Arcade Advanced collects six Konami arcade titles in their classic form, including Rush'n Attack, Gyruss, Scramble, Yie Ar Kung~Fu, Time Pilot, and the original Frogger. Each of the six titles appears on the single cartridge just as they did in the Golden Age of video games, while new bonus features breathe new life into them. New graphics, multiplayer modes, levels, sound effects and game modes are just some of the extras being added to each title.

The answer to the age-old question: Why did the frog cross the road? To avoid the cars, trucks, alligators, snapping turtles and other perils. Navigate across multiple lanes of traffic, jump across moving logs and get Frogger home safely. This version marks the return of the classic arcade Frogger game for the first time in 15 years.


A deceptively tough game from the dawn of side-scrolling action games, Scramble is the great-grandfather of shooters like the recently released Gradius Galaxies. Pilot a spacecraft while avoiding missiles, comets, and careening alien craft as you try to keep enough fuel in your ship to destroy the alien base.

Time Pilot

An original in terms of both story and game design, Time Pilot broke all the rules of early 80's shooters. Zip back and forth through the history of aerial combat in from early Twentieth Century bi-planes and zeppelins to World War II-era dogfighters and bombers, 1970's helicopters and jets to futuristic UFOs.


Defeat wave after wave of spacecrafts on your perilous journey back to Earth! Dodge enemy shots and blast your way through as you stop by Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and other planets, all while navigating the hazard-ridden solar system in a circular orbit.

Yie Ar Kung~Fu

Without Yie Ar Kung~Fu, fighting games as we know them know may never have come to be. Deflect throwing stars, dodge swords and deliver ruthless high kicks while facing off one-on-one against a host of martial arts masters in a merciless kung fu match.

Rush'n Attack

Become a tough-as-nails special forces agent wielding only a knife as you take on a seemingly endless stream of gun-toting enemies. Upgrade from the knife by picking up special weapons like a flame thrower as you make your way deeper into enemy territory to complete your mission of rescuing the prisoners of war.
