Parachutist (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 46)

c64_46_parachutist_wp

In real life, when people parachute out of a plane do they really have to aim for what looks like a mattress that has been left in a field for them to land on?

I didn’t think so, but that is exactly what is happening here. So, your choices are:

  • Land on the mattress. It’s old, it’s soiled. There are dubious stains in it. It’s been dragged out of a skip. There are hypodermic needles on it too; or,
  • Don’t land on the mattress and break a leg instead.

What would you do…?

HANG ON, HANG ON, HAVE YOU JUST COPIED THIS WORD FOR WORD FROM THE ACORN ELECTRON REVIEW OF THIS GAME?

Why yes, I have. Although it’s called Parachute on the Electron and not Parachutist. So that’s different.
