Are you an old school gamer? Miss your old Atari 2600 with games like Space Invaders, Pacman, Frogger and even Pong? Now you can relive those days by playing them here on our website! Below are the games we have available. No quarters required, just click on the game picture below and away you go, playing just like you did in the 80's.
The object of the game is to move the small yellow blob (Pacman) around and chomp up the white dots. Oh, and watch out for Blinky, Pinky, Inkey, and Clyde! Instructions: Use your arrow keys to move Up, Down, Left and Right. Press "M" to Mute/Unmute sound, and "P" to Pause/Unpause the game.
You are the frog and your task is to make it across the road without being hit by traffic, and finally make it across the river by skilfully hitching a ride on the floating logs. Sounds simple enough, but it's the end pockets which are the hardest. Watch out for those pesky crocodiles! Instructions: Use your directional keys to move.
The story: Donkey Kong has stolen Mario's girlfriend and taken her to the top of a steel structure. You move Mario over girders and up ladders, leap over tumbling barrels, dodge lethal fireballs and jump onto fast-moving elevators, trying to rescue Mario's girlfriend from Donkey Kong. Instructions: Space Bar to jump. Use your left/right arrow keys to move from left to right. To climb ladders use your Up arrow.
You can't get anymore retro than this classic shoot-em-up game. Yes, the graphics are chunky - a far cry from X-Box or PS2 standards - but at the time it seemed like 'space-age' technology. Instructions: Space Bar = Fire. Move Left / Right using your arrow keys.
This is one of the all time classic games and was released in the United States in 1986. The game's popularity was tremendous, and many were instantly hooked - it was a software blockbuster. Instructions: Use your mouse to click 'Play', then choose a level to start at. Up arrow to rotate shapes, Down/Left/Right arrow keys to move shapes, press P to pause.
In the years after Star Wars, anything involving outer space, speedy interstellar craft and dangerous battles was considered golden. Into this arena of sci-fi fantasy came Atari’s Asteroids, one of the most enduring hits in video game history. The controls allow you to rotate left and right, thrust, warp into hyperspace, and most importantly, to fire your blaster at the rocky menaces. Instructions: Use your mouse to click start, Space bar = Fire, Up arrow key to thrust, Left/Right arrow keys to move left/right.
Released in 1984 by Nintendo, Duck Hunt was one of the first games on the NES platform to use the 'light gun'. The basic idea is pretty simple - you're a duck hunter armed with a pistol and your trusty dog. You have three shots to shoot one or two ducks each round. After ten rounds of duck hunting, you go to the shooting range and shoot at clay pigeons for another ten rounds. Instructions: Click your mouse to fire your pistol.
Pong, while not the first videogame, was the first coin-op arcade game and the first mainstream videogame that was available to almost everyone. The origins of Pong lie with an abstract tennis game created with an old oscilloscope and some vacuum tubes by Willy Higinbotham way back in 1958. "Pong" was a pretty simple game with simple rules - hit the ball across the playing field and try your best to hit it past your opponents paddle on the other side. Instructions: Use your mouse to guide your paddle up and down.
This game will test your memory, and, ultimately, your sanity. The object of the game is to memorize Simon's sequence of lights. On that note, does anyone remember those Simon commercials in the '80s? How could you forget! Instructions: Use your mouse to click start and click the color bars.
