We enter the Astro City arcade in Southend, Essex and aim to try out as many of the games available as we can, starting with the isometric Pac-Mania, followed by the bizarre shooter Phoenix, the classic Frogger, followed by a prize machine and a talking pinball machine called Gorgar!
This was a mental huge project to put together, and there’s at least another 3 parts to go yet! Please watch and share about with anyone you know who likes arcade games, Pac man or just classic games in general. :)

There’s a new arcade in Southend, Essex called Astro City! We have a look around and talk about some of the games there as well as a Dance Dance Revolution event that was held a couple weeks ago, where pros from around the country flocked down to check out the rather special machine for it available here.
