Probably the slalom ski sport I vaguely keep in mind enjoying on a HP85A my dad introduced residence from work some weekend. Can’t discover a video of it sadly. I keep in mind the flags drawn on the display screen, and utilizing keys to manage a dotted line going from the highest of the display screen down.
Or presumably the Philips pong console we had. Do not keep in mind for positive if this was earlier. You might play commonplace two-player pong, or some sort of “soccer/soccer” variant (principally nonetheless pong, however with two or three paddles per participant), and a solo-variant the place you bounced the ball towards a set wall and simply tried to remain alive for so long as potential.
Then a Zenith Z/80 that you possibly can 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 sport was undoubtedly the primary sport me and my pals performed extra critically, 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 sport I nonetheless play every now and then 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.
