Old school retro games

I'm not talking about just any old retro games. I mean those old games that are so primitive but they're great because they were the pioneers of gaming. Here's the list so far-

1975
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Gun Fight - 2 Player only shooter made by Bally Midway

1976
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Colossal Cave Adventure - Might be older than Gun Fight but it was not released to the public until 1977. The early, smaller version was released in 76.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Mazes - Fun if you like mazes
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Tornado Baseball - Made by Midway.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Night Driver Racing game with just the road outline visible.

1977
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Starship 1 - Made by Atari in 1977. Features space ships that intentionally look like the ones in the original Star Trek, pretty cool.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Super Bug - Slow car race game, looks like a tech demo.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Sprint 4
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Sprint 8

1978
Retro Uprising - Arcade - 3-D Bowling
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Ultra Tank - Dueling tank game.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Wolf Pack - Love the "voice" work. Made by Atari.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Sky Raider Cool game that uses a static image that loops by with targets to shoot.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Sky Diver Parachuting game.

1979
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Monza GP - Made by Sega. All the relevant game info was displayed on the cabinet through LEDs, thus none show on our version. Fascinating right?
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Galaxian - A very influential game.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Zork - The Great Underground Empire - Another very influential game
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Speed Freak - Very early racing game.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Atari Baseball Old top down two player baseball game.

1980
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Shark Attack
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Atari Soccer

1982
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Tunnel Hunt - First person space ship shooter that might make you sick. Made by Atari.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - World Tennis - Gamefaqs lists the developer as original game.

Info needed-

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Dottori Kun 1990 by Sega? Looks older than that.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - Minivader 1990 Taito. Same as above.









Post more of these antiques so we can have a list for future reference.

Re: Old school retro games

That is a cool one. It looks easy but it really isn't, at least imo.

I found another one.
Retro Uprising - Arcade - World Tennis
Tennis with scores and it's ugly. Perfect.

---------- Post added at 04:00 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:06 AM ----------

I added two others to the first post and updated the rest as well. As people post these I'll edit them in. Please keep this strictly to the early games and if possible write a quick sentence describing the game.

Re: Old school retro games

These are a few of the games I remember and although not all of them are as primitive as the ones DB posted I hope you'll all enjoy these Arcade classics:

Indian Battle Coin Op - you're a Cowboy fighting hordes of bloodthirsty savage Native North Americans!
They're savages, savages {barely even Human!}
Savages, savages{killers at the core!}

Watch out for buzzard droppings, and surprise attacks from below!
And WB: I'm going to get this high score back from you one day, you'll see.

Kamikaze Coin Op - these invaders aren't just crazy - they've gone Kamikaze!
Hint: shoot them while they're still in their launch tubes, because if they fall ...

Looping Coin Op - a flying shooter with a plane that cannot fly straight, difficult to hit targets, and a nearly impossible to follow maze past the first screen {not to mention the fact this game has a habit of just switching back to the title screen right in the middle of gameplay}, this is truly one of my retro favorites.

M79 Ambush Coin Op - a straightforward yet challenging first person shooter.
Destroy as many enemy vehicles as possible within the time limit, with extra time awarded for high scoring - but don't hit the U.N. vehicle or your gun will be temporarily disabled for several seconds.

New York New York Coin Op - another platform shooter featuring some rather unusual characters ... like the 'UFO' !

Pleiads Coin Op - possibly New York New York's long lost cousin.
Another game with an unusual background that seemed common to games from the late 70's/ early 80's, but this time the invaders can actually blow bits of it up.
I have no idea what the wall building is all about except maybe they're trying to make themselves a shield from your fire?

Radar Scope Coin Op - you guys probably all already know this one - a legendary game.
I always loved the 'owl' sounds the enemy ships make.
Perhaps a bit repetitive but still satisfying.

Rip Cord Coin Op - skydive through a mess of helicopters - that's about it.

Sheriff Coin Op - I used to know this game as Bandito, but still the same fun game.
You're the Sheriff, surrounded by very polite banditos who tip their hats before shooting at you.
'Space Invaders in the round'.

Space Cruiser Coin Op - another platform shooter from the early 80's.
I like the random pattern the enemy ships fly in.

Sprint 8 Coin Op - racing doesn't get much more retro than this.
I remember the cabinet for this one being massive and taking up a lot of space in the Arcade.
{8 steering wheels and gas pedals!}

Starship 1 Coin Op - a primitive first person space shooter where you take command of the Starship Atari {according to the instructions}.
One of the enemy ships looks awfully familiar ... hmmm...

UniWar S Coin Op - a unique platform shooter and one of my childhood favorites.
Watch out for the enemies that get dropped underneath the floor - it's best not to allow them to get down there in the first place.

