They just keep coming and coming and coming and coming...
Opps, sorry, I
forgot I was writing a review and not playing a game from the free
arcade game pack called Arcade! Classic Arcade Pack.
Anyways, do you remember the good old days (well, actually I wasn't
alive then, but the for the purposes of this review, pretend I
was;-), when arcades used super advance technology to produce
great classics such as Pac-Man, Asteroids, Snake, Space Invaders,
Tetris, and the all wonderful Pong? You don't? Well,
even through a lot of you are so stuck up with your fancy GameBoys
and Xboxes...the old games can actually be a whole lot of fun...
Out of all the games in this program,
this one has to have the worst graphics. The asteroids are
just jagged white lines formed into a round circle, your ship is a
moving triangle, and your bullets are little white dots.
However, who said this is a bad thing? This is a game that
is extremely addictive. Also, for anyone who played this game
as a kid, prepare to have the wonderful memories of the days when
the graphics were horrible and the games were too addicting for
their own good.
Sorry to say, but for all of you hoping
for the classic snake, keep looking. For the rest of us,
this is one great snake game. Snake is where you are a snake
(which looks like a caterpillar with lots of segments) who must
eat the little black blobs that magically show up on the
screen. Each time you "eat" one of the little
black blobs you grow bigger and bigger. The only rules are
that you can't crash into the wall, or yourself. As for the
graphics of this game, it is still the same old Snake game we know
and love, but with a shiny new background, and blocks that are
rounded smoothly, instead of roughly. ;-)
Well...I never really liked this game very
much...the aliens keep coming and coming and coming and coming
and never ever stop! Well, since this is the original Space Invaders, don't expect much from the graphics. As for how
you play the game, you simply shoot aliens that for some odd
reason just keep moving back and forth with you ship (well, the
ship looks more like a block with an upright triangle on the top, but
Pong...is well...ummm...pong! You
try to score a point against your computer opponent, by making the
block...I mean ball...get past the computers rectangle...I mean
paddle... Need I say more?
Other than Snake, this is my favorite
game and other than the point that this Pac-Man is pretty much
the original, there really isn't too much more to say. And
if you don't know what Pac-Man is, give your X-Box to me and buy a
Atari at a pond shop :-)
Yet another game that all of you know,
however this is not the original Tetris, but a remake. The
background and interface are well designed, but the sound is
nothing special. This would be one awesome Tetris game if
there were music in the background.
Before I end this review, I must also note that on all of the
games, you have a chance to get on the high score list, and that
for almost all of the games, you can download a flash version of the
game to put on your website for free.
In conclusion, this is a great pack of games and everyone should
go ahead and download this, since it isn't that big of a
