Classic Arcade Games

When you think of arcade games, the thought may invoke imaginations of pinball machines and other stone-cold classics. Space Invaders, for example, a title that revolutionized the market. Space Invaders is from the golden age of arcade gaming, the late 1970s – early 1980s.

However, these days arcade games are mostly games with intuitive controls, fast gameplay, and increasing difficulty. There are plenty of new games today that fit this description, many of which you can play here in your web browser.

Modern Arcade Games

Fireboy and Watergirl 6 is an excellent example of a game that incorporates arcade mechanics with modern co-operative puzzle-solving and gameplay. Getting Over It is a neat Scratch game based on the original Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy. And who doesn't like a good old-fashioned game of Pac Xon?

Music games have always been a popular addition to the modern arcade. Friday Night Funkin' is an arcade-style music game with viral success. The 90s aesthetic and original music give you that arcade experience from the comfort of your web browser.

Retro Games

In the early 1990s, arcade games saw a resurgence with the release of Street Fighter 2. A slew of popular games with iconic soundtracks and addictive gameplay soon followed, namely in the fighting and racing genre. Arcade gaming was cool once again. Some memorable titles from this time include Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and Ridge Racer.

Games like Jet Rush and Color Tunnel clearly take inspiration from the wacky arcade-style racers of the 90s. Then there are mobile games like Mole Heist that completely redefine 'arcade' with hypercasual gameplay and incredibly addictive mechanics.
