Acorn Electron Bundle

Essentially a more affordable, less powerful, and way more compact BBC micro, the Acorn Electron was a lovely, decently priced, and quite successful 8-bit computer that got itself a ton of games and software. You can grab one complete with tape recorder, games, cables, manuals, and more via this Acorn Electron eBay auction.

Darxide (Megadrive 32X)

Released exclusively in Europe in 1995 for the 32X expansion of the PAL Sega Megadrive, Darxide is one of the rarest games available for the system. It also is an enjoyable, rather ambitious, texture mapped 3D shooter by Frontier Developments, and an expensive rarity you can bid on via this Darxide (32X) eBay auction. The game on offer comes on its original cartridge; it is boxed and accompanied by the manual.

PC Engine CD-ROM

The PC Engine CD-ROM, that is the CD-ROM^2 which could only mean the CD-ROM-ROM, sounded magical back in 1988. It would allow an already powerful but consumer-grade console to play games off CDs! It would also prove to be incredibly difficult and expensive to get a hold of in Europe during that time, and that's why I just can't help but appreciate such auctions as this one for a working PC Engine CD-ROM on eBay.

Driller (Commodore 64)

Slow, thoughtful, sci-fi, atmospheric, tense, and impressively both in first person and fully 3D Incentive's Driller was a groundbreaking game that showcased the Freescape engine and let us glimpse into the future. Unexpectedly and despite its slow speed it has aged rather well too. Oh, and you can bid on it via this Driller (C64) eBay auction. It's the tested and working Commodore 64 version of the game, and it comes complete in its box.

The Chaos Engine (Amiga 1200)

Legendary 16-bit coders The Bitmap Brothers released the finest run-and-gun shooter the Amiga had ever seen in 1993. It was none other than the excellent The Chaos Engine, a steampunk shmup set in Victorian times, and involving time travel, quality local co-op, shiny graphics, and near perfect design. It is a true AGA classic, and a game that never aged.

To grab it for your Amiga 1200 you can bid on this The Chaos Engine (Amiga 1200) eBay auction. The game on offer has been tested, and comes in its original box on two 3.5" disks with the manual.

Boxed Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128

It was admittedly slightly under-cooked and a tad late, but we all loved the ZX Spectrum 128. It was a beautiful machine to look at, offered much more RAM than the 48k model, had a pretty decent sound chip, and was meant to be the final Sinclair computer. It is also pretty rare these days, and if you always wanted one you should definitely be looking at this lovely ZX Spectrum 128 eBay auction.

The micro seems to be in good condition (though something might be off with the keyboard), and comes in its original, well-preserved box. The power supply, required cables, and manuals are also included.

20 Games for the Sega CD

I still consider the Sega CD (and Mega CD) an extremely and inexplicably charming machine, that somehow and despite the broken promises managed to almost live up to the promise of an emphatically different next generation of gaming. Obviously Sega's 16-bit add-on didn't set the world on fire, but it did get several great and/or interesting games released for it.

So... You actually can buy 20 of said games via this 20 Sega CD games eBay auction. Each one comes complete in its box, and the collection on offer includes such personal favourites as Dungeon Master II, Rise of the Dragon, Dracula Unleashed, Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective vol.II, NBA Jam, and Jurassic Park.

Fantastic Commodore 64 Bundle

Commodore's record selling 8-bit computer has aged gracefully, and remains an utterly wonderful platform to play, reminiscent, and create on. Also, this amazing Commodore 64 Bundle currently being auctioned on eBay is a great, and most probably cost effective way of revisiting this definitive '80s micro and its software.

The Commodore 64 and monitor on offer work fine, and are accompanied by a printer and an apparently problematic disk drive. Add to those three complete copies of War In Middle Earth, The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, tons of magazines, books, and 50 or so loose disks, and you have the beginnings of a great collection.
