When I was a kid growing up, I was obsessed with Pac-Man and anything Pac-Man related. I lived, breathed, and dreamed of Pac-Man. Also I was pretty darn good at it… at least for a six year old! We are talking about 1981 here and this was “the” game to play. I suppose there was also Donkey Kong, and my other favourite Galaga that were also in the arcades, but Pac-Man was played by far the most frequently. Anyways while visiting my parents, I came across some old drawings that I did in school and thought I would share them:)
I have to say… not bad (remember I was only six). I don’t know what mark I received for these works of art, but I remember my teacher being really mean and forced me to draw something else…
… so I gave her Galaga. Again, not too bad, though this was all from memory and I didn’t have time to colour it:(
I also found this manual at my parents house. I had this game when it first came out and I absolutely loved it! In fact during one lunch hour I was scoring so high that my mother actually wrote me a note saying that the reason I was late going back to school was because I was heavily invested in this game! Unfortunately I don’t know what ever happened to this game and all I have left is the manual:( Someday though I’ll find another one of these in good shape to put into my collection.
Anyways just a short note this week as I’ve been really busy cutting boxes/covers for the rest of my NES collection. That will likely be what I post next:)
