    Old school gaming at its best!

    Be a flying ace, a race car champion, a tennis star, and a space pioneer all in one afternoon. That's right! Feathered hair, one-hit wonders, and the golden age of video games are back! Right here in the comfort of your own home. Remember kicking back on your beanbag and trying to get Pitfall Harry past the third pit on the right? How about breaking 15,000 points on River Raid to earn a patch?

    Those were the good ol' days. And they're back with a vengeance! Crank up the radio, pop in a cartridge, and take a step backwards in time with all your old favorites, including Pitfall 1 & 2, Commando, Freeway, Keystone Kapers, Seaquest, River Raid 1 & 2, Spider Fighter and many more.

    Sie können Kunstflieger, Formel 1-Champion, Tennisstars oder Weltraumpioniere sein – und das alles am selben Nachmittag.
    Sie können Kunstflieger, Formel 1-Champion, Tennisstar oder Weltraumpionier sein – und das alles am selben Nachmittag. Echt! Haare im Shag-Stil, One Hit Wonders und das goldene Zeitalter der Videospiele sind zurück! Und das alles in der Bequemlichkeit bei Ihnen zuhause. Wissen Sie es noch wie es war, als Sie in Ihrem Ohrensessel lehnten und versuchten, Pitfall Harry über das dritte Startloch zu bugsieren? Und wie war das mit dem Erreichen der 15.000 Punkte bei River Raid, um eine Plakette zu gewinnen? Das waren die guten alten Zeiten. Und sie sind mit voller Wucht zurück! Drehen Sie das Radio auf, legen Sie eine Kassette ein und reisen Sie mit Ihren alten Lieblingsfiguren wie Pitfall 1 und 2, Commando, Freeway, Keystone Kapers, Seaquest, River Raid 1 und 2, Spider Fighter und vielen anderen in die Vergangenheit zurück.
