What games were in Soviet children
Again nostalgic memories. This time toys.
For the very young, some things from that time seem quite strange, but really then was the era when television was considered a luxury item, but many people do not dream of VCRs and stereos. And it does not compare to how some today zhazhdat get a new iPhone or the latest Playstation. In my childhood, the children had their own, especially toys, which are the dream of every child.
This is not the app on Google Play, it's a cult Soviet car simulator - the dream of every Soviet boys. The rotating disk to create great illusion that the car is actually traveling. A ritual of starting the game key, these pedals, steering wheel and gearbox enthralled all the boys. Looking from today's perspective, the management of the magnetic machine is perceived approximately as negotiations for smartphone users on the radio during the First World War. But then it was considered the coolest "gaming" devices. By the way, the machine had a 3 speed! Game worth 10 rubles.
There was a boy in the Soviet Union, did not dream of the railway, made in the GDR. A huge box with a set of different models almost real trains, wagons, rails shooter, w / d crossings, semaphores, stations, houses, bridges ... And all this is set in motion with the remote control.
This toy world, created by the East German brand PIKO (best known Union producer of the children's model w / d) resulted in awe not only children but also their parents. Minimal (basic) set cost about 20 rubles, and the cost of the most clever versions reached 50 rubles (almost half of the average salary!).
Home puzzle in the Soviet Union, which in the early 1980s rattled in his pocket almost any mladsheklassnikov. Easy to master - an hour and a half. During the breaks often held competitions for the assembly and disassembly speed. "Fifteen" had one feature - a week of active use lost one or two chips. After that, the student changed his game function: mainly became a box, which was used as a purse for coins. In the Soviet Union, it was released many varieties of the puzzle, but perhaps one of the most famous - Leningrad tag with the image of the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island. They cost 46 cents.
The game "Well, wait!" ( "IM-02 Electronics")
The main gaming gadget 1980s - Soviet copy of the (unofficial) Nintendo EG-26 Egg. The most famous and popular of the first Soviet series of portable electronic game with LCD screen, produced under the trademark "Electronics".
Wolf to catch in the basket as many eggs, "supplied" chicken on four sides. For each caught egg score a point for each broken egg - a point is subtracted. After earning 200 points, the player receives a bonus game. During the game, from time to time in the upper right corner of the screen it was a hare, and then you can earn bonus points. Long was common myth that when it reaches 1000 points on the screen will play the cartoon "Well, wait a minute!", In fact, sounded three short beeps and the game begins again with 0 points and at high speed.
Made in different versions: in one embodiment briefs have flowered Wolf, and the other - with dots; there is another option, when shorts depict stars and characters instead of the DP and PP face of the clock (the option of drawing the rarest). In addition to the game device has a clock and alarm. Game worth 23 rubles.
The main object of desire of the Soviet schoolboy of the early 1980s. The cult of the puzzle is based on five elements - neon colors, sweet smell of plastic, pleasant creaking at picking and unique "energonomichnom" sense of volume, which occurred in the fingers. But the main was the mantra - build a formula: "left - front-top-right-front" ...
In one of the issues of "Science and Life" on the colored tab placed step by step assembly circuit dice - basic and different patterns. Torn sheets redrawn and carefully passed from hand to hand.
Rubik's Cube still has some unique appeal. Cost cube 6 rubles.
Playing the mid-1980s, which instantly became a cult.
The first version of Tetris was created in Pascal and looked quite primitive. It extended to 5, 25-inch diskettes by copying from friends. Initially spread through Moscow, and then throughout the Soviet Union. But played it, only those who had access to computers.
Mass as it became in the 1990s, when the first Chinese console Brick Game, which included a number of games, including a Tetris. The playing field 10 of rectangular shape 20, a total of 200 pixels. The right of the scoreboard with a digital display running game.
You should have seen with what enthusiasm people caught falling geometric figures and put them in piles so that they disappear. It was a game for all ages ...
By the way, do not remember how much cost "Tetris"? I can not remember
