Arcade Games

The Game Grid has an eclectic mix of arcade games, from golden age classics such as Asteroids Deluxe, Centipede, Missile Command, Warlords, Galaga, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man to great new games like Blazing Angels, Chase HQ 2, Dariusburst Another Chronicle, Pac-Man Battle Royale, Super Street Fighter 4, and Terminator Salvation. Currently we simply run the games on US quarters.

Many of our games are Arcade Exclusive meaning they are NOT available on home consoles and in some cases, not available for emulation either. Even emulation leaves a lot to be desired from playing on the actual machine with original controls.

You can also see our game listings on Aurcade.com. We are set up withtheir High Score Tracking program so you can track and compete against players worldwide! Check out the dynamic High Score Table here!

We currently have 50 game cabinets available and 55+ games total!

The Act

Review of The Act @ The Game Grid Arcade, Utah from Adam Pratt on Vimeo.

Only about a dozen of these were ever sold to the public before Cecropia closed it's doors. We are the only arcade that nabbed one, making it a very exclusive game to the Game Grid and where it's unlike any other arcade game out there, it has the extra bonus of letting you experience something a little different than a racer or light-gun game. Our cabinet currently is lacking the knob as that broke a short time ago but it has been temporarily replaced with a trackball which works similarly.

This version is quite different than the classic home versions found on the Atari 2600 or Colecovision - it's like a cross between Pitfall 1, 2 and Spelunker. It has both a timer and lives, the level designs are much different as are the obstacles and enemies. 1-2 players can alternate turns. This is a very difficult game to find!
