Nick Arcade is a gaming program that users can download off the Nickelodeon website. Usually these games are free-trial games that users can play for 30 minutes before the game would end or pay a monthly fee of $19.99 for the full version. The games were made using the 3D Groove game engine called 3D Groove Games which was made to make games based on Nickelodeon and Nickjr cartoon shows. It lasted from 2003 until it's end in 2009 when the games and the Nick Arcade Website was shut down, making the games and the software become lost media. Since then users have been looking for other ways to get the games off the internet.
Software[edit | edit source]
The Nick arcade games can be download from the nick.com website. The first time you download a game from the Nick Arcade website it will install the Nick Arcade software along with the game you chose to download. When you start a Nick Arcade game the Nick Arcade software will open a menu where you select to play the game as either a free-trial game or pay a monthly fee of $19.99 to play the full version. If you play the free-trial version you have 30 minutes to play the game. When the 30 minutes is over the game will end and exit back to Nick Arcade software where you will be asked to pay the $19.99 monthly fee if you want to play the full version.https://www.commonsensemedia.org/website-reviews/nickarcade

End of Nick Arcade[edit | edit source]
In 2009 3D Grooves shut down it's website, because of this Nickelodeon decided to end Nick Arcade by shutting down the Nick Arcade website and removing it from the main Nickelodeon website. When this happened the games and the Nick Arcade software became lost media and also virtually impossible to find online. This frustrated people who were looking for downloads of the game. Also around this time if you were to put in the Nick Arcade cds that contains free-trial version of Nick Arcade games that Nickelodeon released into your computer and downloaded the games a error message would come up preventing you from playing the games at all. However since 2015 full versions of Nick Arcade games have been made available to download off the internet.
