So there’s this Force Field, right, and it’s coming right towards you, and if you don’t step to the left or the right at the correct moment, then you’ll be a dead. A Dead. Why this has to be, I can’t tell you. It just is.

Who hasn’t ever wanted to be put in a cage in a smelly room by the Skull Master? I know I have. And now you can, by playing THE FORCE.

This is basically the same as Skull Castle on the Vic-20 Cassette 50

The Force (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 49)

“Hey! Let’s play Rock, Paper, Scissors”

Ummmm, OK, if yoiu really want to Cassette 50. Let’s go. I choose paper!

“I choose rock”.

Yay! I win! Another game Cassette 50?

*sulkily* “Yeah, I guess so”

Come on, don’t be like that. He we go again.

I choose paper

“I choose sword”

Sword? There’s no sword! It’s rock, paper or scissors!

“No, I choose sword. All must bow before me or I’ll chop your heads off”.

Fuck.

Exchange & The Force (Acorn Electron Cassette 50 Games 49 & 50)

And so we come to the last two games. It has been a marathon slog of mediocre, bewildering and downright awful games, and I have to admit I’m actually pretty sad to be reaching this point.

But there are still two more games listed on the Cassette inlay for us to enjoy. The names are promising. Here we go…

Er…there’s no easy way to say this. But the nasty sting in the tail of Cassette 50 is that there are not “50 fantastic games on one cassette” as they promised, but 48. These last two are missing from the Acorn Electron version. After all these months Cassette 50 has managed to have the final laugh, and I am begrudgingly giving it my respect for leading me on this merry dance.

Cassette 50, you evil genius.
