Save Your Tokens: Midway Ports 10 Classic Arcade Games to iOS
The full list, as described by WB, includes the following:
- Spy Hunter: Race down a freeway in an armed sports car and destroy enemies while protecting civilian vehicles;
- Rampage: Reduce the city to rubble as gigantic monsters George (a King-Kong-like gorilla), Lizzie (a Godzilla-like dinosaur/lizard), and Ralph (a giant werewolf);
- Defender: Defeat waves of invading aliens while protecting astronauts in this 2D shooting game;
- Joust: While riding a flying ostrich, fight to defeat enemy knights riding buzzards;
- Root Beer Tapper: As the bartender, serve beer and collect empty mugs and tips without letting the thirsty patrons’ patience expire;
- Arch Rivals: In this Basket Brawl, outscore opponents as a crowd pleaser, rebound king, a defensive giant and more;
- Skill-Based Games: Beat your friends’ top scores in Pool, Air Hockey, Roll Ball and Basketball.
That's six titles, plus four skill-based games, for a grand total of 10. WB is asking $0.99 for the entire lot, along with $0.99 each for two optional game packs, including the Fantasy Game Pack (Gauntlet 1+2 and Wizard of Wor) and Action Game Pack (APB, NARC, Total Carnage). If you grab them all, that works out to 16 games for a little less than $3, or about an hour's worth of quarters back in the day.
