What's your favorite retro game, ladies?

The original game design of Centipede was constructed largely in part by one of the only females in the industry at the time. The game was intended to attract women with its pastel colors and lack of male bias such as fighting or sports games. Centipede went on to become one of the most popular coin-operated games to have a significant female player base. Ladies, what are some of your favorite games to play?

Julia Hawkins has thoroughly demonstrated that older runners had healthier brains and bodies. I've read about it here https://www.seniorfitness.net/. She has previously created history, but this newest achievement establishes a new 100m record for the centenarian known as "Hurricane Hawkins." It's worth noting that she crossed the finish line in 39:62 in 2017 in Birmingham, becoming the fastest female competitor in the 100-105 age group.

Hawkins had previously won many gold medals as a cyclist in four annual National Senior Games before beginning to run in 2017 at the age of 101.

I liked Oregon Trail.  Also, A game that started with a "Q" (Qbert?)- had a serious of pads in the shape of a pyramid and had to avoid the bad dudes.  Logan's Run

Our first game system was Mattel's Intellevision - l loved Reversi and Space Invaders.  We had a bonus game purchased with Kool Aid package points.  It was a maze thru a haunted house with ghosts and neat special effects.  At the end Kool Aid man crashed thru the walls.  My kids and I loved it.  Also Burger Time.
