By pairing their original, old-school mechanics with upgraded, high-definition visuals, this collection of three arcade classics will delight gamers both young and old. For those old enough to remember when it cost a quarter to play these games, the trio of influential icons included in the Arcade Game Series 3-In-1 Pack -- Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug -- will transport you to the days of your youth, thanks to these versions being the same ones from the arcades; they just look better. But if you want, you can make small changes to them, giving yourself more lives or changing the vertical rectangle screen to a square or a TV-screen-filling horizontal rectangle, or all variations in between. Best of all, besides this three-pack, all three games are available individually, along with the equally classic Ms. Pac-Man, which is available on its own. While old folks will appreciate how well these classics have held up, some younger gamers might find them to be a bit simplistic, redundant, or visually dated. But anyone who plays arcade games on a smartphone or tablet will appreciate how these games used their simplicity to be so engaging and addictive that we're still playing them 30-plus-years later.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
