I grew up when games were games.
CPU Cycles were precious.
16bits were a luxury, DMA controllers the answer, and assembler all the rage.
My favorite still is ROBOTRON 2084, Eugene Jarvis and Larry DeMar created quite a classic.
Williams had by far the best sound effects, mixing both realistic and sci-fi creations.
Robotron, Defender, Stargate, Joust, and Bubbles.
After hundreds, maybe thousands of games since 1982, it still gets my blood going.
I tried to upload a 10 minute video of my playing to level 50, WordPress complained.
Besides, who wants to watch someone else play a game.
Here is a short 10 minutes of play including
Level 7 the Tank wave, crowded level 9 and Level 10 the “Brain” wave.
