Continuing a proud tradition (see here and here), Nim is a game I will never win because the computer consistently cheats. I hate you Nim.

Force Field (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 21)

c64_21_forcefield_wp

Take my advice. Stay away from SPONGS. You don’t want to enrage a SPONG. Bad, naughty SPONGS.

Motorway (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 20)

“Cross the road to rescue the girl” apparently. Which is hard when your character is as light as a feather and can get crumpled up by a remote control car.

Thin Ice (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 18)

c64_18_thinice_wp

In which a particularly careless man must be helped to cross some bridges without falling into some water. Or some thin ice, maybe. It’s not made clear. Have a look:

Ski Jump (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 15)

c64_15_skijump_wp

Or ‘Downhill Ski Jump’ as it seems to suggest once the game is loaded. Who hasn’t wanted to ski down a slope littered with houses, trees and…giant mushrooms?

Pontoon (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 14)

c64_14_pontoon_wp

Who thought it would be good to present the game of Pontoon in a text only style, especially on a computer like the Commodore 64? Cassette 50, of course, the idiots.

Here’s a game about…something. Not entirely sure what. But I do know I like the farting noises it makes:
