ABOUT REPLICADE X TEMPEST

PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS
Every detail in these amazing works of arcade art has been painstakingly reproduced, including the wooden cabinet in perfect profile, control panel with reproduced PlayScale controls, illuminated marquee and cabinet accents, diecast metal coin door with a secret stashbox, and professionally reproduced cabinet artwork.
Our custom-made controllers have been designed to recreate an arcade-accurate experience while you play the original game software you remember from the arcade.
OFFICIALLY LICENSED BY ATARI
Replicade X Tempest is officially licensed by Atari and features the original cabinet artwork and arcade Rom from the classic Tempest Upright.
I’ve pretty much stopped writing about Kickstarter projects here in 2017, but occasionally there’s still something incredible over there. Case in point: RepliCade.
It’s one thing to see Prychak’s creation in a picture or a video and another to see it in person: its diminutive size, how responsive it is... It’s almost magical.
It's likely as close as you'll get to having the real thing in your home.
These mini arcade cabinets are cool!
Frequently Asked Questions
We are particularly proud of the audio reproduction of our RepliCade cabinets. The authentic MDF wood creates a warm resonance that will fill the room and have you closing your eyes and reminiscing about your “misspent yute” in the arcade. The cabinet does feature a control dial to adjust the volume when your wife/husband/kids/boss tells you to “turn that thing down!”
Never fear! RepliCade machines weigh in at just under 3 lbs, and all have protective, non-slip grips on the bottom to help ensure stability during gameplay – and to protect your tabletops when things get tense. Die bugs!
The enthusiastic reception our RepliCade machines have had in the retrogaming community has made for a steady stream of suggestions for machines – and we love that! Feel free to let us know what you’d like to see next to firstname.lastname@example.org
