Nick Arcade was a US game show presented by Phil Moore that aired on the Nickelodeon television network in the United States from 1992 to 1993 airing originally during weekend afternoons. Re-runs continued to be shown from time to time. Two teams of contestants played two initial rounds, with the winner advancing to play against the "Video Game Wizard" of the day. All of the custom games used on Nick Arcade were implemented on Amiga computers.


Two teams would face off and play a series of games over a certain number of rounds in a competition to win the most points. The games available for play differed from round to round. Most of the video games shown were specifically created for the show. The most well-known segment was the end-game, in which contestants stood in front of a blue-screen stage and navigated through video game levels superimposed onto the background on a video monitor.

In addition to the custom games, Nick Arcade featured several home video games for multiple systems. These were played whenever a team landed on a Video Challenge square on the game board, at which point one of the team members was given a choice of five video games to complete a challenge. The other player wagered all or part of their score on whether or not the first player could complete the challenge. Both Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Genesis were featured in the Video Challenge segment.
