Electro Mechanical and Redemption Games Selection

This section is a one-switch accessible home for the likes of Whack-a-mole, Toy Grabbers, Fortune Telling machines, penny pusher games, novelty shooting ranges and more. In essence, anything that you might find in an amusement arcade past or present that is not a video game, nor a pinball machine, nor a fruit machine.

If you are a games programmer and like the idea of bringing a fully accessible arcade to all, and perhaps developing something for this EM and Redemption area, please get in touch. Decent accessible games will be submitted automatically to the Game for Helen project.

Drop Blocks!

"Drop Blocks!"

Superb on-line version of the LAI Games prize machine Stacker. Requires timing skills. Can be slowed down using CPU Killer, and magnified using Windows 7's excellent screen magnifier.

Please get in touch if you'd like to host this game or play off-line.
