Arcade1UP is a series of arcade machines, launched in 2018 by Tastemakers. They are intended for home use, lacking coin slots, and were sold in retail stores. Unlike most home machines, however, they are about the same size as a real arcade machine - only being around a foot shorter. Many Pac-Man and Namco Arcade1UPs have been released, with various different game lists and form factors.

Games

The following Pac-Man or Namco-related games have been included across various Arcade1UP machines.

  • Pac-Man (1980)
  • Ms. Pac-Man (1981)

Additionally, most Arcade1UP models released from 2021 onward feature the speed up chip versions of their respective games (accessible via the settings menu). Some Arcade1UP machines also feature Gorf (1981), but it is grouped in with the Midway/Williams license instead of with the Namco machines.

List of Namco machines

(Note: There are many slight variations of Arcade1UP machines that retain an identical game list [bundled with barstools, lit-up marquees, etc.]; these have not been documented here.)

Standard

The standard models are the closest in form factor to an actual arcade machine. They are roughly three-fourths the height of an original machine, though additional "Risers" can be used to increase their height. Some models need to be assembled before use, while others are sold pre-built.

Head-to-Head Tables

The Head-to-Head Tables base their form factor on "cocktail table" machine designs, with two sets of joysticks on opposite sides.

  • Pac-Man (type 1) - features Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Pac & Pal, Pac-Mania, Galaga, Dig Dug, Super Pac-Man, and Pac-Land. Two models were released - one in yellow, and another in black.

  • Ms. Pac-Man - features Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Pac-Mania, Pac-Land, Galaga, Galaxian, Dig Dug, and Dig Dug II.
    • Due to an error in printing, this model's box listed the machine as containing ten games instead of eight. Because of this, Arcade1UP released a firmware patch (downloadable via their website) that added Mappy and Pac & Pal to the gamelist.
