UPDATE 1.1 (Exclusive for Unreal Engine 5+!) -

Added 3 new demo games, one fully 3D, and 2 '2.5D' clones of classics. Bringing the total to 5 demo games.

Added more classic arcade features to the core system, like, extra life on points threshold, collect for stage win, stage win on point score (with very basic scaling), etc.

Upgraded all effects to Niagara systems and removed all legacy content.

Bugfixes, consolidation, more modularity, optimization, and some organization work done as well. (An ongoing task with all my work!)
