2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

2-XL Robot Game Menu

2-XL is a educational toy robot for children made in 1978 that used 8-track tapes to play a sort of audio version of choose your own adventure books and trivia.

A revamped model was made in 1992 that used cassette tapes instead of 8-tracks.

I had one in 1985 when I was about 7. It was probably my favorite toy that year. If you have children have them check it out.

Currently we only have 15 games online. I would like to eventually add all 89. If you have any tapes that we are missing, or want to buy some from ebay, contact me.

List of carts we are missing.

Re: 2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

Say, didn't we have a topic similar to this one? I know it was for a robot that played track-tapes...

Re: 2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

I vaguely remember that thing, we might've had one. I love the interface you have set up. I didn't expect the buttons to actually work, genius.

Re: 2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

I would like to eventually do something similar with laser disk games. This is kind of a practice run at that.

Re: 2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

This really brings back memories. I remember the 8-track version in the beginning of the 80's.

Re: 2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

Updated this today - 2-XL Talking Robot Emulator - added many more cassetts from the 90's Tiger version.

If you have small children, they might like it.

Works in any browser. Requires Flash.

There are a few of these on RU but I'm probably not going to update them here.

Re: 2-XL, the educational talking robot, added to the game menu

I'm sure you have this covered already, but I do own a set of DAPHNE DVDs. I saw earlier in this thread a mention of laserdisc games.

Thanks, but I already have them all. Just requires a lot of time to make so probably wont ever happen.
