other thing I did in the Eighties was read the excellent teen
music mag Smash Hits. It had an excellent sense of humour
and many of its writers have went far.
While looking through some old copies of Smash Hits I found some
game adverts for classic Atari VCS cartridges and thought you
may all like to see them too.

1983, Pole Position November 10th 1983, Dig Dug

House, Joust, Mario Bros, Frogger and Masters of the Universe

There are twelve more ads (including ones for Philips Videopac
and Mattel Intellivision games) here.
