Old School Arcade Titles On Consoles

Porting classic arcade games into consoles has become

the latest rage in the gaming industry. The trend

clearly affirms the fact that arcade games are not


The gamers are not an elderly bunch of people who grew

up on these titles. Kids are also addicted to it. The

games have been revamped graphically but never shed

the addictive game play which, of course, is the part

and parcel of every game.

Arcade games have not been graphically interesting,

but this move successfully negates the fact that the

popularity of a game largely depends on its game play

and not seemingly awe-inspiring graphics.

This phenomenon has also triggered a resurrection of

arcade games and made it popular among online gamers.

Arcade games are also being ported into handheld

consoles like PSP.

This clearly indicates the popularity of arcade


Some of the ported titles are:

Geometry Wars – The game was a classic when it was

released back in 80’s. The upgrade features high end

particle physics, digital sound, new special effects,

a new scrolling area and high end graphics.

It is set in the far reaches of the galaxy where you

battle hordes of vile, neon blazoned aliens. It also

lets you choose between the old version and the

updated version.

Pac-man – The all time classic has been upgraded with

high definition graphics. The game still retains the

original game play and the charming retro look.

The newer version features 250 levels of pure action

packed fun. The game retains the original music and

sound score that the fans remember so well.
