Bruce Lee ('B') was one of my fav C64 games, bitd. Jumpman and Wonderboy were fun too. But we especially enjoyed Summer Games and California Games.

Didn't have an Amiga.

Game on!

going from a C64 to an Amiga 500 felt like the equivalent of going from an Intellivision to a NES

dig them out, the market for 90s PCs is apparently pretty hot right now. Lots of people building original machines to play the classics.

The classics for me were the Sierra games - all the quests.. King's Quest, Police Quest, Space Quest, Leisure Suit Larry etc.

mid-late 80's I fondly remember Montezuma's revenge that I'd secretly play in the school's PC lab... It was an underground maze through mines etc. As you passed a certain level the lower levels would be dark you could only see the character and enemies but nothing else. Black Screen. The more you finished levels, the higher the darkness would start at. If you got far enough the whole game would be in the dark. I could play it all in the dark. Knew the whole map of mazes and caves. I rolled it over and could play as long as I wanted. Wasted youth lol.
