My son is a gamer through and through. He loves to explore all of the new games, but he also loves classic games too! This holiday season, he has quite a surprise for him with this awesome Atari Home Arcade Game from Hammacher Schlemmer! The below was provided to me to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I am disclosing this in accordance to FTC Guidelines.
This is one of the coolest gift ideas of the season in my opinion! It is a throwback to the 1980s with modern features like a LCD screen. The game is 48 3/4″ H x 22 3/4″ D x 19″ W to give the full arcade experience. You can also add a riser to the game if you want it to sit a little higher off the ground for about $80.
There are 2 versions of this game available, Centipede and Asteroid. Each come with several pre installed games. We got the Centipede version which includes a trackball control with Centipede, Crystal Castles, Millipede, and Missile Command games. The game plugs into the wall and requires no batteries for the win! It does require some assembly, but we found it to be pretty simple to put together!
I love that this fun gift option from Hammacher Schlemmer gives my kids a chance to experience video games like I did as a child, in the big arcade presentation. Retailing at under $400 this would be an incredible gift to give any gamer or Retro fan this holiday season!
I highly recommend Hammacher Schlemmer for holiday shopping. The company has more than 170 years of experience in providing the best gift options. I love that they offer a lifetime guarantee with normal wear and tear too!
Do you have any arcade style games in your house? Who would you gift this incredible and fun for the whole family game to?
