Here is what one of our many satisfied customers had to say about his new Ace Amusements multi game machine:
steve...Steve...STEVE! This is indescribably beautiful! I feel like Ralphie's dad in A Christmas Story with his Major Award. Just unpacked it. The delivery guy said hats off to you guys. Well packaged. I'm going to get it moved into the house tonight from the garage and fire it up. I'll let you know if I have any questions. Just wanted to drop this line to thank you again. Well done sir!
Hey Steve. Got the unit in the house and played way too late last night. I'm raving about it and I have lots of friends in the engineering field who now want one too.

The price of your machine can be either the low or high price point, or anywhere in between depending on the extras that you choose.
In other words, you can tailor the price of your machine to fit your budget.

5. Matching games to cabinets.
Arcade video games come in two distinct image formats - vertical or horizontal.
The game image format will determine the monitor orientation - vertical or horizontal.
When you select the games to be played on your machine, they will be either vertical format (like Donkey Kong) or horizontal format (like Vs. Super Mario Bros.), but not both.
If you are wanting both vertical and horizontal image games in the same cabinet, check out our Ultra Edition 2500-in-1 machine.
Generally, vertical format games will work well in any of the cabinet styles described above - Midway, Atari, Williams, or Nintendo.
However, horizontal format games typically work better in a cabinet with an open-sides control panel, such as with the Atari, Williams, and Nintendo style cabinets.
6. Matchine games and controllers.
Typical classic vertical image games -
Requiring only a 4-way joystick and 1 to 3 control buttons. Examples - Donkey Kong and Frogger.
Playing best with a trackball. Examples - Centipede and Millipede.
Requiring a spinner and an 8-way button top joystick. Example - Tron.
Requiring a spinner. Example - Tempest.
Typical classic horizontal image games -
Requiring a 2-way up-down joystick and 5 control buttons. Example - Defender.
Requiring 8-way joysticks and 2 control buttons for 2 players. Example - Vs. Super Mario Bros.
