  • I have the racing game its called action racer in the u.k , mine has a star shaped red light when I crash which is about a inch in size. possibly your explosion light is faulty as in the same way my cars are not as white. made by the same company alps toys the label you have is possibly the retailer not the manufacturer but I am not sure myself. Thanks for adding this video this formula one game is impossible to find. BUT mine is for sale if anyone wants me to list it on ebay for them. ? mine is superb condition for the age and works perfectly.

  • I so miss my Digital Derby. Sadly it broke to where if you hit another car, the crash effect wouldn't happen. Then again I could say it got the first ever God mode.

  • I've been looking for several years on what that tricky traps game was after seeing it on YouTube as a little kid, thanks to you I finally know what it is now 🙂

  • Great video! I have a small collection of these (about 30 different ones) and I still don't have Tricky Traps… I love these games and they make fun display pieces on your coffee table for friends!

  • BTW Du bist knapp vor viertel Zehntausend Abonnenten. Gibt es wieder einen Bewerb? Ich wollte schon immer einen halben Helikopter 🙂 .

  • Formel 1 gab es bei der Quelle (wie im Video zu sehen) und bei der Stafa. Fantastisch der Seitenhieb auf die in ihrer Geldgier jegliche Nachhaltigkeit vergessende aktuelle Spieleindustrie 🙂 . Wenn sich die Dinge in der Spieleindustrie im selben Tempo verschlechtern, dauert es sicher nicht mehr lange bis wir die Dinger auch nicht mehr selber ausschalten dürfen. Da gibt es dann Retrovideos in 30 Jahren über das tolle, noch ausschaltbare iPad.

  • Servus Vectrex Roli und The Mysic Mrs. Vectrex. Ich finde eure videos sehr lustig, amüsannt gemacht, unterhaltend und dazu noch die hammer coolen Game Teile. Bitte weiter machen.
    Ich bin auch ein leidenschaftlicher sammler von Electronik und mechanischen Games aus den 80s und späten 70s. Natürlich habe ich auch ein Vectrex original Pong atari u.s.w. auch viele VFD games, ganze colleco serie und viele andere raritäten. Finde es toll was Du so alles hast, versuche mir ein überblick zu verschaffen mit deinen Videos.  Unglaublich. Bewundernde Grüsse aus der Schweiz

  • Some wonderful pieces of history there Roli!
    This made me think of a video I saw a few years ago where somebody had made an electromechanical version of the game Lunar Lander. If you do a YouTube search on "Lunar Lander – video game made real" I think you'll find it interesting! (it's not quite the same thing because they used a lot of electronics in it)

  • Great to see these again, thanks! I remember being envious of other kids who had them – practically computer games! Shortly before that we had Pocketeers, which were similar low-cost mechanical contraptions which usually emulated a similar sort of game play that you might expect to see in amusement arcades at the time. I had a bunch of Pocketeers. Someone's uploaded a clip of a few of them https://youtu.be/S1A5I9dsIS8

  • Hahaha. Good kick in the face of Apple. Replace a battery…awesome. This reminds me of the day I made my own racing game with toilet rolls, paper, tin foil, a battery and a bell. We worked on it for a day and it was actually playable. I never understood why my friend at the time destroyed it at the end of the day…

  • Oh wow! I had Blip and Digital Derby when I was a kid and had completely forgotten about them until now! Thank you very much for this nice reminder of some of the games I loved playing as a child. I may have to hunt down a another Blip game on eBay at some point. =)

  • Cooles Video, was anderes bin ich von dir ja nicht gewohnt. Das "Tricky Traps" wollte ich schon als Kind immer haben, da es rein optisch sehr ansprechend war/ist. Es fehlt mir auf jeden Fall noch in meiner Sammlung, zusammen mit wahrscheinlich hundert anderen Sachen. 😉

  • great video – never heard of any of the 3, neither in the 70s nor later. So seems you are turning into some sort of educational channel (or archaeological …. not sure). Keep up the good work.

  • I remember seeing Blip way back in the late 70s as a child in some toy store at xmas, and my mind could not comprehend just how futuristic it was for a gaming, lol

  • Hey! I had something very much like that racing one!

  • I remember Blip and the driving game. Tricky traps looks beautiful Wow. I would have remembered that one.

  • Awesome video as always Roli! Very intriguing that Formel 1 can run on a couple of AA's whereas Digital Derby needs C batteries. And now I'm very tempted to pick up Tricky Traps.    🙂
    Also, thank you very much for the shoutout, that's super nice of you!

  • I had one or two of these.  Thanks for the walk down memory lane, Roli.

  • Very neat games! I can't remember seeing any of these here back in the day.

  • Nice vid.  I still have my boxed Aaaagh! from 1988 so they must've been made before that.  I also had a Tomy Racing Turbo but I've no idea where that is now.
