Midway Arcade 

 

Midway Arcade contains Spy Hunter, Rampage, Joust, Root Beer Tapper, Defender, Arch Rivals, Air Hockey, Arcade Basketball, Pool, and Roll Ball. Six arcade video games and four old school arcade games. There are also two in-app packages that can be purchased. The first one contains NARC, Total Carnage, and APB. The second one includes Gauntlet, Gauntlet II, and Wizard of Wor.

The games in Midway Arcade harken back to a bygone era. The era of large arcade video games, and simple arcade games. We earn tickets for playing the games in Midway Arcade. Those tickets are redeemed for in app prizes. Things like stuffed animal versions of the characters from Rampage.

Before anyone out there freaks out about the graphics in Midway Arcade, let me remind you that these are old Midway games. Joust and Defender look similar to the old arcade games. There are certain visual issues that the descriptors denote. Expect violence in many of them, and cheerleaders in Arch Rivals. The first add on pack contains additional violence, and things like blood.

Much water has flowed past the trees in the forest. Many moons have come and gone since I last played the games in Midway Arcade. Some have aged well, and others are like looking at a black and white television show. I have always been a history buff so it does not bother me. Midway Arcade can be used to educate the youth as to how we actually did have to walk two miles uphill in the snow to school. And yes that was both ways.

There are enough games, and there is enough to do in Midway Arcade to warrant the cost of the app. I enjoyed many of the games in Midway Arcade. I did have some issues with the Air Hockey game. The computer intelligence is insanely difficult to beat. And it was only in that one. Roll ball is so easy that I got one hundred points on every single ball.

The presentation of Midway Arcade is very fresh and fascinating. It feels like we are actually in an arcade. It feels like moving around to different machines. Midway Arcade is half and half in terms of being family friendly. Half of the games in Midway Arcade are very family friendly. The other half contain content that families will question. Please note I am not including any of the in-app purchases in the scoring of this review.
