My post this morning about the Commodore Vic 20 got me thinking about how much fun I had with my second computer, the Commodore 64, which I’ve rhapsodized before.
One of the games I remember fondly is B.C.‘s Quest for Tires. As I may have mentioned, all of my games were pirated by one of my dad’s co-worker’s kids, so they weren’t marked on the floppy. I had to memorize the file paths of my favorite games. This was one I couldn’t remember. Damn, it was so much fun to play! Need to find a copy on the emulator, stat!
Man, I loved me some Commodore 64 as a kid. Hell, we had a Vic 20 before that, but the games were primitive! To be entirely honest, I was pretty much only playing educational games when we had that, so maybe I’d have fonder memories if I wasn’t playing word games on it.
I remember asking to “play computer” on rainy days growing up, and when I did, I’d haul ass upstairs to play games like Bruce Lee. Now I’m playing on my iPhone and the magic’s gone. The interface makes it nearly impossible to carry out the repetitive moves that once made this game so much fun. What went wrong?
I’m reaching out to you to find out your favorite iPhone games. Sure, nostalgia let me down once, but I’d love to check out old Nintendo games like Super Mario, or the weird stuff I couldn’t afford like Neo Geo games and so on. Share your favorites in the comments.
