Blip - 70s digital game

"Blip - The Digital Game" was a popular game back in the 70s. To sum it up, it was kind of like a portable version of Atari pong.

Here's the commercial for Blip, just to fire up that nostalgia:

Basically, there were three buttons on each side that were numbered 1, 2 and 3. To send the ball/pong back, you had to press the correct one.

Blip was developed by TOMY and released back in 1977. It worked via an LED light that was bounced back and forth. It required two AA batteries and a nob that had to be turned in order to start the game. You'll also probably remember the mechanical BZZZZ sound that it used to make while you were playing it!
