Saturday Supercade

1980's Cartoon television show

Saturday Supercade was an animated cartoon television show that aired on CBS from September 17, 1983 to December 1, 1984. Created by Ruby-Spears Enterprises, the show was based on popular arcade games of the time. Each episode was one hour long and comprised of several short segments centered around characters from the Golden Age of video arcade games.

The first season of the show consisted of segments based on five video games, Frogger, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Pitfall! and Q*bert. During the first season the Pitfall! and Q*bert segments rotated weekly while the other three segments were included in every episode. During the second season Q*bert became a weekly segment, Donkey Kong continued as a weekly segment and the Frogger, Donkey Kong Jr. and Pitfall! segments were replaced with Space Ace and Kangaroo segments.

Worms

Unique turn-based strategy game

Worms is a turn-based strategy game developed by Team17 Software Limited and published by Ocean Software for the PC.  The game is a 2D artillery game where players control a team of worms in a military battle against other teams of worms.  The game is broken into rounds where players can use various weapons to kill the other team of worms and win the round.
