1983 Jungle Adventure / Woodman Hand-Held Game

1983 Jungle Adventure / Woodman Hand-Held Game

Posted to Flickr on 04 June 2009. Part of the JD's House of Miscellany series.

At Christmas in 1983 I received this quirky hand-held video game. Part of the "Play & Time" series from the company Masudaya, the unit features two games, Jungle Adventure and Woodman, as well as an alarm clock and stopwatch. Inexplicably, it plays the song Yesterday when you turn in on. The interface is old school: a black-and-white LCD display and nice soft rubber buttons to mash. It still works quite well; you can spend as many hours as you like getting eaten by LCD aligators.

This is one of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.
