Remember the good old days of retro arcade games? Well, they are back to appeal to fans young and old in a new plug n play format from Jakks designed to bring the anarchic simplicity of joystick controlled gaming to a new generation.
10 arcade favourites including: Space Invaders, Bubble Bobble, Alpine Ski, Tube-It and more can be brought to life once again via your TV, in the comfort of your own front room for frantic family fun!! Save your quarters for laundry and parking meters as you simply plug the controller into the TV and are good to go!
With authentic graphics and sounds, you’ll feel like you’ve been warped back in time to the old arcade halls as you rack up high scores on these addictive blasts from the past!
The voice of Wreck-It Ralph in the forthcoming movie, John C Reilly, was recently quoted at Comic Con as being a huge fan of Space Invaders: “I’m dating myself by saying this, but I was the test audience for SPACE INVADERS,” he admits. “I remember when that was the first game, that wasn’t a pinball game, that came out. I spent a lot of money on SPACE INVADERS, in the form of quarters of course. I have a family now, so I don’t have a lot of time to play video games.”
Available now from Argos, TV Games retail for around £19.99.
