Old School

Name the game:



I had the old SE (bought by my Bride in 1988) out and running the other night. These games, and this one especially, are still a lot of fun.

    Nope. It’s called “Beyond Dark Castle.”

    Heh! Shows what I know about old games….

    I do have a functioning Tandy TRS-80 model 100 computer, the original “laptop” computer. It sports an original, all caps, QWERTY keyboard, a 3 line x 40 character LCD, and a whole 2 kilobytes of RAM; offline storage uses a cassette tape deck. And it runs on 4 x AA batteries!

    But the only games on it are those I’ve written, which are no where near your “Beyond Dark Castle”.

    Yep! 😀

    So close, I thought it was the original Dark Castle!

    Sixty rocks but no bombs?

    You might want to rethink your inventory.

    Trash 80…lol. I never played games on that. It was, however the first business (non-mainframe) computer I ever used.

    C-64 was my games computer. Complete with tape-drive. 😛

    Macs were WAY over my budget.

    Remember the old, oooollld games where there were no graphics AT ALL?

    Gather round, children. In my young days you only had prompts. As follows.

    >10 steps E
    >You are in a dark cavern with skeletons on the walls.

    Etc. You had to have a pencil and paper handy to make sense of the thing. Good times.

    Guns, it was pitiful how badly I played!

    Mind you, I blame the 25 year-old mouse, whose rubber ball really isn’t tracking the way it used to…

    This model is the first Mac I ever saw! We used these for “Computer” class in high school. I learned how to draw columns using concentric circles and I was hooked.
