Snippet: Welcome to Ollie’s Arcade ☇

The Iconfactory’s Ged Maheux:

Relive fond memories of your favorite classic arcade or electronic handheld games with Ollie’s Arcade – a fun collection of retro-styled mini games that are challenging and simple to play.

All of us here at the Iconfactory love the classic video games we played in our youth. Many hours were spent in front of titles like Asteroids, Moon Patrol, and Battlezone, as well as cherished handheld electronic games like Mattel Football, Simon, and Merlin. Ollie’s Arcade recaptures a little bit of this magic and gives players a chance to turn their iPhone or iPad into a retro gaming experience.

Two of the games in Ollie’s Arcade, Ollie Soars and Tranquility Touchdown – started life as simple Easter eggs in Twitterrific. They’ve been polished and improved and we’ve added an all-new game that’s our take on the classic Snake. All of Ollie’s mini-games are easy to learn and designed to be accessible for everyone. You can even play with your favorite game controller or via wireless keyboard.

I’m glad to see Ollie has a new home—the app is a free download and Ollie Soars is included, while Snake and Tranquillity Touchdown are a one-time $1.99 in-app purchase each.
