Manchester Comiccon Weekend

I got back to my house at 7pm last Sunday, slumped onto the couch and said, “Well, that was a weekend and a half!” I was exhausted. We had spent two days at Manchester Comiccon which, by far, had been the best weekend we had experienced in a good few years. Over the weekend I […]

Comic Con Manchester

For The Love Of The 80’s & 90’s is coming to Manchester! I am so excited! I’m literally the giddiest of all the kippers! Comic Con Manchester is just a few weeks away, and I CANNOT WAIT! The world’s biggest celebrity guests includes first time UK signer Steve Guttenberg from Police Academy, Cocoon and Three […]

Wales Comiccon 2019

Wales Comiccon first launched in 2008 and has remained one of the main places I go to to meet what I class as 80s legends. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Comiccons, they are a complex thing to try to explain – They are an event where people can dress up like their […]

Mysterious Cities Of Gold

It is the 16th century. From all over Europe great ships sale west to conquer the new world, the Americas. These men eager to seek their fortune, to find new adventures in new lands. They long to cross uncharted seas and discover unknown countries. To find secret gold on a mountain trail high in the […]

Speak and Spell

What an amazing piece of 80s electronic gadgetry this was! A bright orange TALKING computer game, with loads of buttons and LOADS of spelling games! I loved my Speak and Spell! It was created by Texas Instruments and was probably the most popular toy of 1978. It practically ate batteries, using 4 at a time, […]

The Trap Door

Somewhere in the dark and nasty regions where nobody goes, stands an ancient castle. Deep within this dank and uninviting place lives Berk, overworked servant of the thing upstairs. But that’s nothing compared to the horrors that lurk beneath The Trapdoor. For there is always something down there, in the dark, waiting to come out. […]

Cue Ball

Alex Higgins Cue Ball, or Bank Shot as it was also called, is an L.E.D. pool game made by Palitoy. The idea of pool, as I’m sure you know if you’ve ever played pool or snooker, is to hit the white ball with your cue, making it collide with the different coloured balls in the […]

The Adventure Game

Gronda, Gronda! Come say hello to Uncle, the vibrating aspidistra! The Adventure Game was a gameshow set on a distant planet, called Arg, in which celebrities had to solve puzzles in order to get back home. They also had to speak to a teapot, (or an aspidistra, depending on what Uncle had transformed in to […]

We Have A Podcast!

To celebrate our 20th birthday, 80sNostalgia is launching a podcast! Yes – 80sNos will have been online for 20 years as of June 2019, so we thought we would celebrate by talking at you relentlessly. This is the main reason we have been quiet over the last few months. We started production in October last […]

Demon Driver

Demon Driver was a revolutionary game in two ways. Firstly, the road on which your car would drive was an endless inner workings used to revolve. See what I did there? Revolve? “Revolution”-ary? No? *sigh* Secondly, and more importantly, it gave you the feeling of being a “proper” driver. There was a steering wheel that […]
