Welcome to Arcade Builder 1.5!

Tons of fixes and streamlining since version 1 has been added to the game. I am working on improving the overall engine and working on a new game! I hope to get more feedback about any issues and bugs with this new release!

Take control of your very own games arcade, manage the marketing, unlock new items and earn lots of cash!


- Loads of items to place!
- 'Ant farm' like simulation, bundles of customers!
- Marketing Budgets
- Electricity Bills
- Unlockables
- Build everything, the walls, floors, machines
- Hire staff, builders and janitors to keep the place up to date and clean!
- Customer Mind Reading
- Click customers for more information

REMEMBER: If you enjoy the game, please follow/fan me as I plan to release updates and more games like it very soon! :)

WARNING: This game uses your computers GPU and may cause fans to run louder, this is not a simple flash game and takes full advantage of the latest HTML5 WebGL technology to deliver a smooth running game directly in the browser. If you have a very old computer or laptop then the game may begin to run slow. If you let me know what spec you have I can begin to create different settings if its required!


Mouse = Click to place items and interact

W A S D (or) Up Down Left Right = Control the camera

R = Rotate

Help! !

- If the game happens to get a bug at any point, click the save button on the right, then reload the game and continue.

- If you're struggling to make money, try placing more arcade machines like 'Monkey Kong' and get the 'Set machine prices' unlock. Then fiddle with the prices a bit ;)

- If you encounter bad lag, try closing the arcade for a bit then re-opening it.

- If your happiness keeps hitting too low, consider placing more of each of these items:
1. Chairs
2. Pinball machines
3. Arcade machines
4. Toilets
5. Change machines
6. Snack / Drink machines
7. Janitors

- Languages are auto-translated, I apologise for any mistakes and I am working to improve translations.

Thanks <3

I hope you have fun and if you enjoy the game or have any suggestions, please use the comment box to let me know!

Lot of potential to make this a full fledge game. I love sim games like this

Pretty good,though their are some bugs.For one,the characters heads sometimes get dislodged from their bodies.I also wish their was a full screen mode becuase the game is so huge, i have to scroll up or down just to get through the menus

Very fun, though a bunch of stuff appears to be broken. :)

The list:
1- Sometimes the music doesn't work.
2- There's always people in my arcade, no matter if its set to open or closed. Am I looking at things the wrong way or?
3- I can't seem to buy the Frogger arcade.
4- The game opened a empty menu once that I couldn't get out of.
