Midway Arcade lets you enjoy some great arcade games of the past conveniently on your iPhone or iPad, and features several Midway arcade classics, like air hockey, basketball shoot, and pool. Growing up in the 80’s, trips to the arcade to play Asteroids, Defender, Joust, Space Invaders and other arcade games was a regular and happily anticipated occurrence.
Little did I know then that I would be playing those greats like Defender and Joust on my iPhone 30 years later. Oh, how far we have come since then — but, that is exactly where we are now. Midway Arcade is an iOS Universal game app that features 6 Midway classic arcade games, the 2 very best in my opinion are Defender and Joust. The remaining 4 are okay (Spy Hunter, Rampage, Root Beer Tapper, and Arch Rivals). Some control setups and games play better than others, but of all games played Defender and Joust performed the best; however, be sure to play these on the iPhone in landscape mode and not portrait, for best results. Besides the classic video games, you also get basketball shoot, pool, air hockey and roll ball (skee ball). Pool, basketball shoot and air hockey are mediocre to poor in performance, but roll ball is quite fun.
There are also 2 additional packs of 3 arcade classic video games you can purchase, each for only $0.99. Game pack 1 includes: NARC, Total Carnage, and APB, and game Pack 2 includes: Gauntlet, Gauntlet II, and Wizard of Wor — all Midway arcade video game classics. While I have not yet tried this app out on my iPad, it plays decent on the iPhone, but I am guessing it will perform way better on the iPad. Again, Defender and Joust are worth the $0.99 for the app alone, so anything else included in this game app should be considered “gravy.” Midway Arcade is a nice offering for the iPhone and iPad and brings back some really fun memories of wasting time playing video games — back when times were a lot less complicated.
