Over 1,100 New Arcade Machines Added to the Internet Arcade

The Internet Arcade, our collection of working arcade machines that run in the browser, has gotten a new upgrade in its 4th year. Advancements by both the MAME emulator team and the Emscripten conversion process allowed our team to go through many more potential arcade machines and add them to the site.

The majority of these newly-available games date to the 1990s and early 2000s, as arcade machines both became significantly more complicated and graphically rich, while also suffering from the ever-present and home-based video game consoles that would come to dominate gaming to the present day. Even fervent gamers might have missed some of these arcade machines when they were in the physical world, due to lower distribution numbers and shorter times on the floor.

A somewhat beefy machine and very modern browser will be required to run these games. In general, pressing the 5 key will insert coins, 1 and 2 will start 1 or 2 player games, and the arrow and spacebar keys will control the games themselves.

Let the games… continue!

Thanks, as always, to Dan Brooks, for maintaining the Emularity system to allow near-instant upgrading of emulators and additions of new platforms to the Internet Archive collections.

    I never thought I would be one to ogle the classic, but I see my age as these games speak to me more than the current gaming technology out now. Video games have advanced a lot and I can’t help but admire the arcade games early beginnings. I great appreciation for the classics!!!

    While all the game elements do seem to download, I cannot get any of the games I tried to start up on either of two different platforms:
    (1) Firefox 60.0.2 on Microsoft Windows 10
    (2) Edge on Microsoft Windows 10

    On a third platform,
    (3) Silk 68.4.9.3440.85.10 on Fire OS 5.6.2.0
    I’ve seen at least one game start up, but there is no keyboard or buttons for me to use.
