Twenty classic arcade games

Cabinet reshuffle

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Smash TV

Take the basic game mechanics of Robotron 2084, add more weapons and set everything in a futuristic, violent gameshow. Cheesy, superbly hammed-up audio samples of "Good luck, you'll need it!" and "I'd buy that for a dollar!" (nabbed from Robocop) would boom across arcade-rooms, sucking players in for the killing. This double-joystick beast was all about instant violence gratification, with endless joy in grabbing that grenade, rocket-launcher or invincibility power-up just in time to take out a gang of pursuing zombies. “Bingo!”

Streetfighter 2

I actually considered leaving this one out, having covered it in more detail last year. Then I had an epiphany about the torrent of abuse I’d suffer if it wasn’t included, so let’s all calm down and have a quick drool over its mythical six attack-button beauty and status as the most accomplished one-on-one fighter there has ever been.

Time Crisis

Introducing a foot pedal that ducks your player out of gunshot trouble, Time Crisis represents the mid-1990s generation of polygon-shunting arcade hardware well, and achieved considerable notoriety at the time. Subsequent releases allowed players to work in tandem, and modern arcade venues haven’t looked back, with a constant stream of laser-gun titles available for punters. Namco has since revived the series for mobile platforms, aware that it achieved such a heavy following the first time round.
