Initially, the company sought licenses for the early 1970s and 1980s arcade games from Namco, Midway, and Atari, then later added games from the 1990s and beyond. Most systems ship with between two and twelve games from the same family or genre of games that shared the same control set; for example, their Pac-Man cabinet includes Pac-Man Plus, while Centipede includes three other Atari games that used trackball controls, Millipede, Missile Command, and Crystal Castles. The control panels are modeled based on the original games. For multiplayer fighting and brawler games that support more than two players, such as the four-player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the smaller scale of the cabinet had initially created problems with players crowding around the controls. Arcade1Up created special full-size controller decks to give enough room for each player to have space at the cabinet.

The continued rising interest in retrogaming helped Arcade1Up to strong sales, and by May 2020 they had sold their one millionth unit. They also saw a large surge in sales at the COVID-19 pandemic started in March 2020, forcing many people to be quarantined at home and turning to video games as a pastime. From March to May 2020, sales had grown on average of 96% week-over-week. (Source:
