Had something similar to this in the 70's

4 lines of leds, left right joystick and a fire button.

you had to time it right to hit a led that was dropping down from the top.

To top it all it had sound effects too!!!!

What about Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy?!!

Remember the first "Flight Sim" on the ZX81? You had to guide a little cursor down to a white mark on the screen using the cursor keys. That's if the thing didn't crash while you were typing in the code....!!

well certainly not 30yrs or younger (wish i was ) but well remember and participated in the glory days of the atari spectrum and comodore

i think it was the atari 2600 that brought the delights of astroid space invaders and frogger to our front room

not long after that little bro was modifying code on the zx spectrum and shortly after that i had a real pc in the shape of a 286 which i promptly took to pieces and put back together again it was never the same again thank you for the flashback

A mate of mine sent me a game he wrote which was a variant of a ZX game. Predates my gaming memory but reminded me of the above magazine and of how much I loved my Amiga.

For all I like modern graphics I miss the pure gameplay supremacy of some of the yesteryear games.
