Relive fond memories of your favorite classic arcade or electronic handheld games with Ollie’s Arcade – a fun collection of retro-styled mini games that are challenging and simple to play.

All of us here at the Iconfactory love the classic video games we played in our youth. Many hours were spent in front of titles like Asteroids, Moon Patrol, and Battlezone, as well as cherished handheld electronic games like Mattel Football, Simon, and Merlin. Ollie’s Arcade recaptures a little bit of this magic and gives players a chance to turn their iPhone or iPad into a retro gaming experience.

Two of the games in Ollie’s Arcade – Ollie Soars and Tranquility Touchdown – were inspired by simple Easter eggs in Twitterrific, our beloved Twitter app. We polished Tranquility Touchdown, completely revamped Ollie Soars, and added an all-new third game – our own take on the classic Snake. All of Ollie’s mini-games are easy to learn and designed to be accessible for everyone. You can even play with your favorite game controller or via wireless keyboard.

The Games

Here are the three retro mini games:

Ollie Soars – The sky’s the limit as you fly around the world with Ollie. Find all the gems you can while soaring past obstacles. Take time to enjoy the scenery but watch where you’re going!

Snake – A hungry snake is its own worst enemy. Gobble up as many apples as possible while you avoid running into your snake’s own twists and turns. Watch out for apple cores!

Tranquility Touchdown – Head for the stars in a game of exploration and skill as you pilot your lander to the surface of six different planets. Keep an eye on your fuel – what goes up, must come down!


Do I need quarters?

No, you won’t need a pocketful of coins to play! And better yet, there are no annoyances while playing: all the mini games are ad-free with no subscriptions.

Ollie’s Arcade is a free download that includes Ollie Soars. The other two mini-games, Snake and Tranquillity Touchdown, are unlocked via a one-time purchase of just $1.99 USD each. 

We have lots of ideas for future additions, and your purchase will help us bring them to life. So grab Ollie’s Arcade on the App Store today, press PLAY and have some fun!
