Museum Pieces

I found these artifacts while cleaning out my apartment:

  • An old "handheld" Space Invader-esque video game called "Cosmic Combat"
  • Extended BASIC for the TI 99/4A computer
  • A "Parsec" game cartridge, also for the TI.
Museum Pieces

The BASIC cartridge retailed for $94.00 all those years ago, and I remember spending hours designing graphical "sprites" that I then programmed to float around my low-res portable color TV.

I can't remember if I threw out the old machine or not. I suspect not, as I would have no reason to keep this junk unless the TI was either hidden somewhere around here or in my parent's pad back in Salt Lake City.
