FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

25 YEARS OF ENTERTAINMENT!

DeKalb, IL (January 11, 2010) – Fighting in a boxing match, saving the universe from
space aliens, or finding your way through a maze while avoiding ghosts has been the
norm at Star Worlds Arcade now for 25 years! This is almost unheard of today in the
video game industry.

Patrick O’Malley of DeKalb, IL started Star Worlds Arcade when he acquired too many
games to fit in his parents’ garage. “My parents wanted the games and all my friends
out of their house,” O’Malley says. Star Worlds Arcade opened in 1985 in the small
town of Maple Park, IL and later moved to its current location at 1234 E Lincoln Hwy. in
DeKalb, IL. Star Worlds Arcade has been described by James McGovern of
Retrogaming News as “a living time capsule of classic arcade games and atmosphere.”

Star Worlds Arcade has always been a quaint arcade dedicated to offering video games
and pinball games that are clean and well maintained for their customers. They have
been covered in newsprint, local TV, Gameroom Magazine, participated in a national
video arcade campaign, and has been blogged about in numerous on-line video game
related web sites.

Star Worlds will be offering up many great promotions this year celebrating 25 years of
FUN, FAMILY and FRIENDS. For more information about this entertainment venue,
look them up on the Internet at starworldsarcade.com or better yet, stop by and check
out the place in person.

About Star Worlds Arcade

Star Worlds Arcade is an independently and locally owned company located in DeKalb,
IL. It is a classic video arcade that has survived since the 1980s and maintains a clean
and friendly family atmosphere.

Question,

The Black Hawk Motel is not in the database yet. Should it be? And if so, what all games are in it? I definitely see DK and can hear TMNT in the background(is it just two players or are players 3 and 4 on the other side?). I could probably make out a few more from the vid you submitted on youtube. I definitely heard Super Pac-Man... did it come from that cocktail table behind the Judge Dredd prototype?

hi,

Thanks for noticing this. We updated the Black Hawks imfo. I also added our other hotel/motel game rooms that we stock in the Wisconsin Dells.

Thanks much
