Tabletop Arcade Games from Coleco (1982)

A print advertisement from 1982 for tabletop arcade games from Coleco. Designed to emulate the look-and-feel of their standup counterparts, Coleco’s offerings in the early 1980s included Galaxian, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Frogger.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
