This application belongs to a group of potentially unwanted programs that are associated with arcade gaming websites. ArcadeTwist is practically the same as Arcadeparlor, ArcadeGiant, CrushArcade, ArcadeCake, and so on. Just like its predecessors, ArcadeTwist comes with an official homepage. You can access the main arcade gaming site via This website also features the Uninstall section that tells you how to remove ArcadeTwist from your computer. However, the official download link for the application is nowhere to be found. Although the link should be there on the site, it is far more likely that users download ArcadeTwist bundled with freeware.

Freeware applications are available for download at a number of file sharing and torrent websites. Users often do not realize that third-party installers from random file sharing sites often distribute adware. For example, you might think you are installing one program on your computer, but in reality, you end up setting up ArcadeTwist and a number of other unwanted applications. It would be possible to avoid it if you read all the installation wizard’s steps through and through. Unfortunately, users tend to breeze through the setup because they want to launch some particular program as soon as possible.

Once ArcadeTwist gets installed on your computer, the program adds an extension to your default browser. Technically, it should help you access the arcade gaming sites faster, but that is not all to it. ArcadeTwist also monitors your web browsing, collecting information on your search queries and the websites you visit. As a result, ArcadeTwist displays commercial advertisements that are related to your likes and preferences. This increases the chance of your clicking the ads, but that is definitely something you should never do.

Please remove ArcadeTwist from your computer right now and then invest in a legitimate antimalware application.
