1. Donkey Kong 

Donkey Kong is one of the earliest and most influential video arcade games in Singapore of all time. Originally released in 1981 and considered by many to be the first true platformer, the game features a large ape named Donkey Kong who must be stopped from kidnapping a woman named Pauline. The player controls a character named Mario, who must climb up a series of ladders and across bridges to rescue Pauline from the enraged ape. The problem is that Donkey Kong is no pushover, and he’ll do everything he can to stop you by throwing different types of barrels that Mario must avoid. 

This game features four different levels, each with its own unique challenges. You’ll need quick reflexes and precise timing to defeat Donkey Kong and rescue Pauline. With its innovative use of graphics and sound, it remains one of the most popular arcade games in Singapore and worldwide of all time. You can try out Donkey Kong on the 80s’ Retro Arcade Game Machine!

2. Whack a Frog

The Whack a Frog arcade machine is a classic game that has been enjoyed by generations of players  in Singapore. Players use a paddle to hit frogs as they jump out of holes. Each time a frog is hit, it disappears and reappears in another hole. The goal is to hit as many frogs as possible before the timer runs out. While the game is simple and straightforward, it can be quite challenging and addictive. Players must have quick reflexes and good hand-eye coordination to be successful.

3. Bishi Bashi

Bishi Bashi is an extremely popular game in Japan that is played in arcades. It features a variety of mini-games that can be played solo or multi-player, with up to three players being able to compete against each other at a time. The player uses a set of buttons and a joystick to play the games, which are often based on popular culture or Japanese folklore. The goal is to score points by successfully completing the various minigames. 

The mini games are known for their colourful graphics as well as wacky, over-the-top characters and environments. For example, one popular Bishi Bashi mini arcade game is set in a sumo wrestling ring, where players must use their hands and feet to knock opponents out of the ring. Another popular mini game features a character who must eat as much food as possible to win.

Released in 1996 by Sega, the game put players in the shoes of two agents who were tasked with investigating a mysterious mansion that had been overrun by zombies. Players have to blast their way through hordes of the undead, ultimately uncovering the mansion’s dark secret.
