No, this game is just too exciting for me...

Following on from news that the Commodore 65 will soon hit the shops, Binatone has announced a new game.

Binatone Squash will bring back memories of Binatone Tennis for people who loved slow games back in the 1970's. The game for two fingers and a moving dot was a big hit for people in the decade of Vietnam and Thatcher, but lost its popularity to Spirograph and Pac-man in the 1980's.

Dr Arnold Idea from Binatone said: 'This will be a great game for all those kids who want something fun to play. Imagine all the fun of Binatone Tennis, but none of the novelty. We imagine the game will be flying of the shelves by May'.

Pre-orders on Amazon were had from Mr A Idea, and Mr 70's.
