The term game can also be expanded to include wild game. Hunters now employ Electronic Game callers to mimic the sounds of wild game to attract them. Therefore due to the wide range of product and the versatility of Electronic Games I refer to them as ‘Electronic Fun Toys’.

Electronic Games started in its infancy as hand held devices. They grew quickly moving into video and personal computers for more complexity as well as interactive games. Today almost all cell phones include many games as well as Apps to perform  a number of additional functions. The industry has really expanded and grown in the last few years. Low cost and ever expanding micro-processors development has enabled that capability. Electronic Games,come with many features, models and varieties.

Amazon and ebay have tens of thousands different games and they can be purchased online.

An Electronic Game is a game that employs electronics  to create an interactive system with which a player can play. The most common form of electronic game today is the video game. Other common forms of electronic game include such non-exclusively-visual products as handheld electronic games, standalone systems (e.g. pinball, slot machines, or electro-mechanical arcade games), and specifically non-visual products (e.g. audio games). There are electronic game sets for chess, draughts and battleships.

Brief History of Electronic Games:

Teletype Games; the earliest form of computer games used was a text-based teletype game. Teletype games lack the display screen an instead presented the game to the player by printing a series of characters on paper which the player reads.

Personal Handheld Electronic Game

Electronic Handheld Games; they are used to play interactive games and are often miniaturized versions of video games. The controls, display and speakers are all part of a single unit, and rather than a general-purpose screen, they usually have custom displays designed to play one game. This simplicity means they can be made as small as a digital watch, which they sometimes are. The visual output of these games can range from a few small light bulbs or LED lights to calculator-like alphanumerical screens. Handhelds were at their most popular from the late 1970s into the early 1990s. These types of games are ideal for kids. They are portable and can be taken anywhere.  The Electronic Toys for Kids are and has been a very large industry.

 

Computer Video Games; A personal computer video game is a video game played on a personal computer, rather than on a video game console or arcade machine. The vast majority of computer games today are video games, and since the earliest days of the medium, visual displays have been used to relay game information.

Pinball machines and similar Games; since the introduction of electro-mechanics to the pinball machine in 1933’s Contact, pinball has become increasingly dependent on electronics as a means to keep score on the back-glass and to provide quick impulses on the playfield (as with bumpers and flippers) for exciting game play. Unlike games with electronic visual displays, pinball has retained a physical display that is viewed on a table through glass. Similar forms of game such as pachinko have also become increasingly dependent on electronics in modern times

Slot machines Games; the slot machine is a casino gambling machine with three or more reels which spin when a button is pushed. Though slot machines were originally operated mechanically by a lever on the side of the machine (the one arm) instead of an electronic button on the front panel as used on today’s models, many modern machines still have a “legacy lever” in addition to the button on the front. Slot machines include a currency detector that validates the coin or money inserted to play. The machine pays off based on patterns of symbols visible on the front of the machine when it stops. Modern computer technology has resulted in many variations on the slot machine concept.

Audio Games; an audio game is a game played on an electronic device such as a personal computer. It is similar to a video game except that the only feedback device is audible rather than visual. Audio games originally started out as ‘blind accessible’-games, but recent interest in audio games has come from sound artists, game accessibility researchers, mobile game developers, and mainstream video gamers. Most audio games run on a computer platform, although there are a few audio games for handhelds and video game consoles. Audio games feature the same variety of games as video games, such as adventure games, racing games, etc.

Video Games; A video game is a game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to the display device.

Personal Computer Electronic Games

I refer to Electronic Games as Electronic Fun Toys because a majority of them are designed to entertain the user. The capability of a micro-processor has contributed to a very wide range of products.   Electronic Games for entertainment range from simple hand held game to ones that run on a personal computer. The personal computer games can get more complex and go from simple game to brain training games. Click on eBay’s category of Electronic Brain Games.

Game Call is a device that is used to mimic animal noises to attract or drive animals to a hunter.

Hunters can be divided into two categories. The first group sits silent, motionless and hidden until a game animal wonders or flies into view. This tried-and-true hunting method takes plenty of game, but some people prefer to a more ‘active’ approach. This group of hunters also remains hidden, but they make plenty or noise. They are wildlife game callers and their success depends on producing a convincing enough reproduction of an animal’s calls to convince a game animal to come to them.

One can’t simply buy a call, head to the woods and reap the reward of game flooding to your call. Just like any activity, becoming a competent game caller takes practice and education. Some popular game call are for Deer, Turkey, Ducts, Geese, Moose, Elk, Raccoons, Wild Pigs, Coyote, and Crows. Each call demands the appropriate calling technique and the only way to become competent is to learn what the call should sound like, how much to call, where to call, when to call and the list could go on and on.

 

 

Electronic Games for Cell Phones / Smart Phones

Electronic games for cell phones are expanding rapidly. Apps for cell phones are a whole new area for electronic gaming. Apps can the downloaded loaded on the cell phone and played at anytime. The term “app” is a shortening of the term “application software”. It has become very popular and in 2010 was listed as “Word of the Year” by the American Dialect Society.

An App is a computer program designed to run on a smart-phones, table computers, and other mobile device. Apps are usually available through application distribution platforms, which began appearing in 2008 and are typically operated by the owner of the mobile operating system, such as the Apple App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone Store, and BlackBerry App World. Some apps are free, while others must be bought. There are literally thousands of Free Games and apps for smart cell phones. Apps such  as Find My Phone and Locate my Phone have been getting  extremely popular. Click on Apple store it is a good source of Apps for iTune and products for the Apple. Click on Samsung online for Samsung products. Click on Nokia for their products, and  LG web site for LG products)

Mobile apps were originally offered for general productivity and information retrieval, including email, calendar, contacts, and stock market and weather information. However, public demand and the availability of developer tools drove rapid expansion into other categories, such as mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, banking, order-tracking, ticket purchases, Find My Phone / Locate my Phone  and recently medical apps. The explosion in number and variety of apps made discovery a challenge, which in turn led to the creation of a wide range of review, recommendation, and other sources, including blogs, magazines, and dedicated online app-discovery services.

The popularity of mobile apps has continued to rise, as their usage has become increasingly prevalent across mobile phone users. A May 2012 comScore study reported that during the previous quarter, more mobile subscribers used apps than browsed the web on their devices. Researchers found that usage of mobile apps strongly correlates with user context and depends on user’s location and time of the day.

I would recommend that one should investigate an Apps side effects before downloading it because they can interfere with the operation of the phone and have functions that may not be desired. Apps may use many of the features built into the phone.
