Mr Monkey sees Videogame Nation at Urbis, 11th June

"It's a great reminder of how awful games used to be, you know"

Mr Monkey looking at some very early videogames Mr Monkey watching Monty the Mole in action

Mr Monkey looked at some video games from the days when the Sinclair Spectrum was king*, and chuckled as his humans completely failed to get across the first screen of Monty on the Run. It was just like being back in the 80's, except for the quality of the screen, and using modern game controllers instead of a cheap keyboard, and not having to load the game from a cassette recorder.

You can see the correct way to play Monty on the Run at YouTube (in three parts).

* Except in Mr Rik's house, where the only computer was a BBC Model B.
