The chance to create a record for inclusion in the hall of fame
A unique collection of legendary arcade games. Updated!
The Arcade Park collection has been carefully designed to revive legendary games from the past Ч this pack represents great value with 8 arcade games in one! Classics such as Arcade Ball, Asteroids, Rushman, Digger, Gold Hunter and Galaxy Invaders are available alongside military games Real Tanx and Riverside Assault.
In Arcade Ball, players must think quickly if they are to grapple with both a lightning-fast ball, whilst contending with a platform that thrashes it in every conceivable direction.
Asteroids. A small interstellar reconnaissance spaceship finds itself in the middle of a cosmic confrontation between the many and the few. It must dodge thick rings of asteroids as well as various aggressive inhabitants from outer spaceЕ
Rushman. When a furry little animal heads out onto the streets of his native town in search of food, it seems as though anyone might hurt him. His enemies should be aware that eating cursed fruit can turn our hero into a terrifying, fanged creature that no one should confrontЕ
A descendant of Scandinavian knights, giant moles of antiquity and the Yeti, Digger is the fastest underground animal known to man. He moves as quick as lightning and with a portable annihilator installed in his helmet, his hands just canТt help reaching for diamondsЕ
The adventure lover and gold robber, Gold Hunter, has entered a secret multi-level depository holding the planetТs gold reserves. On the brave dodgerТs belt hangs the BFT-5000, a weapon with the power to burn right through the floor. Yet Gold Hunter must work quickly, for the entire Earth Security Service is on his trailЕ
Despite the grave forecasts of analysts and science fiction writers, humanity managed to defend itself against the attack of the alien race known as the Galaxy Invaders. The Supreme Parliament of Earth made a decision to deliver a preventative blow to the aliensТ home planet.
Real Tanx. The enemyТs advance was stalled by an unprecedented level of frost that covered the continent, but theyТre still fighting. Unidentified and heavily armored divisions have smashed apart the national defense on all fronts, and now theyТre headed for the cities. The captain of the one surviving defense tank knows that only a miracle will save his staffЕ
Riverside Assault. An elusive enemy is making it impossible for the General of Peacemaking Forces in the valley of the Congo River to account for the missing Red Cross helicopters and entire provision trucks. Desperate and tired of the string of disappearances, the Commander of a squadron of modern fighters is called upon to detect and neutralize the unseen mischief-makerЕ

It's worth noting that Arcade Park has been properly ported to Symbian OS and doesn't use Java (etc.) - as a result, it's quite efficient with RAM, especially important on the RAM-starved UIQ 3 smartphones, using up less than 4MB when running and behaving itself when interrupted by a call or by you wanting to do something else. Arcade Park is a fun diversion and, as long as you're not a hard core gamer wanting something to be really immersed in, is good value for money.
Having eight games in one sounds like a real bargain. Putting aside the old concepts and low graphics, Arcade Park proves to be a real deal, as the classic style never dies. Herocraft has put some considerable attention into reviving arcade game concepts in a way which is highly similar to the past version and also appealing to modern game players.
...One of the things I really liked about 8-in-1 Arcade Park was that there was little relationship between the games. They spanned multiple genres and gameplay styles. This meant that it is sure to have a little something for everyone...
