Nintendo Journal 8

TopGun LCD game

I also picked up an old LCD games. TopGun by Konami. It's just a single board game with LCD screen. There's a small speaker on the back. It's amazing how simple these things are. I think games like these are perfect for Petit Computer projects. I will be rustling up a few.

I marvelled at how thin the LCD screen is. It's just a thin plastic, nothing more. I looked at the contacts, and they're sooo tiny! I really doubt that they can align it perfectly, and yet, when I reassembled the device, it works fine!

I don't know how they do it. As simple as it is, that's not something any rookie can do. There must have been some degree of experimentation in order to fit things just right.
