Tastemakers LLC's Arcade1Up the leader in home retro gaming entertainment, celebrates its latest milestone during CES with nearly 3 million arcade machines sold in less than three years, which according to our research is more arcade machines sold in its category than in the '80s and '90s combined.

Here it is courtesy of Arcade1Up: the Atari Legacy CENTIPEDE® Edition home arcade machine, for the first time in a form factor shaped just like the original classic arcade cabinet!

"We are proud to have built a whole new category of gaming," said Scott Bachrach , CEO, Tastemakers, LLC and Arcade1Up . "Arcade culture was such an important part of history, and with Arcade1up , you can relive that era and build your very own at-home arcade."

In 2021, Arcade1Up saw an 80% growth in sales year over year, largely supported by its expansion into new categories with the Infinity Game Table and its Arcade1Up Jr line.

  • Infinity Game Table (IGT) revolutionizes the board game industry which had been an analog experience for decades until now. With an immersive around-the-table experience, IGT features a never-before-seen touch screen and online experience with haptic feedback. Since its release earlier this year, the library of games available in the IGT store has more than doubled and now includes 40+ games such as Monopoly, Scrabble, Clue, Ticket to Ride and Pandemic, and continues to grow with ongoing updates.
  • Arcade1Up Jr (JR) A new way for kids to hone their motor skills. Until now, kids' playsets have been linear, and lacked a deeper level of interaction. JR is an innovative line of arcade machines with adjustable game modes and custom-developed games in a completely new form factor specifically designed for kids.

To celebrate nearly 3 million arcade machines sold , Arcade1Up is announcing at CES the expansion of its Legacy Edition Line, one of its top-selling lines , and the introduction of the Arcade1Up Pro Series .

The Legacy Edition Line is Arcade1Up 's evergreen category which offers fans the most value in a single machine. In 2022, the Arcade1Up Legacy Edition arcades will feature Wi-Fi for online cooperative gameplay or high score leaderboards as well as over-the-air updates. Each Legacy Edition machine will feature 14 games, vs the 12 games in 2021 machines. The following Legacy titles are slated to be available in spring 2022.

  • BANDAI Legacy Arcade Game - PAC-MANIA Edition
  • MIDWAY Legacy Arcade Game - Mortal Kombat ® 30th Edition
  • ATARI Legacy Arcade Game - Centipede ® Edition

Good Gamer Announces Launch of Three New Puzzle Games on the Google Play Store

Good Gamer Entertainment Inc. (TSXV: GOOD) (OTCQB: GGAMF) ("Good Gamer" or the "Company"), a multifaceted play-to-earn game and platform developer, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Good Gamer Corp., has launched three new Android puzzle games: Cube Crush 2022 Dice Match N' Merge and Pop Blast Puzzle Game . The new games are now available for download in the Google Play Store.

Good Gamer Entertainment Inc. logo (CNW Group/Good Gamer Entertainment Inc.)

Cube Crush tests a person's skills where they have to slide and drag blocks onto a block puzzle board. Players will have three minutes to clear rows to earn streaks and combo bonuses. As rounds are completed, players can earn coins and unlock cool prizes. It's a brain teaser that users will find addicting and fun to play.

Good Gamer's brand-new match-and-merge puzzle game Dice Match N'Merge will sharpen players' minds with this extremely addictive game. Players need to match the customizable dice blocks on the puzzle board by dragging and dropping them. The value of the die corresponds to its colour and if three dice of the same colour are matched, players can collect ruby gems and merge to increase values.

Train your brain in Pop Blast , an addictive puzzle crush game that lets players have fun and to pass the time.  Simply drop a block by "popping" it onto the grid, and watch it blast!  Tap to crush any two or more adjacent blocks of the same color.  When more than five squares of the same color are crushed, a special bomb can be produced.

The Company plans to integrate its three new puzzle games into Good Gamer's Playcash play-to-earn app discovery platform in the coming weeks.

"We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new puzzle games on Android," said Good Gamer CEO Charlo Barbosa . "Over the last few years, puzzle games have exploded in popularity, especially in the United States where total revenue for puzzle games is projected to reach almost $8 billion in 2022, up from $2 billion in 2020. Whether someone is passing the time between meetings or on their commute home or just trying to unwind after a long day, puzzle games have become the go-to for Americans looking to relax and decompress. We look forward to seeing the market's response to our growing selection of puzzle games."
