An Entirely Different Sort Of LEGO Video Game

Dissatisfied by the video game LEGO offerings released thus far, LEGO enthusiast Ben Fleskes takes matters into his own hands, crafting a working Pac-Man arcade cabinet made almost entirely of LEGO bricks.

I’m not actually sure if Fleskes is dissatisfied or not, but I do know he’s got mad LEGO building skills. The electronics and controls might be normal, but the heart of this tabletop arcade cabinet is all LEGO. Housed within this 34-inch tall cabinet is a Jamma 48-1 board, allowing Ben and friends to play 48 different old-school arcade titles, with the help of a switchable 4-way/8-way joystick.

Best of all, Ben created this without altering on LEGO brick. Every piece is a piece you could find on store shelves, meaning you could probably build this yourself, if you had far more free time than you’re ever likely to have.

  • Oh man, if lego didn’t cost more than blood or gold, or gold-plated blood I’d so be building a defender cabinet. Though Super-breakout would probably be more apt – you could do a 3D breakout with the bricks right there on the Marquee.

  • I’m so glad i don’t know who made that. if i did i’d be buying a one way flight to make all sorts of violent love to them…

    Just goes to show – ANYTHING can be made better by lego

  • Oh. Wow. That’s awesome…

    I love LEGO, but it’s expensive, and I’m not patient enough to design things before I build them…

    A tip of the hat to you, Mr Fleskes.
