    "When it comes to arcade games, nothing is more iconic than a racing game. This looks like a instant classic to me. It has great graphic and the music is awesome. There seems to be a lot of variety so it would never get tiring. I would pay a reasonable amount of money to have this arcade style racing game on my phone."

    "N.O.V.A. Legacy isn't really an arcade game, it's a first person shooter for a mobile phone. However, it's controls are pretty good and the graphics are nice. I'd check it out if you're into that sort of thing."

    "I'm not sure who considers fallout shelter and arcade game, but whoever it is they're possibly mentally deficient and definitely wrong. It's one of those idle non-games, with no real gameplay except "watch numbers go up" woo. I can do the same with my calculator..."

    "The game is fun but the levels are too hard. Also we have only 3 magic flies and to buy one w e need 55 gems. Please increase the number of magic flies in the beginning and decrease the amount of 1 magic fly. Also ads pop up for no reason. If you add these changes then I will give you 5 stars. "

    "What a letdown, Sky Force could be such a good game, but you need to play again and again the same levels in order to get stars to upgrade your plane, or you have to pay. I have bought the booster to get 2x stars, but it's not enough. Grind, grind, grind, or pay, then still grind. What was once a great game is now a grind fest, money munching, shadow of its former self but with better graphics. "

    "This is an app for Apple products, released in 2015. It costs 99 cents to download. This is a fun app with 10 arcade-style games, including Air Hockey and Arcade Basketball. There are two other game packs available for 99 cents each, which is a fair price to pay for the Fantasy Game Pack and the Action Game Pack. If you are waiting in line or have to chill for a short while, this is an interesting way to pass the time, but still be able to shut it off quickly and return your attention to whatever is at hand."

    "I have always liked Pacman so this is a fun game for me. The puzzles are just like the original game which is great for nostalgia purposes. I can play for hours and hours as I do love the game. I find it challenging. It's really useful if you have a long plane ride, train ride or commute in general. The time will pass quite quickly as you're playing. It's challenging enough to keep you engaged as you move through the levels. I do like the tournament style play and the daily gift they offer; it provides more of an incentive to play. "

    "When I was a kid I dreamed about having a jet pack one day. I thought we would all be flying around on jet packs throughout the sky by now. Well, I can still do that virtually with Jetpack Joyride. This is an amazing game with beautiful graphics that will really test your reflexes. There are some really cool jet packs to fly and you can even battle with your friends. I can spend hours playing Jetpack Joyride. So who needs a real life Jetpack when you can have more fun playing Jetpack Joyride."

    "I grew up playing Space Invaders, and when I saw Space Invaders: Next Generation, I had to download it. It was fun and I like that it has weekly updates, so there is always something new. It is a new game, so there are still lots of glitches to be worked out and the onscreen ads are really annoying. I enjoy it, but it is not the same as the classic Space Invaders. "

The refreshing open-world setting allowed me to explore the game world at my leisure, making the game a lot of fun for when I didn't want to be confined to a narrow racetrack. The freedom to go where I wanted was appealing both as a racing fan as well as someone who plays games in other genres."
