Post image for Coleco: Berzerk and Frenzy Mini Arcade Machine

Arcades used to be extremely popular back in the day with games to summon young kids and teenagers. It was the place to be. Coleco, the company behind these awesome arcade machines, then released mini arcade machines in 1981 and marketed them as “the arcade games you can take home with you,” so you could have the same type of experience but in the comfort of your home. They were quite popular at the time and had the same look and feel as the original arcade machines. Coleco now wants to bring the mini arcade machines back. These arcade machines will be the same as you remember from the 80’s but of course with better technology. They will have the same heavy duty plastic shell, the same classic shape and the same vibrant designs. The two mini arcades that will be introduced will still have the same Berzerk and Frenzy games on them so you can relive your olden days of glory.
