Weekly Online Arcade Tournament
« on: June 07, 2017, 06:00:36 AM »
There is an online arcade tournament featured each week at: https://www.arcadeicons.com

Each week they feature typically an 80s arcade game and you can register and post your score as well as learn lots of strategies for the games. The winner chooses the next week's game. This gives you a chance to explore a new game you might not have played much before. MAME, arcade, online etc are pretty much accepted ways to play and it's all for fun.

Taking a game that is entirely riduculous seriously, in the pursuit of a high score, is what it's all about!

If you'd never played Pooyan, for example, give it a try.

Good idea. Looks like the last game just ended so depending on what game is next I might give it a shot.

Is there a website that reviews 80s Arcade games? I know websites with great database and flyers...but what about reviews?
Thanks

I'm not aware of sites that do reviews of the arcade games/machines themselves but you may find videos on YouTube for some games.
