I'm asking this because, along with the Spanish tutorial software, I found the computer game "You Don't Know Jack!" the other day. I've played it several times and it is still fun!

That's not old school.
I occasionally pull out such titles as Boulder Dash and Impossible mission. Got a port of Breakout on my iPod. Addictinggames has a flash version of Pong too.

I still have Oregon Trail, though that isn't technically "old" old school. But I would give a lot to be able to play Spy vs. Spy on Sega again! And Montezuma's Revenge. Man those were sweet games!

I have the first "Age of Empires", Jezzball, Pharro's(spl?) Tomb ( DOS version ), Oregon Trail, and some games I wrote in GWBasic that my kids and I still play. We also have many real old shareware games in DOS.

"You Don't Know Jack" is CLASSIC????????? rolleyes.gif

You young whippersnappers, you don't know what CLASSIC means.

"Adventure" or "The Collossal Cave" on the school's mainframe.

"Pong" on your TV.

"Centipede", "Space Invaders", "Galaga" in arcades. beer_mug.gif beer_mug.gif beer_mug.gif

dfilpus,

Don't forget "Tetra", and the old moon buggy game - that music was cute. I also remember a missile command game (firing down incoming ICBMs from your own bunkers)........okay, now I'm feeling old!

Space Invaders...that brings back memories!

Did any of you ever watch "Futurama"? There was this one episode where Earth was being attacked by the Space Invaders, and the only one who could save the planet was Fry because he was from the 1980s. Anyway, this episode had all the video game characters from the 1980s in it. Pac-Man, the Mad Bomber from Kaboom!, Pitfall Harry, Mario, Donkey Kong, etc.

There are people still writing games for C64. Look on www.c64.org. there are some games copyright 2004. Anyone remember Astroblaster?

And I never have been able to figure out the first Back to the Future game.
