Information

While its a fair walk from the other arcades in the area, there are some reasons to make the journey. The majority of the games here are cheaper than the ones by Clarence Pier, plus there's also some Pinball machines hidden right at the back of the Arcade. (NBA Fastjam and scarred stiff.) It also has the only HOTD3/Ghost Squad in the area. Finally, the DDR is good here, and there are barely any highscores, as opposed to the one in the Wheel of fortune arcade. Overall despite being quite small, its worth the visit for the cheaper games.


UPDATE: Welp. Looks like there's some renovation going on, and because of this half of the machines have gone, including the ddr, hotd, gs and Afterburner. I'm unsure what's going to happen here so I won't update until the renovation is finished. It is open, but i wouldnt recommend visiting currently.

Games

Music GamePriceCondition
Dancing Stage EuroMIX2 (Europe)
Location: Near the back, next to Faster than Speed
Comment: The pad's are in very good condition, and its the best price for DDR in Southsea. However, after I finished playing, the sound went dead on the machine for a good few minutes, then returned again. It was very bizarre. Another thing to note is that the highscores are very low, so if your a half decent DDR player you can easily get a highscore on this machine. Overall though, its a good machine and should be looked at if your visiting the area.

Ghost Squad (International)
Location: Next to HOTD 3 and Sega Rally 3
Comment: The guns work well and is also the only Ghost Squad machine in the area. Occasionally, it can be hard to see an enemy if the weather is quite dark, but overall its in great condition and is worth playing if your there. The calibration ensures that there's no problem when aiming your gun. Unfortunately, the arcade doesn't sell Ghost squad cards, so you won't be able to track your progress unless you already have one.

Primeval Hunt (International)
Location: Near the Pinball machines, at the back (opposite euromix2)
Comment: Has been broken for at least 2 months.

The House of the Dead 3 (International)
Location: Next to Ghost Squad, on the left hand side of the arcade.
Comment: HOTD 3 is the only one in the area, and its also cheaper then playing HOTD 4 at the other arcades in Southsea. You will get three lives when you start the game. The P1 gun is misaligned slightly though, and will go up and to the right slightly from where you shoot. (This is particularly annoying if your facing bosses such as the fool) I believe P2's gun is ok however, so use that if your playing solo. Overall its a good arcade machine in decent condition.

After Burner Climax (Deluxe Cab) (International)
Location: Right at the front of the arcade, on the right.
Comment: This is broken already, after being there for only a few weeks (according to staff) A shame.

There are some new machines here, but I won't add them until renovation is finished. They are:
Time Crisis 3 Deluxe
Nascar 2P

Only remaining machine from previous is faster than speed, which has one side not working.
