Take a trip down memory lane with some of the best orb games around. From old school consoles, to ones equipped with the latest technology, you can truly relive the best moments of your 90s nostalgia.
Nothing Beats the Classics
The year 1909 marked the release of the very first Skee Ball game. Whilst they were originally 36 feet long, by 1928, they were reduced in size so that more people can play.
By 1931, we were introduced to the first coin-operated machine. Baffle Ball paved the way for the iconic pinball machines. Since at the time gambling wasn’t legal in all States, by 1947, flippers were added to the pinball machines so that people would focus more on the skill and robotics of the game.
During the early 70s, we were then introduced to Galaxy Game (1971) – the very first coin-operated video game. Soon after, Pong (1972) started making waves and became the first commercially successful video game.
While more games have been designed throughout the years, today’s games are a far cry from Golden Age classics such as Space Invaders (1987), Asteroids (1979), Pac-Man (1980) and of course the Super Mario series (1985).
