Tatung Einstein TC-01
1984 - No generation identified
The Tatung Einstein TC-01 is a home computer that was produced by Tatung Company of Taiwan in the 1980s. It is based on the Z80A microprocessor and has 64 kilobytes of RAM. The computer was shipped with a version of CP/M operating system, which is a popular operating system for small computers at the time. The computer also featured a built-in BASIC interpreter, which allowed users to write and run their own programs. The TC-01 also had a built-in cassette tape drive for data storage, which was a common method of data storage at the time, but now it is obsolete. The computer was not very successful and it was only sold in Taiwan and a few other Asian countries. It was not widely known outside of its region and its production was discontinued after a few years. Some games that were available for CP/M-based computers that may have been compatible with the Tatung Einstein TC-01 include: Zork: A text-based adventure game that was one of the first commercially successful games for personal computers. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Another text-based adventure game based on the popular book and radio series. Star Trek: A text-based simulation game based on the popular TV series. Hunt the Wumpus: A simple text-based game in which the player must navigate a cave and avoid a monster called the Wumpus. Space Invaders: A port of the popular arcade game. It's worth mentioning that these games were developed for other platforms, but they can be ported to Tatung Einstein TC-01 with some modification. Keep in mind that these are just examples and it's not guaranteed that these games were available for Tatung Einstein TC-01 or were able to run on it. Since the Tatung Einstein TC-01 is an obscure computer and it's not widely known, it may be difficult to find games specifically designed for it.
