In 1983 the world was about to go 3D driving at the wheel with Thundering Turbo and it's awesome speed and sound!

The 1980s were Tomy's glory years and Tomytronic brought out a series of 3D videogames that went with you everywhere.  

Tomy were renowned for making toys since the 1920's (formed in 1924) from the original days of simple childrens toys to mechanical and clockwork toys of the 60s and 70s (including the wonderful pocketeers.  But the 1980s were Tomy's glory years and brought out a series of 3D videogames that went with you everywhere.  

With Thundering Turbo with its sleek white colour and aerodynamic design - it felt everything like the sports car you ever wanted to own. From the 3-2-1 countdown at the beginning you accelerated off round the bending track. Light flowed in the unit from the top to give the LCD design of the cars and track the brightess effects possible.  This was all about keeping your wits about you and the slightest wrong movement as you waited to avoid the cars ahead and accelerate.  

As a retro handheld game this still stands up thirty odd years later.
