Family Computer

Before the playstation, nintendo, xbox..we had the family computer. It was just the arrow keys and the buttons a and b. The games were in a cassette looking container.

My favorite game back then was battle city. It was a tank game. The players had to destroy the enemy tanks and prevent them from shooting the eagle.There are some flashing enemy tanks which carried power ups. My favorite was the star, it changes the look of your tank and you can shoot faster.

Whats your favorite family computer game?🙂

Do you remember playing Twin Bee?? and I love Space Battle also! haha! There were so many games back then and they were all very simple yet addictive and enjoyable!

    omg! i remember this console!!! hahaha… i never had this one but my cousins did (they’re 30 plus now) and they never let me play… what i remember is that they had to blow on the part that you insert in the console to make it work… did they also have a game where you’re a spaceship and it’s just flying forward and you have to kill/destroy all the other spaceships and rocks that are headed your way? i just remember playing nintendo, especially mario, tetris, and duck hunt

    You know, I actually recently bought one again, because the games were simply fun. Unlike the games of today, where everything sort of feels like chores, the games of yesteryear focused on the fun factor.

    And I’ve been rallying it for years, if there’s a game that deserves to be reborn, it’s Battle City.

    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers!

    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties.

    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
