Retro Games

It's a Blast from the Past

Retro video games bring back nostalgic memories of Saturday afternoons spent at the arcade, or sitting in front of your TV at home playing video games for hours after school. This collection of retro games is a blast from the past that will make you smile.

The first commercially sold, arcade-style video game was created in 1971 and called Computer Space. Much simpler than video games today, it used a black-and-white television for its display screen. In 1972 the first home console was released. It wasn't until 1975 that the home version of Atari's Pong was released, that icon of retro video games. Pong basically launched the entire video-game industry and its commercial success is largely responsible for gamers' desire to play retro arcade games today.

In this collection, you will find some classic pixelated games. 4096 Punch is an old-school boxing game that has you pick out a heavyweight contender, head to the ring, and get ready to fight. En Garde: The Curse of the Ninth is another arcade-style, heavily pixelated game that has you going sword-to-sword with your opponent. The game CP6 throws lots of obstacles between a Pac-Man-like creature and his home in this old-school platformer, while Retronoid is classic arcade. In Alpha Limit you can blast your way through the cosmos in a retro arcade space adventure.

Other games pair retro fun with current video game trends. Sparks Online is a mix of puzzle and match-3 gaming. Choose your difficulty than try to get the highest score. Jamble Legends focuses specifically on the match-3 style game. Pixel Crush Mania requires you to connect all of the chosen objects within a certain timeframe.
