Arcade Park for Series 60 1.4

Revive the legendary games of the past


  • Eight classic games
  • Plenty of gaming options
  • High scores


  • Still weak graphically
  • No two-player options


I used to love those bundles of games you could buy for Spectrum, C64, Amiga, etc., where you could pick up four or five classics in the same pack for about 5 bucks. I once even had a Game Boy cartridge with 150 games on it. Arcade Park is a similar affair, this time offering eight top games from yesterday on one download.

The package includes Arcade Ball, Asteroids, Rushman, Digger, Gold Hunter, Galaxy Invaders, Real Tanx and Riverside Assault. You can read detailed descriptions of each of them in the developer's description below, but let me tell you now that each of them is a real classic, and most have been enhanced from theire original form by the introduction of crisp new graphics.

All of the games feature some kind of options for changing game modes, or playing around with the difficulty settings, though disappointly, there's a lack of two-player offerings. As always with these games, there are lots of bonuses and different types of enemies to keep things varied. You also get a hall of fame and records chart for the challenge of getting your name up in lights.

If you remember these retro game from back in the day, or even if you don't, Arcade Park makes for an interesting diversion.

The Arcade Park collection is meant to revive the legendary games of the past, popular with millions of users. It includes the following games: Arcade Ball, Asteroids, Rushman, Digger, Gold Hunter, Galaxy Invaders, as well as military games Real Tanx and Riverside Assault.

In Arcade Ball the player's consciousness is bifurcate: one half turns into a small but very quick ball, and the other one – into an imperturbable platform which begins to order the light-minded ball about in every possible way and thrash it. And the ball, having loafed enough among hostile blocks, returns to the home platform time and again.

Asteroids – everlasting cosmic confrontation between the few and the many. A small interstellar reconnaissance spaceship not only gets in a thick ring of asteroids, but also faces aggressively inclined inhabitants there. Will the brave terrestrials survive? Everything depends only on dexterity and attention.

Rushman – a harmless furry animal headed for narrow streets of the native town to get some refreshments. Anyone can hurt the little dude, and even cook him for dinner. But eating a jinxed fruit turns out hero into a terrible fanged animal that no one can confront. Roarrr!

A descendant of Scandinavian knights, giant moles of antiquity and the Yeti, Digger goes underground. He is quick as a lightning, a portable annihilator is installed in his helmet, and his hands just cannot help reaching for diamonds. Snatch quickly, or else it'll run away.

Adventure-lover and enthusiast for others' gold, Gold Hunter enters a secret multi-level depository of the planet's gold reserve. On the brave dodger's belt, the BFT-5000 hangs, that can burn right through the floor, and the entire Earth security service is on his trail. Will the hero be able to get out of the trap into which he drove himself? Time and Security Commander's monitors will show.

Ten years ago, despite grave forecasts of analysts and science fiction writers, humanity managed to repulse the attack of the alien race called Galaxy Invaders by convention. The invaders' advance-guard was defeated, but it also became clear that the victory was just a warm-up before a real battle. The Supreme Parliament of the Earth made a decision to deliver a preventive blow on the aliens' home planet. For ten years, the terrestrials' fighters raced in the depths of space and finally reached the first outposts of the invaders.

Real Tanx. Unexampled frosts that befell the continent halted the enemy infantry's advance, but armored divisions of the still unidentified enemy smashed the national defense on all fronts and entered cities. Appearance of invaders strangely coincided with different natural anomalies outside the reach of logical explanation. On the other hand, the captain of the surviving tank brigade of the city defenders understands that only a miracle can save the staff. So he accepts the rules of the game.

Riverside Assault. General of Peacemaking Forces located in valley of the Congo River is sick and tired of accounting to the capital for Red Cross helicopters and entire provisions trucks constantly disappearing in the area. The Commander of a squadron of modern fighters is ordered to detect and neutralize the elusive enemy. The mission is complicated by the complex relief and interruptions in fuel supply.
