GENIUS (SIMON), 1980

One of the first computerized portable games, SIMON was surely the first to take full advantage of a postmodern Polypropilene plastic design. Released in 1978 in USA and in 1980 in Brazil with the name GENIUS, it was a hit due to its inovative design, a big marketing campaign and the novelty of computer games. Design by Howard J. Morrison e Ralph Baer, programming by Lenny Cope. Produced in USA by Milton Bradley Electronics and by Estrela SA in Brazil.
