It is November 1983 and young Billy Twist and his friends are about to discover the exciting new world of microcomputers and video games.

Take a trip into the 80s world of micros, 80s pop culture, and classic video games in a story for 8-bit micro fans and geeks.

Billy and friends start their journey, but run into some obstacles as they try to setup a computer gaming club, deal with Bullies, experience new computers and try to make some money to buy even more games!

Billy is a typical kid growing up in the 80s – the age of the microcomputer. An age of wonder for teens and adults alike.
A nostalgic story of ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad, BBC, and Atari micros.
If I didn’t grow up in the 80s I would be jealous of everyone that did – because the 80s rocked!

A time when Arcades were a right-of-passage, and gaming was a social experience enjoyed with your friends. A time before Minecraft or Fortnite, a time of discovery.

A book for video game fans and geeks – a snapshot into 80s video game history in UK and beyond.
