Default Retro Classics: Tabletop Collection 1 [universal]




Hello people. I am Rob from Beats N' Bobs and I am happy to announce a collection of some of the best retro tabletop/ handheld games from the 80's.
All these games are perfectly re-created to the very last detail with some minor exceptions for playability reasons. If you haven't got any of these already then this collection works out better value than having them separately. Galaxy Invader 1000 and Astro Wars has been very well reviewed seperately and have been featured on Retro Asylum and Retro Gamer magazine. In this collection, they all have high score tables for all levels on 3 of the 4 games (4th one is a simulation of a mechanical game). If you are into Game Center, scores all get saved there automatically as well. All the three VFD simulated games have i-Cade support as well and that works very well indeed. If you ever had these games or ever wanted to but couldn't, now you can. Check out the screenshots.
Thanks!
Rob

Jet Fighters, El Grincho Vs. Snowman, and Blip are the are his only retro games that don't support the iCade.

I already bought all of the retro games , but I was wondering: are all the standalone versions of these games going to receive Game Center high scores as well?

Anybody on the fence should go for it! Astro Wars is worth the money on it's own. Invader From Space is fun (and very colorful), Galaxy Invader 1000 is a good game, and Blip is okay if you can get your girlfriend (or somebody) to play a couple games with you.

Love these old VFD games from my childhood and iCade support is appreciated. My holy grail would be to have Galaxian 2 (Entex/Futuretronics 1981) converted for iOS.

There is a 2 player mode (where one person controls an attacking alien) or regular single player mode that plays similar to arcade game Galaxian. Has 8 columns and 12 rows giving lots of playing room and 3 colors.

+1000000 Absolutely. Galaxian 2 and Crazy Climber, for sure. I still have Galaxian 2 in working condition, but would love an iOS version of any/all of the Entex tabletop games, including the catridge-based AdventureVision system.
