Zimag, a subsidiary of Magnetic Tape International, a maker of video
and cassette tapes, entered the scene in 1983 just as the market
for videogames was crumbling. It was just as well, as Zimag's
pathetic lineup of games probably would have sunk the company anyhow.
Their awful lineup of games consisted of Tanks but No Tanks,
a tank battle game with Pong-like graphics and a heap full of flicker,
I Want My Mommy, a Donkey Kong ripoff with two screens,
Dishaster, a game in which you must prevent plates from
falling off your head, and Cosmic Corridor, a science
fiction shooter that's so easy you can play for hours... if you don't
get bored first (trust us, you will).
Zimag is a perfect example of a clueless enterprise that tried to
cash in on the video game craze and helped sink the industry.
