It's 1981. The DeLorean car hit the streets for the first time, New Romantics filled the streets and, in the arcades, a whole new generation of video gamers were furiously mashing buttons and chomping pick 'n' mix. Now you can rediscover 12 of the most important games of the era in this spectacular, fully-licensed home arcade cabinet.
As video arcade games really came into their own in this exciting year, some legendary titles were released - including Ms. Pac-Man, a big upgrade on the original Pac-Man maze game, and the classic space shoot-em-up Galaga. It's these that give this machine its top two games, its name and its bright, colourful graphics that are elegantly split on each side. But there's so much more to this machine!
There are 12 games in total preloaded into this machine, fully licensed and playing perfectly. There's classic space shooter Galaxian, tunnelling adventure games Dig Dug and Dig Dug II, drift-happy off-road racing in RALLY-X, and many more. These early '80s classics will take you right back for a nostalgia-filled trip to the start of the 1980s.
As they're already preloaded, there are no complicated downloads to negotiate. Simply switch the machine on to enter the menu, browse the full selection and pick your favourites! The real-feel joystick and responsive fire buttons give you full control of your games, leaving you to explore worlds and universes that still fire the neurons of any passionate retrogamer after more than four decades!
Ms Pac-Man vs Galaga is a Deluxe Arcade1Up cabinet, meaning that it's larger than the standard cabinets and doesn't come with a removable riser. In a nod to its arcade heritage, the overhead marquee is illuminated, and the front is fitted with a moulded dummy coin door, making this machine really look the part!
And it sounds the part too, with twin stereo speakers and volume control. The monitor is a high-quality 17-inch screen from BOE, and on the control console you'll find a joystick, fire buttons and 1p/2p select buttons, for those turn-based two-player classics. And with Wifi connection built in, you can compete on global leaderboards for high scores too. If 1981 was your year, this is your perfect home arcade!
