A downloadable tool for Windows

Arcade Game Studio is a engine that can make classic 80's retro game. It offers many tools to build games that look and feel like 80's games. Add your own stuff, very lightweight, able to be played in almost all windows games and build in editor. No coding required, you can make a game under an hour.

A very special thanks to Bruno R.Marcos who made this engine but as late, his website was shut down and his domain will expire. There was no contact or update since 2014. Which is why under the license terms I can give out the software for free and so can anyone (do not sell it).

Arcade Game Studio is a FREEWARE, you are allowed to distribute it freely but NOT to sell it.
You are free to distribute/sell your .args game file together with cabinet.exe (args game launcher that can be renamed).
