Top 5 Arcade Games
Shooting Game Machine is an exciting arcade game that allows players to fire at different targets in order to win tickets. This game is great for any venue and can be a huge draw for customers!
Players use oversized NERF guns to shoot at colorful targets for either tickets or just fun. The game features four different game levels and a huge 65″ HD display!
Time Crisis 5 DX Arcade Machine
This is the fifth instalment in Namco’s popular Time Crisis series and features a deluxe cabinet. Players can play co-operatively or go solo as they shoot their way through three stages. The game also boasts a new handgun controller design that allows players to cycle weapons with the press of a button.
While the graphics don’t look as crisp as they did in previous games, this rail shooter still looks pretty good for a five-year old arcade machine. And the fact that you can dodge and flick your pistols with ease means it’s a blast to play.
Top Gunner Arcade Machine
Top Gunner is an overhead run ‘n gun video game based on the 1986 film of the same name. The player maneuvers an armed jeep into enemy territory in order to rescue prisoners of war.
Featuring edge-of-your-seat stunts, missile strikes and enemy takedowns, Rolling Gunner is fun from the start – even with the included literally game-changing Over Power mode. Powered by a realistic physics engine, it really does make you feel like Maverick from the Top Gun film franchise!.
Train on the Track Arcade Machine
Train on the Track is a surprisingly simple, yet satisfying little game. It offers players a blank canvas, and lets them build whatever they like, with no constraints other than the size of their play area.
As players build, trains will appear at stations, each colour coded to its intended destination. Players can then jump into a first-person view from the train’s driver cab and control it, stopping to pick up passengers and tooting its whistle. There are also timed missions to complete, bringing added challenge and pressure.
Rambo DX Arcade Machine
This arcade machine comes in a deluxe cabinet and is a high octane shooter that will bring out the Sly Stallone Shooting Game Machine fanatic in everyone. Using machine guns, bows & arrows and daggers players battle against enemies in this movie licence game.
In early 1986 (although the copyright screen claims 1985), there was also Rambo Special for MSX2 (though it doesn’t say “Special” on the box). Developed by Pack-in-Video, it’s a surreal platform RPG resembling Zelda II and Battle of Olympus with EXP and levelling. Manabu Yamana, who would later work on Dragon Quest and Pokemon games for ZAP at age 19, designed it.
Razing Storm DX Arcade Machine
The game is based on the Time Crisis rail shooter series and uses the foot pedal cover system. Players can duck behind a ballistic shield by stepping on the pedal and attack or hide by releasing it.
The game’s FPS mode lets you wander around environments while taking on terrorists with a standard machine gun, but the controls are frustrating. The Move controller’s awkward method of taking cover makes it easy to get stuck in the corner of a room. The environment can also be destroyed, which is a nice touch.
Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition
Developed by Nex Entertainment and Namco Bandai, Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition is a light gun shooter with some surprising elements. It stars members of the all-girl J-pop idol group AKB48 who have been zombified and they’re trying to survive in a zombie-infested world.
Players fire vaccine bullets to save the zombified members (Yuko Oshima, Mayu Watanable, Yuki Kashiwagi, Rina Kawaei, Anna Iriyama, Haruna Kojima and Miki Noshino) by injecting them with an antidote. The game also features a rhythm portion with four songs including Flying Get and Gingham Check.
Outnumbered Arcade Machine
Packed with pop culture themes, multiple levels of difficulty and an endless combination of weapons, Outnumbered is sure to bring players back again and again.
This competitive target shooting video game is engineered to drive traffic to your venue by rewarding players every time they play. Players unlock rewards that they can use to create and upgrade custom weapons in the free companion app, which saves their progress including scores and rewards, then log in to play at the cabinet to continue for free.
A twin-stick shooter from LAI Games, Outnumbered is a modern twist on classic arcade gameplay. Battle waves of advancing minions using math operations and unique Hero Powers to repel them.
Deer Hunting USA Arcade Machine
Deer Hunting USA is the first coin-operated video game designed by hunters to provide a true hunting experience. Players have the choice of four different weapons – rifle, shotgun, compound bow or Shooting Game Machine classic muzzle loader – and can select one of four wilderness areas to hunt.
This version of Big Buck Hunter features a new “Shootout,” gameplay, allowing two players to compete head-to-head. Also included is 5 all-new, high-def 3D modeled animals – whitetail deer, elk, pronghorn antelope and now moose and bighorn sheep. New immersive backgrounds and hunting treks organized by species offer a truly fresh hunting experience.
Faulty Repair Shop Arcade Machine
Arcade video games can be a fun hobby but they can also be challenging to troubleshoot. Fortunately, with a little elbow grease and attention to detail, most arcade issues can be fixed.
In this episode of The Repair Shop, pinball aficionado Geoff Harvey takes on an old one-armed bandit fruit machine given to him by his grandfather. He replaces the faulty PCB, cleans up a rats nest of loose (dangerous) wiring and repairs a few other problems. All for a grand total of $525. Not too shabby!
Captain Black Arcade Machine
From the shooting gallery specialists at Pan Amusements comes Captain Black, a pirate themed game where players try to hit a variety of targets for tickets. Available in dedicated upright and cocktail cabinet configurations.
The American version features four stages based on a town, ship, island and mountain with two bosses. The Japanese and European versions include additional stages set intermittently between the existing ones and several extra enemies, including a Sorceress, Cyclope and fire-breathing dragon, along with an visual epilogue instead of the text-only American version’s.