Wizard of Wor Coin Op - another game I'm sure you're all familiar with.
The only thing it's missing is the Wizard's vocal taunts but the rest of this classic is intact.

Re: Old school retro games

Gun Fight Coin Op Released in 1975. Oldest video game on the site. There are older OTR though. It is a two player only game.

Colossal Cave Adventure Text Adventures Might be older than Gun Fight but it was not released to the public until 1977.

Mazes Coin Op Fun if you like mazes. Released in 1976.

Galaxian Coin Op Released in 1979. A very influential game.

Zork I - The Great Underground Empire Text Adventures Another very influential game released in 1979.

Pac-Man Coin Op Released in 1980. I think Pac-Man is the cut off point between really old retro games and the golden age of retro games.


Ram It Atari 2600 Pretty much everything on the 2600 is going to seem old. Ram It is one of the most simple and basic ones that I think is still fun. You just shot bars. It is fun to see how fast you are.

Speed Attack! Coin Op Released in 1984 but still a very basic game that I like a lot. It is a great if you like testing your finger speed.

Ancient Konami coin op stuff:
Frogger
Scramble - Awkward colors galore
Super Cobra - "Sequel" to Scramble, still with awkward colors

Other things
A2600 Bank Heist - A more action-y Pac-Man clone
Turbo - Super primitive prototype of 3D racing by Sega (who else?)
I, Robot - First game ever to use polygons

Re: Old school retro games

@Kong- I was looking for release dates and I noticed this about Colossal Cave Adventure-
Quote:
When Roberta Williams and her husband Ken discovered the game, and were subsequently unable to find anything similar, they were inspired to create their own software house, founding On-Line Software (later Sierra Online, and then Sierra Entertainment), which created the first graphical adventure game (Mystery House), and quickly became a dominant player in the entertainment software market for the next two decades, creating successful adventures such as King's Quest, Space Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry.
There doesn't seem to be a source but if it's true that's pretty cool.

Btw talk about retro-

Image of ADVENT running on an Osborne II Computer circa 1982

Updating the list to show release dates and a bit of info. Hopefully this list doesn't grow super huge and become annoying.

Re: Old school retro games

^ No joke that is retro.
Any older than that and it would have a paper loop.
I like the dateline you added to your list DB, very informative and good work!

Re: Old school retro games

Thanks but it's not finished and it's honestly a little tedious. But I'm sincerely interested in making a list of the antique innovators of our shared hobby.

If you guys post any more games please check for it's release date, gamefaqs has a ton of that kind of info.

Btw I'm not liking the title, please shout out any better ideas you may have. We should also have a cut off so the list isn't ginormous. Suggestions appreciated.

I didn't realize we were in competition.
That kind of makes me feel responsible to do a better job, not lazy like my list of games on this thread.

How about simply 'Games of the '70's and 80's' as a title?
or perhaps
'True Arcade Classics'
or would you prefer one of my creations like the titles of threads I've started?
If that's what you're after then give me a while and I'll come up with something catchy.

Re: Old school retro games

I wouldn't say we are in competition with them. I only mentioned them because they kept coming up first when I searched for old game release dates. They have a extensive listing of games but their retro sections are usually pretty dead compared to the new stuff.

Btw your list wasn't lazy because it didn't have dates. That only takes a quick search to find out(when possible). You actually put in descriptions to go with the games, that's a bonus. I don't know what to say about the games usually. They're just cool to me because of how primitive they are. Once I streamline the list more I'll add in some of what you wrote.

Arcade Classics might work, simple and clear.

Re: Old school retro games

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Phoenix - (1980) - Very old shooter. Probably the first game I played in my life.

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Amidar - (1981) - Amazing maze-type game.

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Burnin' Rubber - (1982) - Racing game, combat involved and, to stay perfect, your car jumps!

Re: Old school retro games

I just have this thing about really old games like that. It's nostalgia but it's also fascination. I like to think of how awesome they were to the people at the time. That game would be laughed at by the kids who play COD games but without it they probably wouldn't be playing COD at all.

Re: Old school retro games

We could add relevant links link that if you want. Once I get this more organized I was thinking of including a link to Atari and the other old systems. I don't want this to be just about old coin op stuff.

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Atari Baseball This is a really cool one. I looked it up and it was one of those two player top down machines you'd see at bars and stuff. It's so ugly but it's great. Imagine people sitting around this and thinking it's amazing?

Hey!
I was one of those people - and it was more than amazing, early games were totally Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century = Flash Gordon, even!
But hey, I'm so old that my parents tell me about how they would all huddle around this fancy new gadget called a RADIO.

I thought this was incredible when I was a kid:
Star Hawk Coin Op

Did you also think that avatar was incredible when you were a kid? It's so strange and distracting, what's it from?
