I have something of a soft spot for the old Philips Videopac games system. It’s the lesser loved contemporary to the overly popular Atari 2600 console.
What’s interesting is how similar, how close the two systems really were and how much of what made the Atari the machine it is came at the end, in the last year to eighteen months before the well known crash of ’83.
Back on to the Videopac and following success with TV Sports I thought I’d have a go at bringing some of the simple games from this era into Unity.
Some worked better than others but here is a collection of five simple games reminiscent of the first big age of video gaming.
