People have been bemoaning the death of the arcade for years now, and as they slowly and sadly disappear from our streets, what are us dedicated arcade fans supposed to do? Sure you can turn your phone or tablet into a mini-arcade but what if you still crave the real thing?
Luckily, arcade machine supremos Liberty Games have come to the rescue with their three new stunning arcade cabinets. The Galaxy II range builds on the already hugely popular Galaxy range of arcade machines, however this time around they come not only with new graphics, but also more games and more importantly a lower price tag!
For stand-up style arcade machines you now have a clear-cut choice between the 80’s and the 90’s, with the Galaxy Cosmic 2 having a vertically mounted monitor to show off sixty 80’s classic games in all their glory (think centipede, 1942, Phoenix, Pac Man and many more). Whereas the Galaxy Cosmic 3 has a horizontally mounted 4:3 monitor to show three hundred 90’s games in all their glory (think Street Fighter, KOF, Pang etc.).
Oh and did I mention that both of these machines have cool illuminated arcade buttons?
If you’re looking for a cocktail style arcade machine then the Galaxy 2 has the same classic games as the Galaxy Cosmic 2 in a groovy retro style cocktail cabinet.
All in all each of these machines ticks all the boxes and starting from just £995, they come in pretty well priced for arcade machines.
