You are bored and you want to play 80s retro arcade games but you do not know where to find a reliable site. This guide will help you decide how to choose a site wisely for your gaming needs.
First thing you need to do is remember the 80's game you want to play then type it in the search engine with quotes plus the words FREE FLASH GAME. It should look like this: "YOUR RETRO GAME free flash game" Flash is the format in which most games on-line are designed in.
Most if not all the retro games out there are totally free. If a website requests you to pay for a service or a game then you are being taken advantage of since the game you want is most likely free on-line.
The controls for most retro games are basically incorporated into your keyboard. Its usually the arrow keys to move, space bar to shoot or letter keys to shoot or jump. If not then then it will probably be your mouse to move and right click button to shoot.
Now lets move on to the actual site, many gaming sites have a plethora of choices. I (believe it or not) do not like this since this means I would have to search high and low for my game of choice. I recommend choosing a site that is specifically dedicated to your game or genre of interest, in this case 80's retro arcade games.
Do not download anything from any site unless you trust that site because this could lead to computer viruses or spy-ware.
To see if a gaming site is reliable do a quick search on-line to see what others have to say about that particular gaming site below if that site has comments section.
I hope this guide proves to be useful to you.
