Nostalgia. Pocket Microprocessor Games Series "Electronics"
Microprocessor games of the “Electronics” series are a series of Soviet electronic games, mainly united into a single series “Electronics IM” (IM is a microprocessor game). This series includes both pocket and board electronic games, mobile robots, musical instruments, etc.
Pocket games of the series "Electronics" with an indicator on liquid crystals - a line of Soviet portable gaming devices with an LCD screen, produced by different manufacturers under the general trademark "Electronics" since 1984. Some of the games in this family were copies and variations of the Game & Watch electronic toys of the Wide Screen series, released by Nintendo in 1981-1982 (EGG, Octopus, Mickey Mouse, Chef, and others).
The games were produced by Angstrom (Zelenograd), Mikron (Zelenograd), Arzamas Radio Components Plant (Arzamas), Billur (Ganja), Evistor (Vitebsk), Kamerton (Pinsk), and October (Vinnitsa), Proton (Orel), Severodonetsk Instrument Making Plant (Severodonetsk), Voskhod (Kaluga), Ellar (Riga) and some others. Some games were also produced by the Angstrem factory in the export version, with the Angstrem MG-xx indexes and inscriptions on the case and packaging in English.
The first portable electronic game with LCD screen produced in the 80s under the name "Electronics", which was very popular among children and even adults. It was released a large number of variations on one platform. By the way, the games from "Electronics" were almost a copy of electronic games from the Nintendo company. I think many people remember these games, for example, the most popular was “Well, wait!”. At the end of the post there is a photo of the original packaging and instructions. Well, a short video ...
