The Original Cell Phone Games You Forgot You Used To Love

- Page 1

There was nothing as important as getting your first cell phone. That's how you knew you were finally grown up. Now, kids get cell phones when they are still just little, but when we were younger, our parents made us wait until we were "responsible enough" to handle it.

Having a phone was pretty much the best. You could talk to your friends without worrying about your parents listening in. You also could take your phone on the go so you could pretend like you were important enough to need to be reached whenever.

The absolute best part of most cell phones was the games. Turning on your old Nokia and clicking to that games menu was the greatest.

What were the best games we played back in the day?


On the Hagenuk MT-2000 the first cellphone game appeared and it was great. It was a version of Tetris that could be played on this beautiful cellphone.

Space Impact

When you were looking for something a little more dangerous you know you could play some Space Impact. Kind of like Astroids but for those who are far too busy to go to the arcade.

Brick Breaker

Not a lot of kids or teens needed Blackberrys, but if our parents had one or we were lucky enough to get one our whole lives were consumed by Brick Breaker.

87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the


'The Oregon Trail' Is Back And More Portable Than Ever, And We Can't Wait To Die Of Dysentery

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of


There's Going To Be A 'Ghostbusters' Version Of Pokemon Go And We Know Who We're Gonna Call

Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn't going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did? We weren't about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff. Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood


It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
