Arcade1Up Home Arcade Cabinets ultimate Father’s Day gift for the man cave?

Arcade1Up is a luxury arcade machine for your home. Large scale replica copies of original arcade cabinets come flat-packed a fantastic Father’s Day gift to build and play.

Featuring the original artwork and styling of the classic cabinets from the Golden Age of Gaming, the machines are stocked with legendary titles such as Space Invaders, Asteroids, Street Fighter II and Rampage.

The vision of US toy company Tastemakers, Arcade1Up started off as a passion project for CEO Scott Bachrach and his team. The vision was to replicate the feeling of playing in the arcades and pizza parlours of their youth… something they felt lacking on today’s console and handheld versions. Roll ahead to today, and the machines have met with critical acclaim, winning the prestigious TECH TOY OF THE YEAR AWARD at New York Toy Fair.

"Arcade1Up will transport you back to an era of button-mashing, neon lights and hours of addictive gaming fun," said Scott Bachrach, CEO of Tastemakers, LLC. "It is a unique experience and truly brings back retro gaming the way it was meant to be played!"

¾ scale (full-size when used with an optional riser), they come with authentic controls (including rotary sticks, rollerballs and joysticks) and each machine features multiple titles - the original-code versions of the games – complete with techniques and tactics to learn, hidden features to exploit. So, if you could master manoeuvres in Space Invaders, exploit using the edge of the screen in Asteroids or rack-up the extra lives in Defender back in the day… there’s nothing stopping you living that dream again!

The cabinets are priced from £299 each with the following titles:

Atari’s Asteroids Cabinet:
Asteroids, Tempest, Major Havoc, Lunar Lander
