Whilst conducting *Research* you find all sorts of interesting things.
When I talk about *Research* I mean I was
procrastinating reading through the BBC website. I find them a great source of interesting information and not remotely wasting valuable writing time. Okay, maybe a little.
Anyway, my school years saw the birth of the Space Invader. Kids today, with their XBox One or PS4 don’t realise the lack of gaming available in the seventies and eighties.
I spent much of my teenage years in and around arcades and/or a café or shop with a good arcade game. I know, misspent youth, but happy times and great memories.
I also had an old Atari computer, one of those with a slot for a game cartridge.
Plug and play.
Great way to play Donkey Kong or the like. A way to create the thrill of the arcade in your own living room!
Back to the purpose of the post. The Beeb had a link to a site where you can play vintage arcade games like Track and Field or Gravatar for Free.
They are basic. They don’t have sound yet, but they do let you revisit your youth!

Did you embrace the arcade game? Any favourites?
Happy retro-gaming and thanks for reading.
