The Arcade Machine is an object found in all games trough the Scribblenauts franchise. Depending on the game you are playing, it behaves in a different way.
Children will interact with this object while expressing the emotion. Gamers also interaact with this object, but expressing the emotion instead.
It's not suitable to be placed underwater, due to the fact it produces electrcity.
Playing with this object in the original Scribblenauts game only creates a white particle and plays the video game sound effect.
Super Scribblenauts and Scribblenauts Remix
When interacted, a video game will come up. Rockets are constantly coming down, and the player must tap them to blow them up. If a rocket hits the blocks at the bottom, both will blow up. If a rocket manages to go through the barrier, you lose. Once you get enough points, some rockets will change red when they reach the bottom screen. These rockets move much faster. Your score is based off of how many rockets you successfully stop (1 rocket= 1 point.) Your high score is put on your file selection screen. Upon use of the machine, Maxwell will recieve the "Break Time" Merit. As of Remix update 2.3, the mini game can be played on this.

In the 3DS version of Unlimited it only plays the 8-bit music which also can be heard in the Character Selection screen for in the 3DS.
