My wife actually likes that Pac-Man one. She said it's cute. I'm curious as to what the construction is on the cabinet itself, looks to be a safer plastic which is a great idea if this is meant for little kids. Should probably last a lot longer then the melamine garbage they currently put out. I'm also liking how it has several modes and an option for unlimited lives. Kids who get frustrated with normal game play will like that and it will actually help them hone their skills. Doubt I would buy one, my son said he wasn't interested in adding it to his collection, but believe it or not, I actually kind of like this one. Love those oversized buttons too.. IT IS CUTE!!

I collect pac-man related items. so i will probably get this also.

i like the custom settings too. i wonder what easy is, maybe 5 lives instead of 3.

also, i wonder if all 3 games have killscreens in them.
you could find out pretty easy with unlimited lives.

-------
not sure what you do with your machines.

i have had a gen 1 pac-man for 3+ years, and its still in mint condition.
my friend has a street fighter machine, same thing.

never had single problem or issue with those, and 2 countercades,
and 3 partycades, all in mint condition.

I don't see how that joystick can move.

Some dude on Facebook last night posted a picture of the Tron toy and said ďI canít wait to get this, I expect itíll be 300 bucks like the other ones.Ē We all had a good laugh at that.

i collect pac-man items.

also it has easy mode settings, so will be checking out the killscreens
for pac-man, galaga , and dig dug.

i've never gotten to the killscreen in dig dug, so if its there, that will be interesting.

the joystick will be a laugh though, same with the buttons.

Quick Review:
================
Primary Audience - Parents with young children [i don't have any]
Overview:
--------------
This fun little cabinet is another line for Arcade1up targeting very small children.
Maybe you don't want them playing on your 3/4 cabs and breaking them or, they are too big.
This is sized bigger than a partycade, and works well on the ground. This came with a tiny stool also (you assemble it), and it fits in the back for storage.
The back of this cabinet is open.
Its very sturdy, and unless you leave it outside or in sunlight, shouldn't fade or melt.
(i hope).
Anyways, the buttons are super comfortable and large. They used two buttons, because
they probably have this form factor for other games, even though most games only use 1 or none.
Games
==============
Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug
All are set to basic US default settings.

Settings:
============================
Pac-man has 3 - super easy, easy and normal
super easy - invincible (no collision), and slow movement (25%? of speed)
easy - invincible(no collison) and normal speed
Galaga - easy and normal
easy - invincible (no shots or collisions)
Dig Dug - easy and normal
easy - invincible (no collisions,, no rock deaths, fire deaths)
===============================
Controls
=========================
On/off
volume
House - HOME menu button
Big Red Large Ballltop joystick - with square (rotated 45 degree gate)
very comfortable, just takes a different grip for adults, but kids should
have no problem with it. its very responsive
2 large buttons - these are super comfortable, and resilient
Cabinet
=======================
Super durable, thick plastic.
Very light, no exposed screws or sharp edges.
Screen is sharp and bright.
Volume is loud enough but not too loud and ajdustable.
Runs on same MicroUSB adapter and plug (provided)

Verdict:
=================
Whether they are just beginning or a little older. You can start off
in the easy mode, and they can play as long as they want.
Once they get better they can go to the normal mode.
All games play exactly as they should on normal mode.

Adult note : Not sure if killscreens are there, will check it for the next 3 days.
Should you get it? - If you collect pac-man items, sure, why not.
If you want to 'train' yourself to get better, they are useful for that.
But this is mostly targeted for younger children.

I will post gameplay videos. Its fun using the 'training mode'.
I'm happy with the purchase.
I think its $280 or so at Walmart, Target, and other retailers.

Once I'm done with it, I will donate it a charity or a family with younger kids.
Good way to introduce some simple retro games to them.
Overall Grade 4/5
