Arcade Fun

Games written by: Paul Neave

Ok. I agree. Its not got a whole lot to do with archery. But browsing the internet I came across these classic arcade games and they brought back some fond memories. I remember playing Asteroids on holiday (at one of the IFAA European Championships, I think, in Germany ), and feeding all my pocket money into this coin-op only to go and beg some more off my Dad. I've never grown out of these things and I have a feeling some of you out there haven't either.


SPACE INVADERS - With high score tables!
Space Invaders was designed and programmed by Toshihiro Nishikado for Taito , Japan in 1978 and remains one of the most popular arcade games ever made.

ASTEROIDS - With high score tables!
In 1979, Ed Logg designed one of the most enduring video games in History. Asteroids was a huge commercial success which established video games as a lasting entertainment media. Now go blow up some rocks.

TETRIS - With high score tables!
Tetris is one of the few games that achieves ultimate popularity. It is remarkably simple, yet remarkably difficult. It's been ported to every computer and game console known to man, and has sold millions of cartridges, tapes, and disks across the land.

SNAKE - With high score tables!
This game has been around for a long, long time, but became famous when Nokia made it a standard on their mobiles.

Pac-Man is the best-selling coin-operated game in history. Forget Street Fighter 2 and Tetris. In the game's debut year alone, over 100,000 Pac-Man machines were made and sold around the world.

This is the classic game of Simon Says using tones and lights. How goods your memory? Two Reds, green, three blues... errr... doh!

Or Naughts and Crosses as it is supposed to be called. Thanks to huge leaps in technological advancement it is now unnecessary to ever use a pencil again. At least to play this game, anyway.

Hexxagon happens to be one of those games that's easier to play than it is to explain.  You play as the red diamonds, and your goal is to take over the board by leaping into the spaces adjacent to your opponent's watery globules.
