bloody mess in the melee of lopping heads off and blood everywhere as
the slain opponent drops to his knees with a fountain of blood from
the severed neck...
...the highly successful predecessor to "Barbarian" was the Kung Fu
game "The Way Of The Exploding Fist" - awesome. Another fighting game
was "Karate Devils" ..... not as great.
The greatest SF adventure / strategy action game on Commodore 64 and
ZX Spectrum: "Elite" - you could even trade illicit drugs and weapons
and go to planets with Anarchy or Feudal systems. I remember i cheated
and had a docking computer and shields and extra lasers from the very
start..... bought a warp drive and went to other galaxies for the drug
early C64/Vic 20 game with very creepy music: Forbidden Forest....
other C64 great games we played alot: "Beach Head", "Blue Max", "Aztec
Challenge" (very gory and twisted), "Cauldron" (with the bouncing
pumpkin). I also had "Tubular Bells" pixel psychedelic thing. I
remember Tony Crowther was a famous composer of many games...
...another great Commodore 64 game was the one in a city where you run
around with a green mohawk mugging old ladies and beat up blind people
wandering around with canes.... can't remember the name of it.
Some more great games were: Knuckleduster, Frank Bruno's Boxing, Ankh,
The Staff Of Karnath (super creepy music), Manic Miner (watch out for
the poison plants!), Prodigy, Doppleganger... and the ultra-gory
Nemesis The Warlock and Judge Dredd games.
Not to mention all those Infocom box set adventure text games (the
classic Zork trilogy, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Cutthroats to
name a few). ...
I still have all that shit in boxes, but no working cassette deck.
