Editor's Note: The following is a mini-review from the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 24th of February, 2012. The video above contains footage for the game.

I feel a bit bad about cramming such a great title in to the Mini-Review section of this week's Wrap-Up, but aside from going in to nauseating detail about the controls for all the games available in the title, there's not much more to say than: If you're an Arcade junkie, get this collection. For your initial investment you're provided with classic Midway titles including Arch Rivals, Defender, Joust, Rampage, Root Beer Tapper, Spy Hunter, and playable versions of Pool, Air Hockey, Roll Ball and Basketball. Each features a series of controls suited to make the most of the iOS platform (such as optional tilt controls for Spy Hunter) and players can earn 'tickets' that go towards unlocking new content for the Arcade. Those who can't wait can drop cash to pick up a three-pack that includes either Gauntlet I & II and Wizard of Wor, or NARC, Total Carnage and APB. The only real disappointment is the lack of iCade support, but it's a small price to pay for so much fun.
