Take a trip back to the 80s and revisit your favorite arcade games. More than 30 classic games return to life in this full size upright console that recalls nostalgic days spent in an arcade mastering the challenges of video games that were the forerunners of todayâ€™s digital imagery. Unlike imitations that are 70% the size, this arcade game console is the real thing: it uses the original programming that gave arcade games such a distinctive, groundbreaking feel, with all the lights, color, sound, and gaming action you remember. Games include Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Tempest, Super Breakout and Street Fighter II.
The console is made in the U.S. by the world-renowned Chicago Gaming Company, experts in arcade games for over 30 years, and makers of fine game systems for such names as Williams and Konami, This system is the same kind that has been tested in arcades for years, for true arcade-style play and feel. A crisp Wells Gardner 25″ monitor (not a computer monitor) doesnâ€™t let a single classic visual detail escape the eye, and real arcade controls, including two joysticks (remember those?), a 3″ trackball, and multiple buttons lend true-to-life feel that will give you (not your 8-year-old) the upper hand in challenging one-on-one game play. A host of vintage Atari and Capcom games (35 in all, including the above-mentioned titles, as well as other classics like Battlezone, Millipede, and Ghosts n Goblins) ensures plenty of challenge variety, and will inspire you to take out the photo album to reminisce. An interactive menu (c ontrolled via the joysticks and buttons) lets you customize sound volume, delete high scores, and even add future games as they are made available. The only difference between this unit and the games in the arcades is you donâ€™t have to constantly feed it quarters or wait for your turn (authentic coin door does not workâ€”commercial use prohibited), because this one sits right in your own activity room, ready for play whenever you are.
