The classic arcade game that started it all is the twin-stick shooter Robotron 2084. Created by Eugene Jarvis, this game was a classic in its time. Despite its limited graphical power, this game was able to create amazing effects with the power of the player's imagination. Its silky controls and ramping difficulty were ideal for arcade action, and it is considered one of Jarvis' masterpieces. The game was followed a few years later by another sequel called Galaga '88.
Arcade games were once long nights spent in front of the cabinet, pouring quarters into it and trying to beat your friend's high score. However, with new technologies, arcade games have become a modern day experience. You can now play many games on your home console. The most popular games today are those that require strategy and flexibility.
