The Art of Game Manuals

People have donated so many game manuals over the years that we (sadly) end up keeping in storage because we just don't have the games themselves to go with them. It's a pity because there are quite a few in our hidden collection that have amazing game art, full of color and bringing back a sense of game nostalgia that few other sources can inspire. Here are a few examples:

Space Eggs (Atari 800)

Deluxe Invaders (Atari 800/400)

Gorf (Atari 800/400)

Alpha Shield (Atari 800/400)
