Remember those classic arcade game machines in amusement arcades, bars, and other leisure areas? It will depend on your age if you remember them well or you've only heard of them, but Pocket Arcade brings together a few of them so that you can feel young once again or travel back to prehistory if you've never tried them out.
This application for Android smartphones and tablets offers us a collection of different games that are based on the skill of the player. Packed into a single APK, this app comes along with four games presented in a format that recreates those of old arcade machines.
Bring back the arcade machines of your youth.
Without a doubt, an application that will wake up the nostalgia of quite a few users remembering how happy they were almost three decades ago playing on these gadgets.
Four mini-games in one
These are the four games that you can find inside this app:
- Alien Whacker: a version of the classic Whack-A-Mole, in which you have to hit the aliens as hard as possible.
- Mayan Coin Pusher: drop coins strategically so that when they fall into the basket you'll be rewarded with more points.
- UFO Catcher: a game in which you control a claw to try to pick up different prizes.
- Hoop Hero: try to get as many balls into the hoop without missing.
All these games were quite common at fairgrounds, beach resorts, and places like that, and they'll probably make you feel old or look weird at any oldie that talks about them with so much love and affection.
Let's just hope that they soon expand the classic games available... What about Pac-Man and Space Invaders?
