Playing Old Arcade Games

leave a comment

As we move into game design and video games, play through a bunch of these old-school Arcade Games.

Here’s how:

  • Find a game on the list that you want to play
  • Click on its icon
  • Click on the “run” button to the right
  • Pressing the (number) 5 key will insert a coin, and pressing 1 or 2 will represent Player 1 Start and Player 2 Start. Generally, arrow keys are used for joystick directions or to act like a paddle, and the CTRL, ALT/OPTION, and SPACE keys are for various buttons.
  • You might need to experiment and help each other out

Think about game dynamics — what makes a game fun and what makes a game boring?
