Oooh ... what a cool theme for us retro gamers ... sweet memories ... and such nice trophies. (http://s7.directupload.net/images/user/111226/7ud2ixu5.gif)

After the success of Dubreq's Stylophone, creator Brian Jarvis got to work on what would be his only foray into the world of personal computing. Boasting a 6.5" plasma display, 58 key stylus operated keyboard, single-button cursor, stylish chrome faced chassis, and internal speaker—the Stylocom stood apart from the personal computers of 1975. It's most impressive feature was a self-contained record lathe that could record user compositions onto 2.5" vinyl discs.

x1 x2 x4 x8

Unfortunately, due to it's limited functionality beyond eight bar compositions, misophonic tonal quality, and tendency to crash when looping back to the start of a piece, the Stylocom was recalled hours before it's release. Nothing is known of what became of the thousands of un-shipped units but computer historians still believe at least a dozen or so managed to leave store shelves and may still be out there...

e: wowza I didn't understand the challenge at all! :D

Wooohooo! - I am in, too! :grin:

Retro is hard to do for me since I would like to put sooo much more into the shape. :undecided:
I found no space for the rubber-chicken with the pulley and a tentacle and the evil meteor and, and, and ... :~(
... lots of golden memories to drown in  ... :cool:

Here's what I squeezed into the shape

x1 x2 x4 x8

Yes, Maniac Mansion is one of my essential memories about why I became addicted to p&c adventure games,
because I'll never forget how I tried to put the hamster in the microwave and got the answer:
"That's sick!" (In the original version, this action has been denied .) (laugh)

I suppose my resolutions this year should be:
1.) Enter more Coloring Balls
2.) Procrastinate less.

So far, I'm about 50/50.

Thanks for this contest, AnasAbdin; the topic is dear to my heart. This entry is dedicated to my ol' Macintosh LC. It's the computer on which I first played Monkey Island, King's Quest V, and a slew of other games. I drew a lot of goofy pictures in Superpaint 2.0, wrote school papers, and it might be partly responsible for my love of computer games and interest in computer science. Here's to good old times, friends.
