Probably the slalom ski recreation I vaguely bear in mind enjoying on a HP85A my dad introduced house from work some weekend. Can’t discover a video of it sadly. I bear in mind the flags drawn on the display screen, and utilizing keys to regulate a dotted line going from the highest of the display screen down.
Or presumably the Philips pong console we had. Do not bear in mind for certain if this was earlier. You may play customary two-player pong, or some form of “soccer/soccer” variant (mainly nonetheless pong, however with two or three paddles per participant), and a solo-variant the place you bounced the ball in opposition to a set wall and simply tried to remain alive for so long as doable.
Then a Zenith Z/80 that you could possibly play snakes on, plus Zork and another textual content journey, and some different text-only video games (as a result of that pc solely had monochrome text-mode, no graphics or shade in any respect). That snakes recreation was positively the primary recreation me and my buddies performed extra severely, in all probability hours per day.
Then a PC XT with monochrome display screen and some video games like Snipes, Big Top, King’s Quest I, and Microsoft Decathlon. Snipes is a recreation I nonetheless play at times and that’s good for actual not just for nostalgia.
In that approximate order. I used to be probably not sufficiently old to recollect many particulars.
