Retro Games @ Super Shakes


If you have been down to the store you may have noticed some of the music in the air is from a video game or two. Koji Kondo’s repetitive yet addictive loops from the Zelda series, Mick Gordon’s Guitar heavy Killer Instinct themes, the sounds of a Pokemon centre or the 8-bit atmosphere of Fez. But a sense of games doesn’t stop there…

If you have been keeping our eyes on the specials board you will have already noticed some more. So far we have created themed milkshake specials dedicated to Mario, Halo, Animal Crossing, Overwatch, Mass Effect, Zelda, Comic Jumper, Monkey Island, Katamari, Grim Fandango, Gears of War, many a Pokemon and more.

Also if you peruse the comic rack regularly you may have noticed that we stock video game tie-in comics as well. Notably Sonic the Hedgehog, Assassins Creed, Tomb Raider, and Dark Souls among others.

So it may may come as no surprise that here at Super Shakes we don’t just love comics we love games too. From Super Mario Bros. to Firewatch we are a fan of all things playable which is why we also have our arcade machine in store!

With two player capabilities featuring a pair of sticks and some bashable buttons we have a cabinet packed full of fighters, adventures, platformers and puzzles. With old school classics like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, to newer arcade favourites like Street Fighter and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles side-scroller we have even more to offer gaming fans. We rotate games weekly so keep an eye on our twitter for updates of which game is available. Head down and try to get your initials on the leader board, or simply re-live some moments of your youth (Or just live if you are young).

Head down to grab a Shake, a story and now a quick  game too.
