I wasted hours of my life on my C64 (most of it waiting for the bloody games to load!)

I also used to play Last Ninja ;) I remember being blown away by the graphics! :D :rolleyes:

Other favourites...

Green Beret
720
California Games
Outrun
Ollie and Lisa :eek:
Track & Field
Summer Games
Nike


I can't remember the name of one game which I spent days playing - it was kind of like double dragon - you played a guy who had to walk through the city beating up skaters and guys with dogs & baseball bats. I just can't remember what it was called!! :mad: :rolleyes: :(

Are there any C64 emulators out there? What's the deal with them, are they legal in terms of copyright? I mean its not as if anyone buys Commodore games anymore. :confused:

Edit

Just found this site: www.lemon64.com brings back many memories!

I simply cannot believe you excluded the Amstrad CPC464 from this contest. It was clearly the best (come back to me ATV Simulator :(), especially if you had one of the very early units with Mono Green monitor :D.

You're right. I shoudn't have forgotten the Amstrad!
State of the art 'cause it had it's own monitor. I had the version mentioned above. Green screen and built in tape deck ! Happy memories:) Does anyone out there remember the Dragon 32?
My dad used to own one. I remember i used to sit for hours typing in B.A.S.I.C. (who remembers what that stands for?)programs from a very thick book. How far we've come in 20 odd years.:eek:

I remember the Dragon - and I used to have an Oric! Anyone else have one of those?
Dragons, Orics, BBCs, etc all look like calculators now compared to modern spec systems.

I downloaded the C64 Emulator last night - the games are all about 50kb in size!!! I used to pay over £10 for some of those!!

in our memories anyway.... Amstrad cpc464 with a green montior was the one I used to have. Best games were subsunk and fruty frank - along with that adventure game creator.

Also, was that double dragon type game called renegade?

Oh, the C64 rocked.

Gateway to Apshai
Might & Magic
Pool of Radiance
Buck Rogers
Ad Infinitum
Bards Tale series
Jumpman
Henry's House
Sword of Fargoal

The list goes on. BTW, there are several C64 emulators out there. Speaking of, I'm off to get one. The PC version of Bards Tale III is crap compared to the C64 version.

I had a Dragon 32.

I remeber many an hour writting my own games in BASIC - to name a few:

Boot Hill.
Centiped.
Tank Battle
Pontoon.

I loved that little (huge) computer.

YES! That was the one! Cheers! I remember thinking that this was about as cool as it got back in 1987! :D

Did anyone else used to buy Commodore (or other computer) magazines? I used to buy Commodore User - it seems funny now looking back that they were able to dedicate entire magazines to such cheap & nasty games! :D :devil:
I remember when The Last Ninja came out - it was treated like it was gonna be the greatest game of all time!

Does anyone else think that games were so much harder back then? Or maybe it was because I was so young? They just seemed to be more frustrating.

yeah - you're right = they did seem harder!!! i'm not sure if it was because I was young either.... - i wish i still had my commodore (had about 200 games) - but my parents sold it in the bl*ody boot sale!!!! I WAS DEVASTATED!!!:D

I had the spectrum , my cousin had the C64. I was always rather envious of games like Beachhead and Activisions Decathalon on the C64. Oh and off course all those Jeff Minter games, I'd love an XBox version of Revenge of the mutant camels ;)

That said I used to love Trashman on the spectrum and I remember spending ages playing Atic Atac with my brother making huge maps of the game.

Upgraded to an Atari 130XE in 86

hehehehe!!! :D Revenge of the mutant camels!! talk about memory lane.....

one of my favorite games on the C64 was "Way of the Exploding Fist" - proper fighting game - requires thought as opposed to bashing buttons! Wish they'd bring a version of that on the XBox too :D
