Every day I look at the games you make, all of them are unbelievably professional. It's rare that someone is as committed to quality work as you are. Programmers should also have an Immortals Club, I'd like to join you! :)

Thanks for the kind words! I would say exactly the same about your work :) It's great to know all the effort that goes into making these games is appreciated!

Great game!! I like it a lot!! Good job :D It’s a really nostalgic one than remembered me to 70-80s where you had to go to recreative places to play games in arcade machines!! Good luck working on it!!

I'm glad you enjoyed it :)  Thanks for playing!

You’re more than welcome :D

Really amazing stuff!

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback :)

Dude, this is so COOL!

Just, cannot believe that you actually made this! Pac-Man look so cool at the pictures, and the backround is so freaking awesome! I just love arcade games, they are interesting and better then the new ones! Plus Pac-Man was the first mascot ever! I din't play this yet, but i bet it's going too be cool!

Thanks! I hope you enjoy playing it :)

It's a really great game.

But I have heavy problems with controls. I want to play with the digipad on my Xbox controller and not with analog stick. It's very difficult for me with these games to play with stick. A remapping function would be great. Same as with keyboard. I'm not a fan of WASD and prefer arrow keys.

(1 edit)
Hmm... I would have thought the digipad would work since you can use the arrow keys, and I also support the d-pad on most controllers in addition to the analog stick, but I'll look into adding a remapping function in a future release. Thanks for the feedback!

Games are recreated wonderfully, just that the performance on my light laptop is very bad, it's a slideshow. Wish there was an option to turn down the graphics.

(1 edit)
Oh, that's too bad. Unfortunately if your laptop doesn't have a GPU it will be slow :(  But I'll look into ways to improve the performance if possible... maybe an option for reducing the resolution and for dropping shadows. 

Wow... just stumbled in here today and glad I did. These are amazing thankyou.

If you ever decided to make this or your Retrofab emulator work correctly on phones and tablets, it would be very cool if you could somehow tap into the gyro so that the orientation of the handheld could change depending on the angle of the device, ie; tilt the device to the right and see more of the left side of the handheld, tilt to the left and see more of the right side, up/down etc. There are a few phone and tablet apps over the years that have done this with pinball games and also Labyrinth games. Check out this labyrinth game from 13 years ago to see what I mean.

Thanks for playing and for the feedback! I hope to release a mobile version of RetroFab at some point in the future after I finish work on the desktop version :)

That would be fantastic, hopefully you consider the gyro suggestion as I feel that would make it even more realistic. Well done again on a fantastic release. :)

By chance could you add Track & Field and Hyper Sports?

(2 edits)
Those would be cool to add! I can't make any promises but I'll definitely consider it :)  Thanks for the suggestion.

These are very good too. Such a talent.. thanks so much!

Thanks aurelbdx! That's very kind of you : ) I'm currently busy working on a  new project, RetroFab (itizso.itch.io/retrofab), but will hopefully get back to adding some more games here soon-ish ; )

this seems very cool, but why is it a prototype? it feels very full for me

(1 edit)
Thanks : ) It was originally started just as a small experimental build  but I guess it's grown a lot since then. I still have a few more features (and games) I want to  add before moving it out of prototype though. Thanks for playing!

Your work with bringing so many classic games into the present is remarkable. I'm always delighted to visit your page and find new games to check out!

(1 edit)
Thanks goodolvic : )  more coming soon... 

rally x was my favorite, this is really cool!

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

hey! thanks for making it downloadable!

nostalgia here i come!

No problem : ) Enjoy!

it's a great project, can you make it stand-alone ? 

Totally buying it!

(3 edits)
Sure, why not. I'll try to do it in the next few days.
And  no need to buy it... it will be 100% free ;) 

You are awesome, sir

I played your game.
Thanks for playing!

Awesome Game =D

The holographic artwork is super cool!! I had fun :D

I'm glad you  liked it :) Thanks for playing!

This is super cool! Reading the description I was expecting a fancy rom player, not these 3d recreations, it's amazing presentation wise!

Thanks :)  I appreciate the feedback.

Very cool. However the controls in pacman felt a bit janky and sluggish. It is a really cool idea and the games were fun. Are there gonna be any more in the future?

(7 edits)
Thanks :) Yes, I will be adding more games :) Thanks for playing!

Realy good vibes while playing

(2 edits)
Thanks :)

Yes! This is cool! Made it feel like the Arcade remakes that you connected to TV back in the 90s xD.
Pac-Man control is a bit janky :/
Pinball Action is missing the classic "snappiness" of the ball movement
Frogger is great! Maybe add some leeway near the edge. Got screwed by   the  "border" even though I made the jump to final log on left-side.
Space Invaders and 1943 are awesome too! Control and play works great.
Love the "3D-Hologram" aspect ^_^
Best of luck of your further ventures :D

Hi. Thanks for playing and for the constructive feedback. The games are in the order I created them and the earlier ones do need some more work. I try to incorporate the feedback and what I learn into each new game so I'm glad to see that the more recent ones like Space Invaders and 1943 are better in terms of controls and play. I will eventually update the earlier ones based on all the community feedback. Thanks again for playing. Hope you'll follow me for future updates. Would love your thoughts on those too. Cheers.

This was a lot of fun. Great classics in a whole, very impressive looking format. The controls for Pac-Man and Pinball still had that problematic jankyness. Tetris, too -- it kept spinning the pieces all the way around with one button click if it was just a little heavy.

I look forward to more that comes!

(1 edit)
Thanks for the feedback! I think the issues with the controls are related  to differences in the keyboard repeat rate. I'll look in to it. Thanks for letting me know :)

Wow !!!!!

This. Is. Amazing. i really like the aesthetic and the concept I'm just curious though what engine are you using.

(1 edit)
Hi Diego. Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you liked it :-)
I haven't used a game engine. It's just plain HTML5 and WebGL. 

Wow that’s amazing here I was struggling to make tic tac toe without a game engine. Great job.

great! can play with controller? can download? thx. 

(1 edit)
Hi. Thanks for playing! I haven't worked with controllers before, but I'll try to add support ... if you're willing to test? Sorry, no downloads yet... still learning  game development so it may be a while before I get there. 

thank you :)

Okay. I've added support for game controllers. Hope it works with yours. Let me know.
