The original and wonderful 6-switch Atari 2600 (1977) woody playing Donkey Kong (below) and Adventure (below-left), and a Sega computer system (below-right), the exact specifics of the latter escaping me, but it was playing Hyper Sports.
Then eight slices of retro computing goodness in a number of machines, some of which I hadn’t even heard of before – but most of which weren’t hooked up, starting with a Timex Computer 2048 (1984) and a Timex Sinclair 2068 (1983) on the top line. Below that, a Dragon 200 (1984) and a Jupiter Ace 4000 (1983).
Then take delight in an Oric 1 (1983) and a Commodore 116 (1984) – yes, not a Commodore 16, but a ‘116’, a cost-reduced alternative which was only sold in Europe. The octuplet is rounded off with a trio of coloured Sony Playstation consoles and an Atari 520ST (1985), the machine I had back in 1987.
And two more from this section, a classic Sinclair ZX80 (1980) and an Amiga CD32 console, which wasn’t working here and after being released in September 1993, was discontinued only months later in April 1994.
