Standing at just under 4 ft. tall, each Arcade1Up machine is loaded with different classic arcade games and comes with an immersive full-colour, hi-resolution display and authentic sounds.
The cabinets feature the original arcade games’ control and button configurations, eliminating any guesswork about gameplay. Add-ons include a stool and riser, allowing for the creation of a full arcade experience that fits perfectly in a den, office or apartment, and enables hours of fun-filled gaming.
For those with smaller spaces, Counter-Cades are ideal to place on a desk or tabletop to display and play, the perfect item for those wishing to have a sizable collection, while Party-Cades can be played on a table or countertop, hung over a door or on a wall.
