Midway Arcade Origins is an arcade compilation released on November 6, 2012,[1] in North America and in Australia. It is the successor to the Midway Arcade Treasures series, and includes a selection of games that were included in those compilations, with the sole exception of Vindicators Part II which will be included in Midway Arcade Origins. On January 19, 2017,[citation needed] Midway Arcade Origins was added to the Xbox One via the backwards compatibility program.[2]

Midway Arcade Origins offers more than 30 classic from the Midway Games catalog of arcade greats! Offering genre-defining blockbusters from the golden age of arcades, the collection includes arcade favorites, such as Gauntlet, Rampage, Joust, Spy Hunter, Defender, Marble Madness and more! New players can experience these industry-defining classics, while longtime fans of classic arcade games can re-master their favorite titles with additional goals for PlayStation Achievements / Xbox Trophies. Players will also be able to enjoy many games with up to three of their friends in local, co-op multiplayer, as well as post high scores online.

Parents need to know that Midway Arcade Origins is a collection of classic arcade games from the '80s. While the themes might not be so appropriate -- such as killing contestants in a Running Man-like futuristic game show, fighting a cyborg to the death, or blasting a robot invasion -- the graphics are quite crude by today's standards and not realistic. Some do present blood (although it is pixilated). Plus, in one game there are references to drug dealers and hookers.

What's old is new again. On one disc, MIDWAY ARCADE ORIGINS is a collection of 30 classic arcade titles from the golden age of gaming. This includes seminal favorites like Defender, Gauntlet, Root Beer Tapper, Spy Hunter, Joust, Rampage, Wizard of Wor, Xenophobe, Satan's Hollow, and Total Carnage. There are also lesser-known games and sequels (e.g. Defender II, Gauntlet II). Midway has also added Xbox 360 Achievements and PlayStation Network Trophies, so gamers can earn awards for playing well and compare them with friends. Plus, they've also added some co-op gaming support for three players on the same TV (depending on the game).

These classics are likely to strike a nostalgic chord (hint: 40- or 50-somethings who grew up in smoky arcades) and can be something parents can share with their kids. These games are the original titles -- not remakes -- so purists will be happy with this collection. Some hold up better than others, such as Joust, Defender, and Robotron, while others perhaps not so much. Adding Xbox 360 Achievements and PSN Trophies is a good idea, as is co-op multiplayer on the same TV (and the ability to post high-scores online to boast to the world). But at $30, this is a little too much for what you get -- if you know what you're doing online, you can download these games and use an "emulator" to play them -- but it's still a good '80s collection of classics for nostalgic types.

Midway Arcade Origins delivers the ultimate arcade experience with more than 30 classic games from the arcade golden age. Players can enjoy their favorite genre defining Midway titles now with local co-op multiplayer, achievements, and Leaderboard support.

You must do each part of the sequence within a quarter second of one another, but you may hold each part as long as you wish. When the third part is done, the programmer credits will pop up and remain onscreen as long as the fire joystick is held upward. Be warned that you will lose your game if you do this trick, and it must be done without dying.Contributed By: Larcen_Tyler 3 3Root Beer Tapper CheatsUnlockablesSecret Gamer PictureUnlock the "Careful" Achievement and you will receive a special gamer picture of a frosty root beer mug.Contributed By: xl1nkzx 0 0SecretsTransport to the Front of the Bar CVISPress the Joystick Button while you're getting a tip at the end of the bar to transport from that part of the bar to the front.

Banked corners simply treat your car as if it had level 6 traction, very slightly increasing turn rate at high speeds. NOTE: Due to a bug (at least in the NES port), once a car reaches a banked corner on the current track, the car will have level 6 traction for the rest of the race.Contributed By: leimagnuschan 0 0Toobin' CheatsCodesLevel Skip NESDuring game,play press Start to pause it.
