The Plakias Arcade is open

Yes the Plakias Forum Arcade is open.

OK so it won't appeal to all but if you want to spend a few minutes playing some simple games, this is the place to go.

All your efforts will be saved so you can see how you fare against other members.

You can go to the Arcade via this link.

If you would like to see any particular type of game appear please let me know.

Have Fun!

Paul

Hello Paul,

what a wonderful fun! I like playing the Arcade games and the first one is Tetris.
I hope the other members will enjoy it too.

Hi Kerstin,

Glad you are enjoying.
That is a good score at Tetris, that will be hard to beat.

Hi Paul,

We will see. I think anybody will be better.
Not every day is the same day and today I am very tired and so I cannot reach a better score.

Thanks Paul  

I haven't played 'Space Invaders' since they took the tables out of the pubs.

Not a bad effort after all this time, I suppose I'll stay at the top while there's only one score then start going downhill.

Sorry to disappoint George but the downhill trip has started!

I've played 3 games now but each time, the game's quit before the end or hung  
And so close to beating your Space Invaders score, Ploppy    - just needed another 33,000

Fun you call it - Karen on the laptop, me on the desktop all evening developing RSI!
But really, I'd forgotten how enjoyable these games could be. The Rise of Atlantis reminds me a bit of Ra's Revenge in the way it makes you concentrate so intently.

Great idea to add this feature Paul.

Any chance of "switching OFF" the "Whoojammit is the latest inductee to the hall of fame" and similar messages?

I got in here and thought G&K had made a bid to take over the forum and/or drive us all nuts

P.S.  Never mind RSI - between bolluxed eyesight and arthriticky fingers, my scores are depressingly depressed.

That is a system wide setting that can be on or off, though it affects everyone,

You can customise your arcade by going to the settings dropdown

[attachment=553:arcade_settings.jpg]

There are other pages in the dropdown that may interest you, have a play.

There are some other things to note.

If you like a game you can add it to your favourites by clicking on the following icon:

[attachment=554:arcade_favourite.jpg]

You can give a game a 1 to 5 rating by clicking on the rate it link:

[attachment=555:arcade_rate.jpg]

I've added some Categories to group the games by:

[attachment=556:arcade_category.jpg]

So everyone get playing to end Karen & Graham's bid for world domination

How does it look now Chas?

Bit puzzled over this one I must admit.

Yes I agree; having all these new "topics" swamping the forum is spoiling it.

Sorry, I mistakenly though that Chas meant the scrolling jobby in the Arcade itself.

I have disabled all the high score/hall of fame postings as yes they were spoiling it.

The only auto-generated message now is when I add a new game which isn't very often.

Thanks for the feedback.

Paul
