Through an update to the discussion forums, players were guided to a new company website - Arcade Aid. A link through the forums led directly to a puzzle of visual play on game titles (see below).

Restoring Dreams Since 1986
At Arcade Aid, we know video games from the inside out. From motherboards to joysticks, we’ve got everything you need to refurbish your favorite machine. And our friendly staff has the know-how to identify your problem and to help you fix it.

Games for Gamers
We totally get gamers because we totally ARE gamers. Our technicians understand your need to climb a cube-shaped pyramid filled with snakes, and we want to help you reach the top. We also share your desire to ride a bike through a suburban jungle and chuck newspapers at things. And princesses? We save them all the time.

Flynn Fans
Now, for all you Flynn fans out there, you’ll be happy to know that Arcade Aid specializes in parts and accessories for classic Encom games like "Space Paranoids," "Arc Wars" and, of course, "TRON."
So, take a look, spend some quarters, and get your game on with Arcade Aid.

[edit] Parts & Art

Joysticks are an integral part of any great game, and we’ve got plenty to choose from...
  • Stick It to ‘Em
  • Joy to the World
  • Pivot Patrol
  • Grip ‘N’ Go
  • The Directionator

You want trackballs? We’re the biggest game in town. Just check out our selection...
  • The Roll-Master 3000
  • Ball in the Family
  • Palms of Fury
  • Track Attack
  • Rockin’ Roll


Arcade Art
What’s the point of having a classic stand-up game unit if the panel art is all scratched up? Or worse, nonexistent?
The crew at Arcade Aid is here to right that wrong with our unique selection of authentic arcade signage. Choose from the following:

Space Paranoids
Recognizers are, and always have been, larger than life, and that’s just how they appear on our mint-condition side art for “Space Paranoids.” Look out above!

Video Game Poster

Kevin Flynn’s magnum opus deserves to be decked out with the best art elements around. That’s why we offer everything you need to refurbish your “TRON” machine, right down to the decal that goes on the spin-knob controller.

Even an obscure game like “Kraz-Bot” gets the royal treatment here at Arcade Aid. We pride ourselves on providing a wide array of art for every game title in the digital spectrum.

Here’s another gem that doesn’t register on most gamers’ radar screens, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the bomb (pardon the pun).

Freeze, perp! If you want game art for this Encom classic, look no further than Arcade Aid. Our selection is so great, it’s almost criminal.

As you can see, works of art don’t just belong in a museum – there’s plenty of eye candy to be had at the old arcade!

They can't stop talking about us!
Just listen to what some of our satisfied gamers had to say about the excellent service and selection we provide at Arcade Aid.

"Before I contacted Arcade Aid, I couldn't get my frog across the street without getting squashed like a toad pancake. All it needed was a new joystick, so now I'm back in business and hopping logs with ease. Thanks, Arcade Aid!" --Fred B.

"You know that game where you're supposed to jump the barrels that the psychotic gorilla is throwing at you? Yeah, well imagine how frustrating it would be if you couldn't jump. Arcade Aid had the perfect replacement button. Take that, you dirty ape!" --Alice J.

"Woo-hoo! I can kill aliens again! Oh, and Arcade Aid is a good store, too." --G. Henkins
