Planets Defender (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 37)

c64_37_planets_wp

If the aliens ever invade earth you have nothing to worry about. And you have nothing to worry about because there is one whole missile to protect us all. One whole missile that can be piloted by someone as inept as me, and that will surely fight off the invaders, and not miss them completely because it’s really hard to control.

Rocket Launch (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 36)

c64_36_rocketlaunch_wp

This game is actually pretty good as far as Cassette 50 goes. And serves as a nice history lesson about countries that were once part of the USSR. I am rubbish at strategy games though, as the video attests:

Submarines (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 35)

Who hasn’t wanted to drop depth charges from a boat that doesn’t seem to be able to move down onto a submarine that is minding it’s own business at the bottom of the ocean? Well now you can!

Ghosts (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 34)

c64_34_ghosts_wp

Another poor Pac-Man clone, very much like Maze Eater from this very same compilation! Why do you need two clones of the same game on one tape Cassette 50? Why?

Inferno (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 33)

A maze! That’s on Fire! Oh no!

Obviously, the colour of that on fire, blazing maze would be…blue?

BLUE?! WTF are you thinking Cassette 50?

Intruder (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 32)

It’s happened to all of us, hasn’t it? That day when you’re in a rush to get somewhere and you find yourself stuck in a garden full of weeds growing all around you, leaving you helplessly trapped. Those days are annoying aren’t they? Yeah.

Phaser (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 31)

c64_31_phaser_wp

What would you do if you had a bunch of gravestones marching upon you, their only intent to crush you? I know what I’d do, and that would be run away. Why you’d stand and shoot back at them is anyone’s guess, you idiot. Do you know how fast a gravestone can run? Not very, that’s the answer.
