Midway Arcade Brings Back the Classics for 99¢

Fancy loading your iPad up with Arcade classics Defender, Rampage, Spy Hunter, Joust and a few others for just 99¢ / 69p?

You have a chance to do exactly that thanks to Midway Arcade, actually Warner Bros (Midway seem to be in liquidation but fighting it).

For another 99¢ you can get Gauntlet, Gauntlett II and Wizard of Wor via in-app purchase and the nostalgia fest continues with APB (sadly no steering wheel provided), NARC and Total Carnage for a further 99¢.

They are pretty faithful ports, as far as we can tell, the controls are a bit sluggish sometimes, but some of that is down to the onscreen joystick. We like the 3D arcade lobby UI and some of the other arcade games (Air Hockey, Basketball, Pool and Roll Ball) are a nice bonus.

If this tickles your nostalgia fancy get on over to the App Store and grab Midway Arcade for its launch price.
