ArcadeCraft Review | GameCola

"Sometimes when I’m bored, the Xbox is on, and I reach Opus Dei levels of masochism, I pop into the Xbox Live Indie Game Marketplace to see what new ways people have found to cannibalize their fellow indie game developers’ games and construct them into some kind of gaming version of a human centipede, fusing together zombies, Minecraft, Internet memes, and Avatars in a way that isn’t particularly flattering to any of them.

That’s when I came across ArcadeCraft. Judging from the name and the marketplace it’s on, I immediately figured it’s some kind of ersatz Minecraft (that’s the “craft” part down) and that it randomly makes some kind of empty references to older arcade games (and that’s the “arcade” part. Eat your heart out, Nancy Drew.).

Turns out I was wrong on both counts. It’s actually a tycoon-type simulation game where you build your own arcade." (Arcadecraft, Xbox 360) 8/10
