Online Arcades With Free Flash Games

Free flash arcades may seem a little intimidating for a new user. If someone really wants to enjoy the entertainment that an online arcade may provide, then they just need to have a little extra help. Understanding the many different categories of games and who they may interest is probably the first step in actually enjoying arcade games.

I will start with a simple genre. The action genre is one of the most popular for flash games. Their premise can easily be viewed as just changes on a lot of the old classics. In fact, many just change the basic structure of the old Mario adventures to make for a quick and fun internet game. Action games are generally very easy to play too. They are often just based off of keyboard controls. You just press the right key to make your character move, grab coins, fight bad guys, etc. The concept should be easy to grasp and you’ll usually have multiple lives to get used to the interface.

Branching off from this would be shooter games. These are also very simple. They often just boil down to a shooting range with some cool effects. Most true shooters rely on using the mouse to move the crosshair and shoot all of the bad guys before they shoot you. This is another simple genre to understand, and any new user should be able to enjoy a little mindless fun on one of these. If you need justification, you can remember that playing shooting games helps develop your reaction speed and your eyesight.

Things start to get a little complicated from this point onwards. Another genre is the adventure game. There are actually a surprising number of good role-playing games that will give something extra to the player. Many of these are just a variant of good puzzle games. You will have to use logic to figure out how to solve a series of quests and puzzles in a fantasy world. Movement is usually keyboard based and you will benefit most from having a unique thinking process. Anyone who used to play the old 2D games should also feel a good sense of nostalgia.

Defense games are another popular genre. They can either be action or strategy based in nature. A defense game is based on one objective. You just have to protect your home, castle, anthill, temple, etc. from all of the bad guys who want to get in and destroy it. An action based defense game relies on your quick reflexes to throw little invaders around with your hand of god, or for you to quickly place your own defenders in the path of the invaders. There are several games that are based more on strategy. These present you with a variety of monsters. In these games, you will have to use several different structures and strategies to outlast the onslaught. You will receive points for each kill that can be used to upgrade the structures. I will warn you, these games are very addictive and you can easily lose several hours playing one.

These are just some of the types of arcade games available through standard online arcade websites. It would be impossible to cover every variation, but most will fall into this general set. May you have the best of luck with your future gaming.

Arcades for Restaurants and Hotels

Just about any hospitality business has a few coin-op machines lying around. These are not gambling devices I’m talking about (which is a whole other story), but electronic gaming devices, commonly known as video games. While their inclusion isn’t the main feature of your venue, you’ll notice a few of them lurking in some corner of nearly every kind of hospitality business.


Managing them is one of those jobs that is usually done by the short-straw drawer. Nobody goes around with the job title “arcade manager” so it falls to a side responsibility for the entertainment coordinator, the purchaser, or maybe even the custodians. If it falls to you, you have the opportunity to quietly build a little side enterprise out of it, given that you know your games.


Many people tend to trivialize the humble video game cabinet, but actually they are a quite lucrative profit generator for the small floor space. The “golden age” of video arcades – roughly 1980 to 1995 – saw the video game industry rise to the number-two most profitable industry in the United States, second only to the movie industry. Classic video games drew crowds and lines around the block, and spawned sequels and spin-off movies, cartoons and comics, and whole fiction genres. Arcade games made the fortunes of Atari, Sega, Nintendo, and many other tech companies that are still powerful today.


One consideration is the noise, as well as other environment concerns. Games are noisy, and while the manufacturer settings allow you to control the volume, a bank of arcade machines is best kept in a separate room to themselves. This room should be clean, relatively dust-free, very dry, and on the cool side. The internals of video game machines are just like what goes into your computer, with motherboards and chip sets, and they need to stay cool and dry. If the fans inside the cabinet get clogged with dust and dirt, they can cease to function, and then cause a chip to burn up. You would also want some supervision of the area, which can be as simple as having the security guard poke his nose in on them twice per shift. Like all coin-op vending machines, arcade games are frequently the target of vandalism and theft.


Another concern is the rise of personal laptop computers and cell phones. Indeed, why bother selling people games for a quarter per play when they have all the games they want for free on their personal electronic devices? This fear is actually totally groundless; ask any video game enthusiast and they will tell you that even the simplest game is more fun on an arcade cabinet than it is on a phone or laptop. Portable devices have drawbacks for gaming; they have small screens, tiny memory, low-quality sound, and the control interface ranges from fiddly to abysmal.


