A Bespoke Arcades Apex cabinet is provided with a wealth of arcade games. The list of games spans the golden age of arcade gaming and includes the titles which put the (then) new genre on the map. The most famous titles are there to put a smile on your face and is a perfect starting block for you to build your ideal retro gaming collection.

Why not start off with Eugene Jarvis' Robotron: 2084- this game was widely praised for its intense action and game play. You take the role of an un-named super human character, whose aim is to save the human race (as per usual). A fantastic game which utilises both joysticks in order to allow the player to move in 1 direction while shooting in another.

Why don't we jump back into the heady year of 1983 and drive an armed sports car on the freeways of Bally Midway's Spy Hunter. Shove people off the road, or perhaps you feel like some asteroid dodging? Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe are supplied with your machines.

Or maybe you feel like playing Capcom's first hallmark game? Then take to the skies in your Super ace place and take down the fleet of an entire nation in 1942. Also included in the game's sequel 1943: The Battle of Midway, where the game mechanic changes somewhat with the arrival of an ever depleting fuel supply. It is still a classic title nonetheless.

Most people have one or two favourite games from their youth. However you can bet those games are included when you turn on the machine. All innovative titles for their time, such as the adventures that are told in Sega's Golden Axe. If you don't feel like slaying Death Adder and his minions, why not embark on a hack and slashing quest to slay a Dragon in Rastan. Classics titles come as standard on this arcade machine.

If you feel like some close quarter combat, then look no further than a Bespoke Arcades machine. All the classics are provided. From Street Fighter 1- the 1987 game which started it all, to the quintessential 1991 title Street Fighter 2 which brought about a boom in arcade releases attempting to build upon the foundations of this top-notch title. They are all here for you to duke it out to your heart's content.

There are times when you want to play the games with your friends above, and there are moments when you want to share your new purchase with the rest of your family- there are plenty of suitable, quality games.

It is said some parents relive their youth via their children, time for them to take a step back into your childhood via the video gaming classics you hold closest to your heart.
