LED Football Hikes It Over To iPhone
We've written about the fabulous handheld LED games of the late 70's before. I still have an electronic soccer game that I got as a promotional gift for opening a bank account when I was seven years old - an account I still use (a fact that I remind my bank of whenever they give me crappy service)!
It's not just me who remembers those handhelds fondly. Before the concept of a portable cartridge gaming system came along, these LED games were the way to take your favorites with you. Retro-minded toymakers cashed in on the nostalgia of these games in recent years, but brought them back as LCD games - so you couldn't play in the dark anymore.
Enter LED Football for iPhone. It's coming soon, it's 99 cents, and you can play it in the murky back seat of your dad's Buick. Whew - 99 cents. That's even less than the original 70's handhelds cost at the flea market!
