KC Munchkin!

I'm feeling a little retro today. Watching '70s Tech' on 'Modern Marvels' at lunchtime got me looking for YouTube videos about the old Magnavox Odyssey Video Game System we had back in the late 70s-early 80s. All of our friends had Atari systems, so we had no idea what to expect from this system when we unwrapped it on Christmas morning. It didn't take long for me to get hooked on the games and find many ways where I thought it was superior to the Atari.

Some of my favorite games - bowling, football and KC Munchkin. KC Munchkin was similar to PacMan but once you played it, you'd notice several differences. It was released after the PacMan arcade version, but prior to the PacMan video cartridge version. The video here shows what it looked like:

 

Here's another one for their golf game:

 

Go ahead and laugh. This was SO COOL when it came out. I should call my Dad and see if he's come across our old system in the basement. I might want to hook it up!
