Description official description

Joey and his pet monsters are going to play a concert in Woodstock. Unfortunately, Joey has overslept, and his monsters have gone a little overboard in waking him up; their plan involved colossal amounts of dynamite. As a result, all the monsters have ended up all over the USA, and now Joey has to find them all.

Arcade America is a humorous platform game where you control the rather overweight Joey. Each level consists of a couple of smaller micro-levels and is set in an iconic location within the States, such as Alcatraz or Las Vegas, and has its own specific enemies. The goal on each level is to rescue one of the monsters. Joey can defeat the enemies in his way by hitting them with his prominent belly, or by shooting them with his slingshot, which has limited ammo. Getting the good ending (i.e. rescuing the band member) on each level requires finding a hidden item, usually accessible by a secret door. The game's best ending can only be seen if the player has rescued all of his band members within a four-hour time limit.

While moving between levels, the player takes part in a crazy minigame where he controls Joey's car as he drives towards the next area. While driving, Joey must avoid obstacles on his way, but he can also collect ammunition for his slingshot. Driving into an obstacle decreases the time limit.
