In correlation with the “toy hacking,” video game hacking can begin with some classic arcade games as “mentor texts” that one can build upon. A nice element of the classics is that design and play are relatively simple, due no doubt to the constraints of technology of the time. Revisit some of the old arcade games — http://www.classicgamesarcade.com/ — and find a favorite. Next, either build a board game version of the video game, or use a video game design site like Gamestar Mechanic – http://gamestarmechanic.com/ – to build your own version of a classic arcade game. Consider ways you can value the original design and yet add your own touch and creativity to the game. Share it out with friends.
