Game On

Game On logoTomorrow, Game On opens to the public at the Science Museum, London, and continues until 25 February 2007. This hands-on exhibition is devoted to those classic arcade games, such as Space Invaders, which drove us all potty. Unfortunately it misses out on the home computer underground scene of the 1980's and early 90's (pre-internet!). Remember the Medway Boys and their entertaining lists of ripped-off games? Remember Paccie Bash, that evil, racist, yet strangely prophetic game in which the player shoots little brown men wearing turbans? (Did our fuzz ever catch the perpetrator of that nasty? Will the international fuzz ever catch Osama Bin Laden?) Bad news: prices are £8.50 adult, £6.50 children/silver surfers. That's 76%. Ripoff! So dump the wife and kids on Granny and go enjoy yourself. Better still, click Coxsoft Museum for links to ZX Spectrum emulators and a vast treasury of classic Speccy games.
