The moon landings. Are they real or not? Well, to be honest if it’s this difficult then there’s no way they could have been achieved:

“Right Mr Collins, welcome back to the Cassette 50 School of Motoring. Today you’re going to be overtaking some other cars.”

That sounds OK, I think I can handle that. But tell me how this is different to what we did when playing Motorway?

“It’s just different. Trust me. Will you trust me?”

OK, OK, I will. There’s no way you’d pull the exact same trick on me as before is there? Of course not. Off I go, see you back here in a few minutes…OH MOTHER OF GOD WHY CAN’T I SLOW DOWN AGAIN? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO THE BRAKES AGAIN?? OH FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK AGAIN!

CRASH.

AGAIN.

Lunar Lander (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 4)

4 Lunar Lander ZX81

Those astronauts have been lying to us for years, with all those many months of training and exams and making sure they can face the rigours of travelling to space. I know just how easy it is to pilot a lunar lander now. All you have to do is press the correct key when it flashes on the screen.

Dead easy.

Although, maybe not that easy. I crashed it. Sorry NASA. I do have fully comprehensive insurance if that helps? 3rd party fire and theft?

This is going to fuck my premiums right up.

Cassette 50 takes us on the motorway. Except on this motorway there are only two lanes and two cars. You have to avoid the other car. Which on the face of it doesn’t sound too difficult does it?

Well, just watch the video. I am the green car at the top, merrily driving along in my lane. Maybe singing along to the radio. Quietly, mind you, so that no one hears me.  I see the other car in the other lane and think “Well, there’s no chance of a collision here, he’s clearly in the other lane coming towards me and can see me. I’ll just stay here in my lane. Nothing is going to happen today. No crashes or anything….WHAT THE FUCK?! WHY DID YOU JUST SWERVE INTO MY CAR FOR NO REASON YOU FUCKER?”

“You crashed into the Computer” it says. No. He crashed into me. And he’ll be hearing from my insurance company.
