Gaming Ads: Spectrum Holobyte

Founded in 1982, Spectrum Holobyte was originally based in Colorado before merging with Nexa and moving to California in 1987. Spectrum Holobyte only developed and published computer games until the early '90s at which time it began releasing console titles. It acquired MicroProse in 1993 and a few years later was only releasing its products under the MicroProse brand. After Hasbro Interactive purchased the company in 1998 the Spectrum Holobyte name disappeared, and then MicroProse ended in 2001 after Infogrames got involved.

Spectrum Holobyte is best known for publishing the first versions of Tetris in North America. Other well known games from the company include the jet fighter simulation series Falcon, some Tetris spin-offs, and a couple Star Trek: The Next Generation titles.
