After a break in videos (you’ll see why in the next upload), I’m making my mildly triumphant return by presenting to you, the viewer, the Tomy Caveman. Found gracing the shelves in 1983, this portable electronic game has you playing as a simple caveman as he tries to steal a dinosaurs eggs. There are a few obstacles, however, since the dino breaths fire. Additionally, fatal molten rock will spill from a volcano while pterodactyls swoop. It’s about as much fun as you can possibly have on a vacuum fluorescent display.

Growing up while the fifth generation of consoles reigned supreme meant that Brendan missed out on much of the 80’s and early 90’s of gaming the first time around. He either lacked the cognitive ability to play them, as naturally, he was a baby - or he simply didn’t exist yet. Undeterred, Brendan started a blog called Retro Game On in 2011. This followed his exploits as he collected and played everything he could get his hands on no matter what the release date. While RGO is mainly YouTube focused these days concentrating on video reviews and historical features, the itch to do some old fashion writing never went away. More recently, Brendan has been a staff writer for the gaming website, GameCloud, mostly focusing on the indie gaming scene in his locale of Perth, Australia.
