Now, if I was stuck in a tunnel I’d want to escape. And I’m sure you would too. So it’s good to get some practice in case it ever happens.
Step forward Cassette 50’s Tunnel Escape.
Now I need you to do a few things for me:
- Press play on the video below.
- Pause it at about 4 seconds in. Read the instructions. Read them again. Scratch your head in bewilderment.
- Press play again.
- Wait until the 38 second mark, like I had to, while the computer “digs itself out” (selfish fucker, if it was making it’s escape surely the friendly thing to do would be to take me with it instead of leaving me in the dark to find my own way out).
- See that my game of Tunnel Escape lasted all of 3 seconds, and that after I pressed the “up” key once I was told “YOU ARE LOST”.
Classic Cassette 50. Classic.
