  What is an EMUCADE™ Custom Game Machine?

Relax and play a CD while you design :)An EMUCADE is a Custom Made Arcade Style Game Machine that allows for the traditional play of thousands of original Arcade and Console games through a PC based system or dedicated multi-board.  With many unique options available, our approach to design allows the game user to really enjoy an authentic game experience.  No gimmicks or clone titles.  No fakes.  Just the original games like you have always played them. 

The Machines are designed around the popular 1980s cocktail table tops and Stand-up arcades, with many custom modifications.  We have several options to help fit any game room environment or budget.  Just for example, we build the machine cabinets in solid OAK.  We add extra controls, and we include support for thousands of game titles.  Many collectors are choosing to sell their dedicated title machines and purchase an EMUCADE multi-game machine.

Other Helpful Questions to ask when buying an Arcade Machine.

Will the Game machine look good in my home?  Our Arcades are made of solid oak with a full stain and poly finish.  Made the same way fine furniture is manufactured.  You pick the color so it’s always a perfect match for your home.

How about materials?  Our cocktails are toped with ¼” solid glass, and Stand-up arcades are covered in 1/4 “ clear PLEXI.

Are the parts new?  We use Brand new HAPP Controls Joysticks and buttons, new I-PAC controls and all new JAMMA boards.  All components are out of the box NEW so they carry a full manufactures warranty.

Is it a versatile set up for all types of games and titles?  EMUCADE™ MAME cocktails come standard with 4 joysticks, 20 buttons, and a single trackball.  Our 3-sided design supports “head to head” play and “side by side” play.  EMUCADE™ has other custom cocktail options available as well.  The 4-sided cocktail is a killer set up for all arcade and console games including both a track-ball and spinner for must have games.  Stand-up arcades come standard with 2 player sticks and a centered trackball.  This makes for great two stick games and great side-by-side game-play
