We're incredibly excited to announce that this years PLAY Expo Blackpool is sponsored by none other than Antstream Arcade!

Antstream Arcade allows you to play an ever-expanding library of thousands of retro games, including classics such as Space Invaders, Bubble Bobble, Bomb Jack and more, streamed straight to your computer, console, or mobile device. No downloads. No faff. Just instant fun!
They've also added exclusively coded challenges to take on your friends or foes, and every week Antstream run a tournament featuring a unique challenge to see where you stack up globally. This is retrogaming reinvented.
