What It Is
If you spent your childhood playing games at the arcade, then you'll love playing the 240 games included in the Mini Arcade Machine. This battery-powered game unit looks like a classic arcade machine complete with an image of a coin slot on the front. It stands about 6.5 inches tall, and you can hold it in your hand or play with it on a tabletop. Turn it on to discover 77 arcade games, 69 puzzle games, 55 shooting games, and 39 sports games. All of the games have the classic 16-bit look of the games you played back in the day. Use the joystick and the “A” and “B” buttons to play. Press the “reset” button any time you want to go back and choose a different game to play. From car racing to Sudoku and even Duck Hunter, this small unit has a lot of games to choose from. And the machine's color screen has an enhanced rear screen light for clear visibility in both bright and low light.
Is It Fun?
You won't need to remember your quarters to play the games on this arcade machine. Just turn it on and relive your childhood whenever you want. This will obviously appeal more to adults who remember playing arcade games when they were kids, but it's also a fun way for parents to share the fun gameplay experience with their own kids. There's such a variety of games included in this machine that you can play something different each time you turn it on. It's going to be a lot of fun to play, but arcade fans will also like keeping it out as a display piece for their desktops.
Who It’s For
While the Mini Arcade Machine can be played by kids as young as 3, the throwback look and style of games will definitely have a nostalgic appeal to today's parents. This mini machine would be a fun desktop display piece for someone who remembers playing arcade games as a kid and a fun distraction from doing actual work.
