Description

Moscow's Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines features dozens and dozens of charmingly offbeat games. If you grew up in the west, many will seem familiar (but slightly off - they were designed using Soviet tech and according to Communist ideology). And if you were raised behind the Iron Curtain? These are just as you remember!

The friendly staff of gaming enthusiasts welcome you to Moscow's Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines, which offers 50 Arcade machines. And then it's up to you to try your hand at any of the nearly 40 old-school games.

They've been lovingly restored by purists and feature pinball and other mechanical games, as well as digital games 1.0.

Browsing is a fascinating glimpse into Cold War culture in the USSR. But while here, you'd be a fool not to use the provided coins to try and beat a pinball high score, or to sink a submarine in Sea Battle.

The designers were limited by both the ideology and the technology of the time, and all of this is part of the charm of this beloved museum-cum-arcade-cum-time-machine!

Insider tip

All of the machines were designed behind the Iron Curtain based on Western classics, so you may 'recognize' much of the gameplay, (though surely there's no Western parallel to The Giant Turnip?)
