Are you a retro game enthusiast? Would you like to know which are the best retro games ever created? So this information is for you, because I have rounded up some of the most remarkable retro games ever made here.
Some retro games are still very popular to this day and were even adapted for mobile devices, and some of them are no longer popular and were forgotten in the retro classics archive. However, some of the forgotten games do not deserve to be forgotten because they are truly incredible, so I will make sure to introduce not only the games that are still popular today.
These are some of the best retro games ever made:
Frogger – Frogger is a 1981 arcade game developed by Konami. The idea of the game is to guide the frogs to their homes one by one crossing a busy road and navigating a river full of dangers. The Frogger coin-op is an early example of a game with more than one CPU, and it was definitely the first game of its kind.
Space invaders – Space Invaders is an arcade video game developed by Tomohiro Nishikado. It was released in 1978 and was originally manufactured and sold by Taito in Japan. Subsequently, a different company authorized it for production in the United States. Space Invaders is one of the first shooting games to be released, and the mission of the game is to defeat waves of aliens with a laser cannon and get the highest possible score. This game was a huge success in its day and formed the basis of the entire shooter genre.
Star Wars – Star Wars was released in 1983 by Atari Inc. It was very popular at the time and is still considered a cult game and has many loyal fans around the world. The game is a first-person space simulator that simulates the attack on the Death Star from the movie Star Wars (which was released in 1977). The game is comprised of 3D color vector graphics and was developed during the Golden Age of Arcade Games. It is considered the fourth most popular game of all time according to the readers of “Killer List of Videogames”. Star Wars is one of the old classic video games that are very big and popular even today, after more than two decades.
There are many amazing retro games that should belong on the list of the best retro games ever made, but since I couldn’t list them all, the three mentioned above definitely represent this category very well.
