I really like this photo because I've somehow managed to capture this building to represent a childhood game that I really love.

Anyone remember the classic 8-bit game, Frostbite? :D You had to jump from panels of ice to the other, dodge some bird of prey, fish, and the occasional polar bear standing in your way from getting to the igloo.

I used to play it constantly when I was a little kid (I became a total gamer when I was 3 because of my mom )

Unfortunately, I can't remember what gaming system I used to play it on. The game had a bunch of mini games on it like Pitfall and...and...and that's all I can remember. It's been 17 years since I've played it ok LOL

I'm sure there is someone out there who knows what I'm talking about :B

Edit: Thank you thank you thank you so much arctoa for the suggestion!!!! And of course, happy birthday in return! ;)

It feels so liberating earning my 4th Daily Deviation. Thank you :love:

UPDATE FROM THE COMMENTSAh now I remember! (After a few knocks on the head and over-exertion of heavy thinking) It actually is an Atari game. Frostbite came with an anthology of 30 Atari games in one called Activision Classics for the Playstation console instead. Here's a link to refresh our memories xD atariage.com/forums/topic/2144…

it might have been Atari - but i dont remember the game myself, supposed i rarely had such a model to my hands.

There are a bunch of screenshots - indeed you are close to them.

Ah now I remember! (After a few knocks on the head and over-exertion of heavy thinking) It actually is an Atari game. Frostbite came with an anthology of 30 Atari games in one called Activision Classics for the Playstation console instead. I've actually never held an Atari before :'D

P.s. Thank you!

How and why did your mom make  you into a gamer at 3?  I'm not judging, I'm a gamer too.

The earliest I can remember was watching my mom play Super Mario Bros. 3 on the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game & Watch on the Gameboy. And then she let me play to try to beat her high scores (which I did) and the rest was history lol.
