ABOUT THIS COMPUTERSPACE (#10495)
I bought this game about ten years ago from John Jukes in Vancouver Canada.
It was an HUO (home use only) game and at the time it had only 227 games on the playmeter(!)
The game is completely original and in the best possible condition. It looks amazing.
It has it’s original black and white TV by General Electric, original boards, original control pannel, everything original nice and shiny like it came out of the Nutting Associates factory yesterday.
This computer space is fully operational and plays on US quarters. (I will include a handful of these with the game). You won’t find a nicer Computerspace anywhere. This is a museum piece.
If you are a serious arcade- or computer game collector, this machine is a must have and it will become the center piece of your collection. This is the game that started it all. (Yes, before PONG :-).
Computer Space is a space combat arcade game developed in 1971 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney in partnership as Syzygy Engineering, it was the first arcade video game as well as the first commercially available video game. Computer Space's release marked the beginning of the commercial video game industry.
In Computer Space, the player controls a rocket as it attempts to shoot a pair of flying saucers while avoiding enemy fire. The monochrome game has the three ships flying on a two-dimensional plane, set against the backdrop of a starfield. Missiles are fired one at a time
According to Bushnell they ended up selling between 1,300 and 1,500 units.
By May 1972, Bushnell quit Nutting Associates and moved to incorporate Atari.
They game is located in Alkmaar in the Netherlands. Buyer is responsible for pick up.
I will include a copy of the instructions and schematic.
The game runs on 110 volts, a transformer will be included.
I played a couple of games on it. The play meter is now on 255 games(!).
