I may be being a tad unfair on this game, as I was a big fan of text adventures as a kid. If anyone does want a proper gameplay video if this one please let me know!

Coming next – Commodore 64 Cassette 50 and other videos…

Like a stupid moth to a stupid flame I am going back in. This time it’s the turn of Commodore 64 Cassette 50. At least that fulfils the more colour and sounds requirement I had after playing through the 50 monochrome gems on the ZX81 Cassette 50.

But, that’s not all. There’s going to be more videos of other games, with added voiceovers! Whether that is a good or bad thing remains to be seen. Here’s the new trailer for my YouTube channel. Please subscribe!

Exchange (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 50)

50_zx81_exchnage

Well it’s been a slog I have to admit. And I am looking forward to getting away from monochrome ZX81 games and getting into something a bit more colourful. And by that I mean a Cassette 50 on another 8-bit format that is a bit more colourful. And has sound effects. There is no escaping Cassette 50 for me.

But first, the final hurdle. Exchange.

It’s Connect 4, basically. But, this being Cassette 50, it’s fucked and even when you line up 4 counters in a row like you’re supposed to the game doesn’t stop. It goes on and on and on and on. Because, you see, Cassette 50 can’t bear you to leave it. You can never leave, not even until after it has sucked out your very soul and left you a battered and broken person. Not even then.

I hate you Cassette 50.

(I love you Cassette 50).

The Force (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 49)

“Hey! Let’s play Rock, Paper, Scissors”

Ummmm, OK, if yoiu really want to Cassette 50. Let’s go. I choose paper!

“I choose rock”.

Yay! I win! Another game Cassette 50?

*sulkily* “Yeah, I guess so”

Come on, don’t be like that. He we go again.

I choose paper

“I choose sword”

Sword? There’s no sword! It’s rock, paper or scissors!

“No, I choose sword. All must bow before me or I’ll chop your heads off”.

Fuck.

I really don’t know what I can tell you. Look at the screenshot above. Watch the video below. If you can tell me what is going on you’re a better person than I am.

Jet Mobile (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 47)

zx81 jet mobile 1

Look at my Jet Mobile. Look at it go. I can drive it through these gate like things, and even if I drive over them it doesn’t matter because my jet mobile is even harder than Pele after he’s taken his erectile dysfunction tablets.

At first there seems to be very little point to driving my Jet Mobile around other than to show off and try and go through those markers, though eventually Cassette 50 decides to put you out of your misery and show you some kind of score:
