Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!


 
In a surprise move in the Arcade of Webkinz World, five old retired games have been brought back from retirement and are now available for Deluxe-only members. However, when a Deluxe game is the Game Of The Day, it can be played by all members, whether Deluxe or not.
 
The returning games are Iceberg Escapades, Skater Kat, Dashing Dolphin, Jazz Monsters and Zingoz Bounce. Watch for when these games become the Game Of The Day and can be played by all members.
 
Today's Game Of The Day is Iceberg Escapades - an early version of the newer Waddell's Icecap Adventure - and can be played by anyone today. Try it, you'll like it!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

This is so awesome and such a great idea on Ganz' part! I have never played most of those games and can't wait to see what they're like! Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Webberlily! Today was a great update!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Oh nice surprise can't wait to play these games!!!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Wow I never got to play those games! I hope the trophies aren't available, for the sake of their value

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

awesome to see these games are back but I feel bad that it is deluxe only like i am taking away from other members

well i would like to be able to get the trophy but I think it would lessen the value ^^^ like you said

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Tried paying the games...man, am I awful! Seriously, I am glad that they reintroduced these games instead of taking away more games and making them Deluxe. I might have to bribe DS to try Skater Cat for me-the trophy looks like fun.

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Oh my goodness!
I have wanted these back for AGES! So disappointed when they took them off.
Glad to be deluxe right now.

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

I'm so proud of Ganz! Overall with bringing back these games, the Things to Do Menu, and allowing us to name our own rooms, they have really been stepping up and it is giving me a ton of hope that these things will continue! However, I am pretty disappointed that they changed the name of Icecap Adventure, the way the games look in some parts, and the buttons and the scoreboards from the old look to the new look. But I'm still very glad that they're back.

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

This is wonderful & if it is the game of the day we can all play it,Fantastic thanks for the info This is wonderful!!!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

I think Ganz is doing a wonderful job lately! I am so happy that they are making deluxe-only games available to regular members when they are game of the day. I think it's a great advertising forum for them, so that they can have an ad after the game telling people that it's one of the benefits of deluxe membership, but still allowing everyone to have some fun with it. (I hated it when they had a daily activity listed for everyone, but when you went to do it, it said it was deluxe-only. If they are only going to allow something for deluxe, they should be listed as a deluxe activity, not a regular activity.) But to allow us regular members to play the deluxe games on occasion is a wonderful move! It makes me feel very good about Ganz and Webkinz. And it will be fun to try these new games when they are game-of-the-day! Thank you!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Thank you so much for this Ganz. I am so happy to be able to play these games now!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Yes!!!! Being a late starter on Webkinz, I never got to play any of the "oldies", but was told by all of my friends that they were "So Much FUN!!!! Too bad you didn't join sooner." Great job, GANZ!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Yes, Yes, Yes, I love this! Ganz is really helping everyone with new games, having the game of the day open to all, and collections!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

I was so surprised when I saw this earlier today on my account!!!
I loved Jazz Monsters so much. And Skater Kat, the dolphin game, and the icecap game, I wasn't around for (at least I don't think so.) so i was like COOL!! But I was SO sad when Jazz Monsters was retired. I remember that one.

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

I, too, started on WW too late to play most of those games. And although I am not a Deluxe member, I will get to play them when they are the Game of the Day! Thanks, Ganz!

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Glad to see some of the old games to come back. Hope they are the game of the day a lot, that way those of us that are not deluxe can play them. Got me thinking about going deluxe even if it's just for a few month. 0

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

What? That's awesome!!! Dashing Dolphin sounds cool

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Saw these games yesterday. Thanks for the information.

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Glad to see old games coming back. The only one I've ever played before was Zingoz Bounce. My daughter loved that game, so she was super excited. Let me just say, I'm still as bad at that game as I was before. I've tried all the new games, and people with trophies have nothing to fear from me. I'm very, very lousy at playing them. I couldn't make it past a block in Skater Kat, and I wondered how on earth would I ever make it past 16 levels. I definitely do not see trophies in my future, but it will be fun to try. By just the name alone, I think the Dashing Dolphins game will be my favorite.

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Couldn't play it yesterday sadly. I can't wait to try one of those games

Re: Five Retired Arcade Games Return to Webkinz World!

Thank you ganz!
