THE A-Z OF COOL COMPUTER GAMES

Jack Railton



 

Do you remember what it was like when computers were new? When they seemed mysterious and even exciting? If you have ever had a magical gaming moment - on a home computer or in an arcade - then The A to Z of Cool Computer Games is the book for you!


Prepare to download a diverse and highly entertaining plethora of computational nostalgia that includes sections on:

  • The Computers - Looking back at the systems of yore from 'Acorn' to the 'ZX Spectrum'.

  • The Games - All the most important and best-remembered titles (or perhaps, not remembered, such as 'Metagalactic Llamas Battle at the Edge of Time') will be lovingly recalled.

  • The Arcades, the most frightening kids and the rules of engagement.

  • The Paraphernalia - Joysticks, tape boxes, manuals, characters, TV ads, magazines and loads of other ancillary ephemera.
