Before my family could afford a PC, the only games we had at home were weird ’70s consoles with built-in monochrome games. My siblings and I would pool our pennies at car boot sales then play them until their fizzing, crackling deaths shortly after. Most games involved paddles and bats repurposed to abstractly represent sports.
I wish they’d been half as fun as some of the games in the Gazmo IV Classique, a free fictional vintage console created by Gary Penn. You can play with two models for free in your browser, click-clacking their buttons and playing their minimalist batballing games.
