The Games We Played – Speak & Spell

The Games We Played – Speak & Spell

Speak & Spell (Image courtesy Handheld Remakes: The Archive) By Andrew Liszewski

Sorry for skipping last week’s The Games We Played. I’m afraid circumstances beyond my control meant I was on the road and didn’t have a chance to dip into my big box o’classic gaming, but next week things will be back to normal (or better!), I promise.

In the meantime, why not spend some quality time at work with this perfect flash recreation of Texas Instrument’s Speak & Spell? I’ve linked to it before, but it’s one of those flash games that you can actually justify playing while ‘on the clock’ since it’s technically improving your spelling. What boss would complain about that? When I was younger I was always suspicious of these ‘educational games’ that tried to pretend they were fun, but I had a soft spot for Speak & Spell’s cold synthesized voice. Not sure why. But since it pre-dated both my Commodore 64 and the Tiger Electronics handheld era, it pretty much had a monopoly on my attention.
