Карманные игры «Электроника»

Microprocessor games of the "Electronics" series are a series of Soviet electronic games, mostly united in a single series "Electronics IM" (IM is a microprocessor game). This series includes both pocket and desktop electronic games, mobile robots, musical instruments, etc.

Pocket games of the "Electronics" series with an indicator on liquid crystals - a line of Soviet portable gaming devices with a liquid crystal screen, produced by different manufacturers under the common brand "Electronics" since 1984. Some of the games in this family were copies and variations of the electronic toys Game & Watch series "Wide Screen", released by Nintendo in 1981-1982 (EGG, Octopus, Mickey Mouse, Chef and others).

The games were produced by the factories of Angstrem (Zelenograd), Mikron (Zelenograd), Arzamas Plant of Radio Parts (Arzamas), Bilylur (Ganja), Evistor (Vitebsk), Kamerton (Pinsk), October (Vinnytsia), Proton (Eagle), 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 indices "Angstrem MG-xx" and the inscriptions on the case and packaging in English.

The first portable electronic game with a LCD screen was produced in the 80s under the name "Electronics" which was very popular among children and even adults. A large number of variations on one platform were released. By the way, games from "Electronics" were almost a copy of electronic games from the company Nintendo. I think many remember these games, for example the most popular was "Well, wait!". At the end of the post there is a photo of the original package and instructions. Well, a short video ...
