There's something magical about primitive 'Game and Watch' style games. I was obsessed with them as a youngster. So Game Of Watchcraft — an iOS game that replicates and parodies those products — appeals to me massively. Moving clumsily from on animation to the next, working out timings, all that stuff. Give it to me. I want it.
When I was younger I played those old Tomytronic games. Watching this trailer inspired a real search for pictures of those games and the devices you used to play them. After asking some folks on Twitter I re-discovered the names of the games and was delving through screenshots, Wikipedia entries — the works.
I saw a picture of the Tomytronic. I looked at the buttons I use to constantly push and it felt like I could physically remember touching them. It hurt my heart. I felt a legitimate, physical pain in my gut. Crazy.
Anyway, the point is: that's the power of nostalgia. Everyone has their own story I guess, and this game and watch parody helped me relive mine. That was fun.
