FREE! Ep 9: Play Thousands of Arcade Games FREE

Who doesn’t love free stuffs? I do love them. Here are FREE stuffs for this episode. Enjoy!

Gathered across various sources around the world and from the internet, here I share with you all the FREE! stuffs – products or services – that I found them interesting. Some of them are totally FREE! while some of them are just temporarily FREE! So be sure to get/download/consume them while they are FREE!

This time, I found thousands of FREE! Arcade games. Arcade games and arcade hubs were thriving back when playing game online was not a thing yet and when home game consoles were limited in terms of processing power, people were going to Arcade hubs to play games together and enjoy good graphics games.

For those who are now on your 30s, 40s, 50s or even 60s, most of you likely ever visited to local nearby Arcade hubs playing those arcade games when you were younger. Titles like 1942, Daytona, Fatal Fury, Final Fight, Metal Slug, Mortal Kombat, Outrunners, Time Crisis should be familiar.

For those in your 20s, 10s – while you may not seen those games before, but I can confirm you’ll get a good time playing this game.

Now you can bring back that fond memories directly from within your fingertips. Without further ado, here they are.

How to play these thousands of Arcade Games: via MAME

Once you have downloaded some of those games, you need to install MAME, short for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator, an emulator to run Arcade games. Think MAME just like ePSXe as emulator for PlayStation, CEMU as emulator for Nintendo Wii U, MAME is built intended to emulate those arcade games.

So here’s the download link for all available platforms.

AndroidGoogle Play link
iOSIPA GitHub link
MacOS / LinuxMAME download link
Windows / PCMAME download link

Note for iOS: Since Apple doesn’t allow emulators on its iOS App Store, so in order for you to play these arcade games on your iOS device, you need to download the IPA file (link given above) and need to sideload this IPA file to your iOS device. I haven’t created the guide specifically for MAME, but the generic but detailed step by step on how to sideload an app or game is available here: Complete guide how to sideload apps/games to iOS.
