App description: Do you know NOTs?
In 2013, we revived NOTs as an iPhone app

NOTs was an LED gaming console, which was released in 1972 by the Newsboy Company.
At a time when LED consoles which only ran a single game were the norm, experimenting with a console like NOTs which allowed multiple games to be stored was both novel and innovative.

Unfortunately, for various reasons this platform was never released commercially, and it became referred to as the phantom console, only known of by a select few. However, amid the recent popularity of retro games, there have been a growing number of fans asking for a chance to play NOTs.
It was in this environment that we first took up the challenge of resurrecting the console as an iPhone app.
Were now proud to say that weve successfully brought the game to life, in a form almost identical to the original.


A Varied Lineup of Games
Weve included selected titles from among the original 100.
The first installment includes four games: Rock, Paper Scissors, Snake, Break, and Piano.
We recommend them, both as a fun casual games, and as a nostagic taste of the past.
We are planning to release more games from a number of popular genres in the future: puzzle games, shooting games, action games, etc.
We're certain you'll be able to find a game you enjoy.
It is our fervent hope that you will be able to experience the wonderful world of NOTs and play to your hearts content through this iPhone app.

Looks cute. Clever idea: using an imaginary game machine as the basis for an iOS app. I'll give this one a look.
