As a child I spent a lot of time playing on arcade machines. Back in February we told you about the Midway Arcade app for the iPhone and iPad. Now it’s been updated!
Midway Arcade provides the ultimate arcade experience with a virtual showroom equipped with 10 classic arcade games, tickets and virtual prizes. The app allows players to take their favourite arcade games, such as Spy Hunter, Joust, Rampage and more, along with four skill – based games, including Pool, Air Hockey, Roll Ball and Basketball, with them on the go.
Players also have the option to purchase additional Midway classics through In-App Purchase. The extra fun in the Fantasy Game Pack includes Gauntlet I, Gauntlet II and Wizard of Wor, while the Action Game Pack unlocks APB, NARC and Total Carnage. Players compete against their friends, earn achievements and dominate online leaderboards.
The complete Midway Arcade virtual showroom includes the following titles:
- Spy Hunter: Race down a freeway in an armed sports car and destroy enemies while protecting civilian vehicles;
- Rampage: Reduce the city to rubble as gigantic monsters George (a King-Kong-like gorilla), Lizzie (a Godzilla-like dinosaur/lizard), and Ralph (a giant werewolf);
- Defender: Defeat waves of invading aliens while protecting astronauts in this 2D shooting game;
- Joust: While riding a flying ostrich, fight to defeat enemy knights riding buzzards;
- Root Beer Tapper: As the bartender, serve beer and collect empty mugs and tips without letting the thirsty patrons’ patience expire;
- Arch Rivals: In this Basket Brawl, outscore opponents as a crowd pleaser, rebound king, a defensive giant and more;
- Skill-Based Games: Beat your friends’ top scores in Pool, Air Hockey, Roll Ball and Basketball.
