Palace Arcade

Publisher: Hasbro Gaming
Platform: Plug & Play
Released internationally: 2018


SourceIcon.png This game has uncompiled source code.


A mini arcade machine featuring licensed ports of Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, and Dig Dug...and also 16 Stranger Things games. Great.

While the Namco titles are tolerable recreations of the arcade games, the Stranger Things "originals" are so abysmal that they would make Action 52 cry...

Uncompiled Code

A lot of source code (?) appears towards the end of the ROM. It starts at address 3F91B0, alongside a build date:

It is followed by a much larger chunk at address 3F9B50:
