Hot tip – if you know you’re on a planet that may explode, don’t wait until the last minute to refuel your ship to leave.

It’s reassuring to know that, in the event of an alien invasion of earth, we could be saved by merely guessing (to within 10) how many aliens are coming to get us.

Maze Eater (Atari 8-bit Cassette 50 Game 1)

Well this is factually incorrect. I’m not eating any mazes here. I’m eating pills. Tasty, tasty pills. Mmmmmm. No wonder I’m seeing ghosts and imagining that I am a giant head with only a mouth and no body.

You’ve had some microfilm stolen, and it’s for a well highly developed radar system no less. You stupid bastard. Be more careful.

High Rise (Amstrad Cassette 50 Game 48)

cpc_48_highrise_wp

The object of this game is to refuel your helicopter, so you go along to where there used to be a runway. Now, I don’t know how long it was since you were last there, but someone has managed to build an entire town on it. Do you fly off and try and refuel somewhere else? No! You bomb the place of course. You cruel bastard.

Weirdly, there is a game basically the same as this already on the Amstrad Cassette 50, called Whirly. This one is slightly better though.
