80's Corner

The Nintendo Entertainment System took the world by storm in the mid-to-late 1980's, and rescued the sagging home video-gaming business. The original NES came with a gun, and a robot named R.O.B. The game that came along with R.O.B. was Gyromite - basically, you had to help a professor move items from one place to another by opening and closing different doors, with the help of R.O.B. - you would basically have R.O.B. lift spinning discs and place them on platforms. It was cool at first, but after a while, I got bored with it. Still, it was a neat idea for Nintendo at the time.

Yeah, "Rob" didn't go too far with the Nes system. What did they make, 2 games that used him ?
