You aren’t going to believe it when I tell you, but I had at least as much fun with this as all the other kids had with their Sony PS2 systems. I picked this up from my dad’s cellar the other day, in hopes of playing the Mario clone, Monster Bash and TD2 on it again.
Those are all the pictures that I took before I hooked it up for the first time. The question is, of course, after all these years of neglect, will it still run?
That’s the original keyboard that came with it. I scavenged it from the same basement about a year ago. It’s been cleaned up, and aside from one broken spring, it’s in great condition.
It’s awfully tempting to try and get my hands on a fitting monitor for this set-up. I think I’ve got a mouse for it somewhere (I also know that I turned the original one into a camera remote control. Stupid, stupid, stupid!). I’d love to play all my childhood games in their original, flickery EGA/VGA glory.
