Ant Attack (Quicksilva)

Sandy White's Ant Attack for the ZX Spectrum was a glorious, technically groundbreaking, evocative, and excellently designed game that pioneered 3D graphics on the machine. What's more, saving the boy or girl from the giant ants remains tense and immensely enjoyable to this day, and the game still comes with some amazing cover art. So, do find out more here, and then do consider bidding on an Ant Attack (ZX Spectrum) tape on eBay.

Amstrad CPC 464 Plus

The Plus range was a very interesting idea both on paper and in the flesh, but Amstrad's turbo-boosted 8-bit systems --despite the cartridge ports, 4096 colors palettes, sprite handling chips, and all sorts of other extras-- could never compete with the reigning Amigas and STs. Still, the Plus machines make lovely retro micros today, and you can grab a finely preserved, cleaned, tested, and fully working one via this Amstrad 464 Plus eBay auction.

New original Sega Genesis

The rare and lovely SAM Coupé

Released in 1989 SAM Coupé was the last 8-bit micro to really attempt to enter British homes, but despite its cool features and ZX Spectrum compatibility it was simply too late. The computer came with impressive specs including a standard 3.5" disk drive, a 6MHz processor, 256K of (expandable) RAM, stereo sound, a palette of 128 colours, and a ton of expansion options. It flopped and is now quite the collectible rarity.

To own one you could do much worse than bid on this rather impressive SAM Coupé bundle on eBay. The computer on offer comes with two disk drives, dust cover, original box, manuals, many disk magazines, the PSU, and a ton of software and games including boxed copies of Manic Miner, Defenders of the Earth, Astroball, and Prince of Persia.

Boxed NES Action Set

The Nintendo Entertainment System never came close to dominating Europe's gaming market, but despite them 8-bit home micros and the Master System it did manage to provide the continent with some excellent Nintendo gaming, and gather a modest but sizable following.

PC Engine CD-ROM

The PC Engine CD-ROM, that is the CD-ROM^2 which could only mean the CD-ROM-ROM, sounded magical back in 1988. It would allow an already powerful but consumer-grade console to play games off CDs! It would also prove to be incredibly difficult and expensive to get a hold of in Europe during that time, and that's why I just can't help but appreciate such auctions as this one for a working PC Engine CD-ROM on eBay.

Boxed Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128

It was admittedly slightly under-cooked and a tad late, but we all loved the ZX Spectrum 128. It was a beautiful machine to look at, offered much more RAM than the 48k model, had a pretty decent sound chip, and was meant to be the final Sinclair computer. It is also pretty rare these days, and if you always wanted one you should definitely be looking at this lovely ZX Spectrum 128 eBay auction.

The micro seems to be in good condition (though something might be off with the keyboard), and comes in its original, well-preserved box. The power supply, required cables, and manuals are also included.

20 Games for the Sega CD

I still consider the Sega CD (and Mega CD) an extremely and inexplicably charming machine, that somehow and despite the broken promises managed to almost live up to the promise of an emphatically different next generation of gaming. Obviously Sega's 16-bit add-on didn't set the world on fire, but it did get several great and/or interesting games released for it.

So... You actually can buy 20 of said games via this 20 Sega CD games eBay auction. Each one comes complete in its box, and the collection on offer includes such personal favourites as Dungeon Master II, Rise of the Dragon, Dracula Unleashed, Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective vol.II, NBA Jam, and Jurassic Park.

Fantastic Commodore 64 Bundle

Commodore's record selling 8-bit computer has aged gracefully, and remains an utterly wonderful platform to play, reminiscent, and create on. Also, this amazing Commodore 64 Bundle currently being auctioned on eBay is a great, and most probably cost effective way of revisiting this definitive '80s micro and its software.

The Commodore 64 and monitor on offer work fine, and are accompanied by a printer and an apparently problematic disk drive. Add to those three complete copies of War In Middle Earth, The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, tons of magazines, books, and 50 or so loose disks, and you have the beginnings of a great collection.

The first Mario game I ever played, Super Mario Land on the Nintendo GameBoy was released in 1989, and developed under the supervision of the legendary Gunpei Yokoi.

Majyuuou (魔獸王) for the Super Famicom
