I've not really played many games sice I had my ZX Spectrum back in about 1984. On that I loved Manic Miner and Daley Thompsons Decathlon.
"jetpac - 48k speccy ****" - oh yeah I liked that one too!
The only game i've played recently was Age of Empires which got rather addictive.
3 in Three--it was a Mac only game that involved lots of different puzles to solve, including logic and arcade-type puzzles.
I wish I could find a version of it still....
All Spectrum related, naturally...
...the forgotten joys of waiting fifteen minutes for a game to load eh?
drifts into a cloudy haze of memories
All for the online multiplayer ability....
Knighty - Flashback on the Megadrive. Wow, I almost forgot about that!
A classic if ever there was one (like the level where you enter the gameshow of death so that you can return home to Earth ;))
My vote goes to any of the doom/quake family. Playing way too much Quake 3 recently ;)
>>...the forgotten joys of waiting fifteen minutes for a game to load eh?
And those weird flashing stripes and screaming noises...

And having to play with the tone and volume controls.
Jet Set Willy and Jet Pac are my old rubber key spectrum favourites.
Ultimate Games RIP...
All this speccy talk reminded me an old not very good joke:
What do you get when you cross Jet Set Willy with Way of the Exploding Fist?
Can anyone guess the answer?
|And those weird flashing stripes and screaming noises |
The level of tone & volume precision required to get a Speccy game to load was beyond belief - how we managed to get it right as kids defies belief!
Daley Thompson's Decathlon on a rubber-keyed 48k anyone?!?...
Does anyone remember 'Elite' - God, I used to love that game - wish it would get re-made.
|Daley Thompson's Decathlon on a rubber-keyed 48k anyone?!?... |
cor that one gave me blisters! :)
especially the 100m sprint
tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, ....
Deus Ex - The sun never shines in this noir tale.
Hitman 2 - Visit exotic lands, meet interesting people... and k** them.
The interesting thing about H2 is that you're discouraged from whacking anybody but the target. But there are always guards and soldiers getting in the way.
Secret of Mana,
Street fighter 2,
Zelda: link to the past.
Interestingly, all on the SNES.
Xenon 2 and Turrican on the Sega Megadrive were pretty great, too.
stavs: I remember playing Frontier: Elite II on my amiga 600, but by god it was baffling. I think I was in hyperspace for ten minutes, looking for anything that would clue me the hell up.
Another modern classic :)
>>The interesting thing about H2 is that you're discouraged from whacking anybody but the target.
Yeah, never did like that game ;)
Anybody ever play M.U.L.E. on the C64? That was a sweet multiplayer game.
Herzog Zwei on the Genesis was pretty cool, too? I believe it was the first Command-and-Conquer-style "real-time strategy" game. I still have a copy.
For party games, nothing beats Bomberman on the SNES.
But Quake I & II have got to be my favorites.
Now there was a game I played constantly!

photon, sometimes wishes come true - da da da:
Cliff Johnson's original Fool's Gold Downloads [fools-errand.com].
Simple but addictive
In the Arcade:
Bubble Bobble - you had to know all the power up stuff tho
Neverhood - short game all in all but absolutely fantastic - best storyline I've ever come across in a game.
Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 - PC
Railroad Tycoon 2 - PC
The Sims - PC
C&C 2 Red Alert - PC
Red Baron 2 - PC
Panzer General - PC
Steel Panthers - PC
Toobin' - Nintendo
Gran Turismo 2 - PS1
Take The Money and Run - Odssey 2 (My friend and I used to sit and play this one for hours.)
Bubble Bobble - our local arcade still had an original cabinet up until a February - never was so much fun had for a mere 10 pence!
WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos
Fort Apocolypse -C64 *****
Blue Max -C64*****
I wish I had a million dollars....
Excellent find! Thank you.
I wonder why they say the CD won't run on WindowsXP (which, of course, is what I have now).
If anyone likes to use more brain power than fire power when playing computer games, I highly recommend this.
hard hat mac
starcraft (lost my brother to this one for a few months)
>I wish I had a million dollars....
well, i wish the same, lol :)
>the CD won't run on WindowsXP (which, of course, is what I have now).
Damn, if i'd have known that you use xp now, i' wouldn't have done the research to find the download (seriously joking).
If ya need a old mac for your retro gaming moods, drop me a sticky ... joking again, i don't give my ole macs to people who use xp, lol ;)
... he, he, my old apple II still runs donkey kong flawless. ;)
Now, what was that old Speccy game where you had to move from room to room by building steps, towers, stairs and the like? Your 'player' could split into two.
I liked that.
[Edit] - ah ha - 'twere Head Over Heels
After seeing this thread growing and growing i'd like to just drop a quick idea fwiw: imagine running a death mach competiton over the net for WebmasterWorld members - could be a new entertaining event - something happening once a year or so? Sure, only supporters allowed to join, he, he, he. ;) I'd offer to host the server for such a event - fat bandwith guaranteed. If memory serves me right, googleguy is a doom / quake player, no!? Imagine ... >:]
