TERRAMEX (1987) Grandslam Entertainments Ltd., Bug Byte Premier - ZX-Spectrum 5 exploradores intentando encontrar al Doctor "Albert Eyestrain" la única persona capaz de salvar la humanidad ya que un Asteroide se dirige hacia la tierra amenazando a toda vida sobre el planeta, cada explorador deberá encontrar al Profesor y a los materiales necesarios para construir el "Deflector Positrónico de Asteroides" que necesitará para evitar la catástrofe. Creo que siempre digo que lo que diferencia a un juego del montón de una obra maestra o un juego que trasciende en el tiempo es algo tan simple como "LA IDEA" y eso es exactamente de lo que TERRAMEX puede presumir... una Gran Idea! Si bien el juego podía clasificarse bajo el género de Vídeo Aventura... la historia, los elementos y escenarios fantásticos y sobre todo la posibilidad de elegir distintos personajes para jugar la historia (sin modificarla en esencia, pero si en detalles y final) así como el hecho de poder usar infinita cantidad de objetos para cumplir nuestra misión... hacían de este juego un algo único, distinto, super adictivo y una experiencia disfrutable de principio a fin. Se lo recomiendo a todos, dedicarle unas partidas en la plataforma que más gusten, aún 30 años despues, es casi una obligación para cualquier fanático de los Video Juegos! 😉🕹🔭📡 #Nostalgia #zxspectrum #zxspectrum48k #spectrum #spectrum48k #sinclairspectrum #grandslamentertainments #bugbytepremier #terramex #retrogamer #retrocomputer #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrogaming #retrogames #8bitgaming #8bitgames #zxspectrumgames #spectrumgames #oldgames #retro #retromaniac #retromaniacos #8bits #8bitsgames #retrocomputing #gamesaddict #videogames #retrovideogames #videogamescollector

Evening to everyone welcome to all you new followers I'm truly grateful for your time. D.Y.K That On January 19th 1915 Neon Lighting Tube Was Patented? The neon-lighting tube was patented by Frenchman Georges Claude. In 1923, Georges Claude and his French company Claude Neon, introduced neon gas signs to the United States, by selling two to a Packard car dealership in Los Angeles for $1,250 apiece. Neon lighting quickly became a popular fixture in outdoor advertising. . 1983 - Apple Lisa Is Introduced, The Apple Lisa, the first commercial personal computer to have a graphical user interfaceand a computer mouse, is announced. At a cost of $9,995, the Lisa ended up being a commercial failure for Apple, but many of the technologies developed for the Lisa made its way into the Macintosh computer. . 1993 - IBM Loses $5 Billion, IBM announces a nearly $5 billion loss for fiscal year 1992. Several years of losses in the early 1990’s were the result of sweeping changes to the computer industry in the 1980’s that IBM was slow to recognize. Ironically, the biggest catalyst to this change was the rise of the personal computer. IBM helped create the most popular personal computing platform, but lost control of the platform to Microsoft and “IBM-compatible” clones of their original design. The monster they created in the PC industry nearly caused their own collapse. One indicator of this shift was the phrase “no one ever got fired for buying IBM” was replaced with “no one ever got fired for buying Microsoft”. IBM eventually reorganized its business, focused on its core strengths, and has recovered. . 1999 - BlackBerry Introduced, RIM introduces the BlackBerry. The original BlackBerry devices were not phones, but instead were the first mobile devices. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #tech #history #retro #computerhistorymuseum #geek #vintage #trivia #retrotech #computerscience #techhistory #technologyhistory #oldtechnology #computers #nerd #computinghistory #oldschool #informationtechnology #oldcomputer #internethistory #thisdayinhistory #retrocomputing #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #vintagecomputer

Evening everyone welcome back, I hope you all have had a great day!. Me it's been paperwork and sorting of our servers while waiting in a collection from DX an guess it's a no show 🙈🙈🙈. . D.Y.K The First Plane Landed on a Ship on January 18th 1911? Eugene B. Ely landed on the deck of the USS Pennsylvania stationed in San Francisco harbor, the first time an aircraft landed on a ship. . 1938 - J.W. Bryce Outlines the Harvard Mark I. J.W. Bryce writes a memorandum formalizing IBM's development of a computing machine for Harvard: the Harvard Mark I, completed in 1944. The Harvard Mark I was the first fully automatic machine to be completed and computed three additions or subtractions a second; its memory stored 72 numbers. Several of J.W. Bryce's major inventions—high-speed multiplying, dividing, cross adding, the read-out, and the emitter—were utilized in the Harvard Mark I. . 1983 - Franklin Ace 1200 During the CP/M Show, Franklin Electronic Publichers revealed the Franklin Ace 1200 computer. The main feature of this computer (like the other Franklin computers before) was the fact they copied Apple’s ROM and operating system code. . 1995 - The domain name yahoo.com is registered. Previously, the web site was called “David and Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide Web”. I think they chose wisely. . 2005 - The Superjumbo is Unveiled, The Airbus A380, the world’s largest commercial jet and nicknamed the “Superjumbo”, is unveiled at a ceremony in Toulouse, France. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #tech #history #retro #computerhistorymuseum #geek #vintage #trivia #retrotech #computerscience #techhistory #technologyhistory #oldtechnology #computers #nerd #computinghistory #oldschool #informationtechnology #oldcomputer #internethistory #thisdayinhistory #retrocomputing #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #vintagecomputer

MICROPROSE SOCCER (1988) MicroProse Software, Sensible Software - Commodore 64 Si señores... han pasado casi 30 años... y en tiempos en que los PES y los FIFA se disputan el "mercado" (que fea palabra esa, que en mi opinión arruina la esencia de los Video Juegos) uno no puede dar la espalda a un juego tan icónico como este... en aquellos años era, para los fanáticos del fútbol, lo más cercano que teníamos en nuestras casas a jugar el Tehkan World Cup de las Recreativas (Coin Op) pero con el agregado de que este MicroProse Soccer permitía jugar dos estilos de Fútbol el Tradicional de campo (Outdoor) y el de Sala (Indoor) que hacía de este juego una experiencia genialmente dinámica, ya que se jugaba con menos jugadores, un campo de juego más pequeño y el agregado de mejora al gameplay que proporcionaban los rebotes en las paredes de la cancha! GENIALIDAD DE LOS CHICOS DE SENSIBLE SOFTWARE que merece ser recordada! 😉🕹⚽ #Nostalgia #commodore #commodore64 #commodore128 #videogamescollector #c64 #c64games #microprosesoftware #sensiblesoftware #microprosesoccer #retrogamer #retrocomputer #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrogaming #retrogames #8bitgaming #8bitgames #commodoregames #commodore64games #oldgames #retro #retromaniac #microprose #8bits #8bitsgames #retrocomputing #gamesaddict #videogames #retrovideogames
