The New Arcade And Casino Section
  • What do you think about the new Arcade and Casino sections on the site? Is there any game in particular you just can't seem to stop playing? Discuss them here.

    I am hooked on the poker. I've always liked poker and the game has really grown in popularity recently. Add to that the chance to win pspoints (play money) and the sound effects and you've got a winner. I love the flies buzzing around the garbage and the guy laughing at your bad hands. I have yet to see the straight flush or royal flush but not from lack of trying.

    In the arcade section I've been playing Tetris and Hexxagon. Hex has got me frustrated but I find it addictive. Tetris reminds me why I loved the Gameboy and I'm always looking for that elusive tetris on the higher levels. Does anyone know if your point total increases if you speed the blocks down?

    Who's playing what and feel free to post any tips for better scores.
  • I love the new arcade and casino section, poker and hexxagon have got me hooked. I thought no one would beat my score of 42 on Hexxagon, but along comes Manne. :angry: The highest hand I've got in poker so far was a couple of full houses. I never play the real thing, money is tight as of late.

    Umm as for tips... you should always discard everything you are dealt, no matter what it is. Even if your dealt a royal flush of the deal, get rid of it something better is coming. ;) *Thinks to himself* That should help me out a bit.
  • Nah, I don't like those places that much, have hardly been in there at all. Tried the arcade once or twice while I was brushing my teeth, but the games never seemed to end everything just moved faster so I just quit when I had finished brushing. :D


    Seriously, I have a thing for Snake. Snake was the first game I played on a computer I could spend hours trying to beat the school record. I also like Pac man alot, but in this version the stages doesn't change so I find it boring rather quickly. In general I prefer mini games like theese, have been playing similar games online once or twice a week. Playing in the forums adds that extra spice of prestige that make gaming so great. I hope you guys are in here every day, trying to beat the reacords. I know I am trying to get my hands on that Astroids champion title anyways.

    The poker has a hypnotizing effect on me. I have also, like charger, fought hard to get the elusive Royal straight flush but yet nothing. I promise to let you know as soon as I do though.

    The one game I belive will cause the most annoyance is the Simon game since you can cheat by writing down the sequence. I'm looking forward to the accusations flying around the forums once we start seeing numbers exeeding 20.

  • This may not be the best place to ask this but i didn't wanna make a new topic just for this either.

    Is it possible that you guys could add an arcade game called "Chopper Challenge" ? I've seen it on several arcade's on websites, its a really good game.
  • Raaah. Snake. I love Snake. I'm a Snake junkie. Somebody gimme some competition! ;)
  • The new one, x227 is awesome. Slickest looking game so far. Great addition!

    TIP for Tricky Clicky Ball 2 - Direct the mouse with your right hand and use the left hand to left click the ball. Makes it so easy to keep the ball up and gives you time to grab those power ups. Someone could put up a yooge score with that method.

    Poker update... finally got a straight flush. The graphic display was two sword-like blades coming together in an "x" cutting motion, then the screen started to bleed. Now, on to the ever so elusive Royal Flush. I'm afraid that will take forever to get, unless you're dealt a pat hand.
  • Snake and tetris - Snake coz it reminds me of my 1st nokia fone i used to play snake on the bus home from college lol!!

    And tetris coz it keeps me from doing any real work!!
  • The Arcade and Casino both rock, I am playing everything in the arcade but mostly Asteroids and Snake. I only really play poker in the Casino though.

    I was dealt the first 4 cards twice yesterday, but only managed to get a flush. Also, I had quads yesterday, but you guys probably had a few of those. I think you get 16X what you bet. Gotta love the poker though.

    Looking forward to the return of the Casino (bug free of course!)

    The new additions to the Arcade are great! I like the Ultimate Football. Too bad the QB isn't #14. He might complete more passes with a number like that. I tend to throw for the farthest receiver so I miss quite a few but the reward is better. Nice pass!

    Also love the Sonic games. Almost makes me want to dig the Genesis out of the garage!

    All the new games are a nice addition to the Arcade and just make APi that much more fun! Thanks JB!
  • Its true, the new games rock, thanks Jim. Any luck with trying to get a Sudoko game on there mabey? Im also looking forward to having the Casino back, will the Atk shop be back also Jim?

    Nice work.
  • I dont like any game in particular as i $uk sonic didnt have my score posted after an hour of agonising gameplay or i would've been sonic champion :D
    As far as casino i like blak jack but i m bankrupt i was inactive so long u know but great work when i was out jim
