Arcade games are fun no matter how old you are. These things can get boring occasionally but give it a few minutes or hours of pause and then you’re back at it again. That’s how amazing arcade games are.
Some of the best iPad arcade games are Angry Birds and Temple Run. Yeah, add Fruit Ninja to that list but then, there’s also a bunch of other games that you might have missed: games from the past that had you glued to your computer.
Best iPad Arcade Games
#1. Nyan Cat: Lost In Space
The guy who created Nyan Cat said the game was “Awesome!” so you know what kind of an arcade game this really is. Besides, the four and a half stars do justify its claim.
With this game, you get to play with a celebrated flying cat. Eat ice-cream, drink milk and jump onto platforms. Make sure to avoid angry dogs. While playing the game, collect as many coins as possible to buy attractive items.
Select from multiple game modes, where you will play with Nyan Cat’s evil foe Tac Nayn. Make the best use of power-ups like rockets, bubbles to help you thwart your enemies.
#2. Pac-Man Lite
Ah! Pac-Man can never get old. That’s why you find that Pac-Man Lite is one of the most popular iPad arcade games ever. Gobble up the pac-dots before the monsters gobble you up!
You need to guide PAC-MAN through the mazes and eat off all the dots to advance to the next stage. To stay ahead of the pack, go your all out for maximum scores and higher levels.
You will get an extra life at 10.000 points!
Copter was one of my favorite addictions in school through college. iCopter, its iPad version, became an instant hit when it was launched on the App Store. It continues to be a very popular app even today.
You need to guide your ‘copter through a dangerous cave which is full of huge obstacles. It has three difficulty levels, which are perfectly crafted to keep your penchant alive for long. The five different backgrounds and retro graphics make this arcade game truly vintage.
#4. Ghosts’n Goblins
I have had a great run with “Ghosts’n Goblins” as it’s such an insanely entertaining game.
To start things off, you need to equip Sir Arthur with lethal weapons and armor by unlocking chests through the levels. Then, get into epic boss fights against a mighty dragon, Cyclops, and devils.
The game gesture two modes: casual mode and classic mode. While the former doesn’t require you to stretch your skill, the latter is very intense. So, decimate your enemies and collect a lot of achievements to rule the leaderboards!
#5. 1942 MOBILE
This is yet another classic arcade game from CAPCOM. 1942 Mobile offers exciting top-down shooter experience.
The game has two modes. While the casual mode is for the folks who want the game to be less challenging, the classic mode is for the ones who want the play to be extremely challenging.
Go your all out to destroy your enemies and collect power-ups as you shoot down your enemy planes. Along the way, make sure to remain safe and dodge your opponents. Put your best effort to accomplish 100% kill rate!
