Nick Arcade

Show Summary

RETURNING SEPTEMBER 2014

Welcome to the Nick Arcade guide at TV.com . Two teams of kids and grown ups competed. To start, one member of each team played a face-off game where the winner got 25 points and control. The team in control got to move Mikey on a grid of about 15 squares. The object was to move him up, down, left or right towards a goal. On each square was an event. The host referred to these as the four P's "points, puzzles, pop quizzes and prizes." So, some squares would be worth free points, some worth a free prize, some had video puzzles for points, and some squares contained pop quizzes. There, the team that landed on the square would pick a topic and a buzz-in question would be asked for 25 points. If a team hit the monster for the day, they lost control. If a video challenge came up, the team that moved Mikey there would choose one of five video games on stage. One member of the team would risk any or all of their points to that point. The other had to meet or beat the "Wizard's Challenge" in 30 seconds. Points were added or subtracted accordingly. If a team reached the goal, the team that did not move Mikey picked from the pop quiz categories and the other team tried to answer a question for 50 points. If time ran out before anyone reached the goal, Mikey moved straight to the goal and the question was asked as a buzz-in. A second round was played with bigger point values, and a goal worth 100 points. The team in the lead after this round won the game. In the bonus round, the winner's entered the "Video Zone" in an attempt to win cash and prizes. In one minute, the team had to conquer a level each individually and face the "Game Wizard" together to win it all. Each level completed was worth 50 and a prize.

Nick Arcade was nominated for a CableACE Award in 2002.

  • I loved this show.

    I used to watch Nick Arcade when I was younger. I don't know anybody that has been on that show, but I know four cast members from Salute Your Shorts and Clarissa Explains It All and Welcome Freshmen. The Red Team was my favorite even though they didn't win all the time. One of the games that was played in the Video Challenge that I liked was Sonic the Hedgehog. My favorite part was when the players went into the Video Zone to battle the bad guys. Some of them didn't beat all of them. I wouldn't have won if I was a contestant on that show. I was a little kid when the show was taped.moreless
  • One of my all-time favorate Nickelodeon game shows.

    Well just decided to post my first ever review of 2008 by dedicating this review to "Nickelodeon GAS: Games and Sports for Kids" which shut down on Janruary 1, 2008 at 6:00am being replaced with the 24/7 network of "The N".



    So anyways, Nick Arcade was a great show if you like classic video games, specifically the ones for the arcade from the 90s. This game is easilly the best game show (and quite possibly the best show) that Nickelodeon has ever aired. They had games such as Sonic the Hedgehog (well the prototype to Sonic 2 basically). I also like how the kids get to be inside the video game and use their body to get through this game. You know, the whole concept of going inside a video game world, you know what that reminds me of? Captain N: The Game Master, because the plot to that show is a simular concept to what Nick Arcade is, except Nick Arcade is a game show, so I guess they're trying to take Captain N to a new reality. It was a great show shot at Nickelodeon Studios. It looked fun to be in, especailly with Mikey who is controlled by the audience by telling him which way to go.



    This is a great show and the last thing I could say to you guys is, Happy New Year, Happy 2008, and last but not least R.I.P. Nickelodeon GAS which lasted from 1999-2007, and to dedicate that, check out my blog about that.moreless
  • This classic Nick game show puts kids' video game skills to the ultimate test. Nick Arcade is the ultimate video challenge!

    In this classic Nickelodeon game show, two teams compete for the chance to battle one of three game masters in the Video Zone. In the game, they move a video adventurer named Mikey around the screen as they answer questions, solve puzzles, earn bonus points and prizes, and play actual video games in the Video Challenge. The winning team gets to go into the Video Zone to go up against Scorsha, Merlock, or Mongo (the game wizzards).



    Sure this show has very few episodes, but it remains a Nick classic for those who are video game buffs. I'm the Super Mario Master! Watch this show and see for your self.moreless

    Nick Arcade was one of my favorite shows ever. It ( like I already state ) had two teams, usually consisting of one boy and one girl, competing to win the game for prizes by answering questions, playing games, and solving puzzles. The host, Phil Moore, acts a bit extreme at times, but he's definitely a fantastic host. The games are those that are usually on systems such as the SEGA Genesis. Nick Arcade, luckily, is still on, but only at 4 A.M. (EST) on Nickelodeon Gas. Knowing how Nickelodeon Gas has been doing lately, (not so good) Nick Arcade may not be allowed much longer, so you should watch as many episodes and tape as many episodes as you can.



    My favorite part of this show is easily when the winning team plays against the Game Wizard. The teams dress up and go into a room where they are put on a monitor as if they were inside a video game. It's super entertaining, especially funny, because most of the time the player's have no idea what they are doing and can't see what's going on. Still, like I said, this is a show that I can't praise enough.



    There really isn't much more to say. I only gave the show the rating I did simply because I haven't watched it enough. I only get the chance to watch Nick Arcade during the summer when I'm out of school, which is super cool, and because of the fact that there just aren't enough episodes. This is the end of my review. Now treat yourself to A.) Staying up and watching Nick Arcade or B.) Calling a digital cable phone number to get Nick Gas A.S.A.P!moreless
