Used to play Guild of Thieves and Knight Games constantly. If I'm not mistaken, I think the first Zork game I played was on the C64 as well.

Ahh, the good ole days, where text only andventure games cost $50. :lulz:

Anyone here used to read Zzap64 mag? I loved the Houghton/Hamza/Glancey era, but stopped buying when they were all summarily fired for some strange reason.

Didn't have any of those, but my mom had boxes of issues of Ahoy! mag. Those were cool because some (if not all) issues had pages upon pages of code you could use to write the games yourself.

:tu: I had a coupla books with assembly code programs you could type in to create your own games, too. Amazing what u could do with just a few hundred lines of basic, tho.
If I remember correctly, the user guide was 200 or so pages, mostly examples of BASIC demonstration programs. :lol:

My friend used to have one we played on now and then, but for the life of me I can't remember a single game on it. I guess he didn't have any worth remembering.