Most maintenance is left up to whoever you contracted with to rent the machines, similar to the vending machine situation. If your business follows that policy, you will have a service contract, and be responsible for damage, theft, vandalism, and all sorts of minor annoyances. Most business owners just pick this option, however, because it gets all the details out of their hair. The downside of using a service vendor for your games is, you’re only getting about 20% of the profits you could be getting!


Did you know that you can buy used arcade machines for as little as a mere ? Auctions all over the place move hundreds of machines per week, and most of the competition for them is hobbyists. For that price, who cares about maintenance? Buy it, run it and let it gobble quarters for you, then junk it and get another one. Of course, at the rock-bottom price, the game will usually require some refurbishing and repair. If you have an engineer on staff, they might jump at the opportunity, as many people with an electronic knack like to work with arcade machines for the novelty of it. Machines in better condition can fetch a price into 00, but by this time we’re talking about a four-player environment machine like a sit-down racing simulator.


The simple stand-up ‘upright’ cabinet or table-top ‘cocktail’ game takes up no more space than a refrigerator and can put that odd corner of your retail space which you never knew what to do with to work for you making you money. The upright cabinet is the cheapest, with not much more to it than a big wooden box, a circuit board, a screen, and controls. The cocktail models are the kind you still find in bars, with a table-oriented layout, very easy for two players to share from either side, and with a protective glass cover to prevent the obvious hazard of a spilled drink ruining the machine.


Arcade video games are experiencing a huge nostalgia run that is still mostly untapped. Anybody who was a child during the golden age of arcades will light up on seeing a really popular game from his or her childhood. They are not (and in fact never were) just for kids. Video games are an entertainment genre that spans all ages and cultures, as they are innocent, family-friendly fun that young and old alike from all walks of life can enjoy.


Furthermore, the really popular games from ages past have a great nostalgic draw. Twenty years ago, these games were a dime a dozen, but now they are so rare as to be sorely missed. Increasingly, if the original game machine is simply unavailable (there’s hundreds in this category), the game can be emulated. There is one project, MAME, the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator project, which is a Free Software project to maintain a single computer-platform emulator capable of playing game ROMs. This enables the restoration of original games whose owners have now gone out of business. These require any computer and monitor built into a cabinet and outfitted with appropriate controls. The emulating hobbyists have driven down the cost of supplying arcade classic games down to nearly nothing, and ensures that our history of electronic entertainment can be preserved for generations yet.

As technological advances and constant developments in the world of gaming bring virtual entertainment to new levels, the leading supplier of arcade machines, Bespoke Arcades take a look back at the legacy of the craft.

The first arcade games were seen in the 1920s in amusement parks such as Coney Island in New York. Ball-toss games and shooting galleries were the earliest form of the pastime, but soon progressed to include coin-op machines which would give a fortune reading, or play mechanical music.  In the 1930s, the first pinball machine was created, and worked on a set of springs and magnets, a far cry from the electric pinball machines that would replace it in the early 1970s.

In 1971, the first incarnation of an electronic coin-op game was invented by American university students. Not long after, Atari was established and brought video arcade games such as Pacman, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong to shopping centres, cinemas and bars all over America and the UK. The craze was to live well through to the 1990s.

Phil Patsias, from Bespoke Arcades, the firm which provides high quality arcade machines and arcade cabinets, said, “I remember playing these games when I was young and being mesmerised by how entertaining they were. The games and technology may have changed, but at Bespoke Arcades, we are still as passionate about video arcades games as ever.”

As enhancements were made in the field of gaming, home entertainment systems became common, with multiple-player gaming bringing together groups of friends for whole days at a time.

Mr Patsias added, “While small and compact is sometimes best, when it comes to video arcade games, nothing beats our range of games and arcade cabinets.

This is how they were meant to be enjoyed, and with Bespoke Arcades, the gaming is just as beautiful as it can get. The casing is nothing short of pure excellence and luxury.”

The firm’s range of innovative gaming solutions have earned them pages in major publications, and the arcade machines themselves have taken prime spot in many celebrities’ homes.

Mr Patsias added, “As we provide an entirely bespoke service, each arcade game is made to your specific requirements and desires. Products like our Synergy table were fantasy consoles of your childhood, but with our service can easily become a reality.”

Take a look at the Bespoke Arcades website: http://www.bespoke-arcades.co.uk.

Bespoke Arcades is firmly established as the finest producer of high-end arcade products purposely designed for the home, office or games room. They offer individually tailored arcade cabinets incorporating a wide range of designs and arcade games options. As the No 1 producer of high-end arcade products, their cabinets can be purchased through the most prestigious outlets across the UK including Harrods, Selfridges and Hamleys.
