Objekt 2: Consoles & Games. Cheats, Patches and further information on game consoles in the digitalcraft exhibition

Computer games and their history is one of digitalcraft´s main focusses. Apart from the large online collection on our website (www.digitalcraft.org), our exhibition displays some historical consoles, all of which can actually be used.


Further information on selected consoles can be obtained via “SMS museum guide”. You can ask for brief descriptions, cheats, emulators, games/ roms and other material on the “Atari 2600”, the “Atari 7800”, “Vectrex” and the “Nintendo Entertainment System” (NES) via SMS. All data will be sent to you by SMS or email. What you need - apart from the telephone number (0178 - 29 97 668) - are the respective codes. Scroll down this page to find them.

This service will be still available after the end of the “SMS museum guide” exhibition project.
