bi pomagao običnim ljudima u svom Baltazar-gradu. Navodno su 2005 snimljene nove epizode. Evo, čak sam pronašao i službeni sajt Profesora Baltazara!
Nedavno, Pac-Man dizajn koji je bio na jednoj drugoj pumpi je iskopiran na ovu ovdje. Za vas mlade, koji ste svoju prvu kompjutersku igru odigrali na smartphone-u, Pac-Man je jedna od prvih video igara napravljena za arkadu. Arkade su oni veeeliki “ormari” s ekranom, koji u sebi imaju samo JEDNU video igru. Trebali ste ubaciti kovanicu, nakon čega ste mogli odigrati jednu igru. Ako bi poginuli (obično su bila po tri života), nova kovanica, nova igra. Objavljena 1980. godine, postala je nevjerovatno popularna sve do današnjih dana. Pac-Man se smatra jednim od klasika video igara, skoro pa sinonimom za iste, te ikona popularne kulture 80-ih godina. Ujedno je jedna od igara koja je zaradila najviše novaca ikad, preko 2.5 *milijarde* dolara u kovanicama već do 1990-e.

Za priču o Pimp my Pump ekipi, reference, informacije, ofarbane gradske pumpe, i ostale projekte provjerite Pimp my Pump: The Headquarters geocache, sve PmP vijesti te kompletna recentna lista spimpanih pumpi će biti tamo. Isto tako, boje na pumpama, a pogotovo na podu, nažalost blijede s vremenom, pa pumpe mogu izgledati dosta drugačije nego njihove slike u listingu...
