Perks of the job
One of the (many) perks of working at Neon Play is that each member of staff is given £100 to buy the company a present when they join.
The gift that keeps on giving
In the past, we’ve been given ping pong tables, a shop mannequin, big boxes of Lego, loads of board games, 3D pens and all sorts of other bits and bobs.
Does it get any better?
And ten of our most recent top notch recruits have clubbed together for THE BEST PRESENT EVER. So Neon Play are now the proud owners of an old school arcade machine. And it’s got a great name - the Galaxy Cosmic III 600-in-1. Wow, does it fly and go to space? No, but it is awesome.
But with 600 games on it, the team have the choice of some classic games from years gone by. The official blurb all sounds rather good, so here is what it says on the website.
Big it up
One of the latest multi game arcade cabinets currently available - the Galaxy Cosmic III 600-in-1!
This is a superb machine that combines hard-wearing, durable build quality with eye-catching graphics, and a list of classic arcade games that just whets the appetite for as much fun as you can handle!
The Galaxy Cosmic III 600 conjures up memories of all that fun and excitement of the fighting, combat and puzzle arcade games in their heyday - the mid-90s to the early 2000s.
These trailblazing games are deserving of a cabinet to match, and the Galaxy Cosmic III 600 will not disappoint. It features a large, horizontal 20 inch LCD monitor and two red commercial quality joysticks, with six illuminated commercial quality buttons for each player.
The LCD monitor has been recessed to avoid pesky light glares while you're enjoying your game, and the quality sound effects will add to the feeling of immersing yourself in these classic game worlds.
The Galaxy Cosmic III 600 cabinet is a solid construction that has been designed to withstand commercial use, so it will perform to a high standard whether it is in your home games room or a busy communal area. It is also very simple to use - simply select the game you wish to play, using the joystick and fire button.
Most importantly, there are over 600 classic fighting, combat and competitive sport/puzzle games featured on the Galaxy Cosmic III 600-in-1, including titles such as the King of Fighters series, the Street Fighter II series, Samurai Showdown, Metal Slug and many, many more. And they all run off a solid PCB board that accurately recreates gameplay exactly as it was on the original machines.
So the Neon Play pleasure dome studio is nearly complete. We now have pool, ping pong, darts, board games, golf putting, Nerf guns and err, lots of other random stuff we pick up on the way.
