From Computer Space to Retro Space to Computer Space Meeting'...
30th of December 08' ...
It starts with the original Computer Space flyer from 1971...
As an homage to the video arcade era, and especially to honor the design of the first ever arcade cabinet, Martijn created "Retro Space
...and as a huge fan of Computer Space, Marijn and his friend Lara (pictured on the Retro Space flyer) decided to come from Netherlands to Belgium in order to see, smell & play a real Computer Space
But before the 'Computer Space experience', let's invite them into the Nuno's Lair *reloaded* version
Everybody loves Donkey Kong :
One of the Lara's favorite games is ...Mappy. Hopefully, my Xevious cab is equipped with the Namco Classic Collection Volume 1

Martijn is trying the original Star Wars from 1983...
...before trying the 1998 version of the game
Drink, food, and Space Invaders part II.. welcome to the 'cocktail' playing

OK, back in the living room, where the Computer Space is... before plugging the game, I pray the god of Arcade : "please keep that Computer Alive my Lord..."
Power on... It's still alive... OK Martijn, have fun
Yes, it's a little bit noisy
Because Lara (the model for the Retro Space flyer) is here, impossible to skip this picture
