Poor Gary… look at him, a veggie, zonked out. Totalled. This 1983 ad for Atari’s Riddle of the Sphinx tries to convey how hazardous video gaming can be.
Freedom! No more wires…
The Camerica Freedom Stick needed no cumbersome, tangly old wires, and was happy to interact with a number of different console brands.
Bubble Bobble…. a classic!
I spent a good many hours tackling this fun game. Also included on this ad are the titles Operation Wolf, Sky Shark, and Renegade.
Video excitement in the palm of your hand…
I love the artwork on this 1989 ad for Double Dragon from Tiger Electronics.
Another ad for Double Dragon –
Parker Brothers… Frogger, Popeye, and Q*bert
Poor Q*bert… in this ad he’s suffered damage to his nose from a removed price sticker – ouch! Shame he doesn’t have his usual little speech bubble above his head with his expletive written inside. Maybe Frogger is the culprit responsible for the price sticker removal… and Popeye is racing off to exact a swift punishment? 🙂
