Arcade Classics
According to MAME, this is a prototype of an arcade game. Whether or not it was ever released is unknown to me. But this is a game that every classic game fan has to download and enjoy! It is a godsend for two player fans like myself and another reason why I am hog wild this month!

Arcade classics is a 20th anniversary release for Atari. It features updated versions of two Atari classic arcade games, Centipede and Missile Command. Before you start screaming "Don't ruin my classics", try these gems and see what is a great improvement!

The first and most significant improvement for these games is the dual player feature! Like Centipede on the Atari 7800, you have the ability to play two people at once! Not only in Centipede, but also Missile Command! Is that cool or what?

While the two player feature is enough to warrant these sequels, you have more features, namely improved graphics! While it is minimal in Centipede, it is much more noticeable in Missile Command. Not only do you have to save cities, but the cities are now named and have a distinct look to each one. Washington DC, Moscow and others are now targets and this adds to the game. There are also improvements in the explosions and the planes and ships that fly by.

While the games are pretty much the same as we all remember them, these small changes improve them greatly and will have you enjoying those old classics one more time! Too bad they didn't do this with more games.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
