Comparisons of Many Versions of Donkey Kong

26 08 2012

Alright… I know way too long between posts. Can’t fix it as I don’t have a time machine, but I can say sorry. Sorry.

Anyway, here’s a 14+ minute video comparing a crap load of Donkey Kong (classic) versions on different, old systems.

Enjoy!





Play the classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy game in your browser

2 05 2009

The kind folks across the pond at the BBC have been kind enough to bring us thehhgtg classic Infocom text adventure, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in a groovy and easy to use flash interface that you play right in your browser.

I first played this game on a friend’s Commodore 64, and later on my little brother’s Atari 600XL. I really enjoyed this game a lot.

If you are familiar with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy works by Douglas Adams, then I won’t go and describe the characters and scenarios other than it follows the line of the story, from Arthur Dent’s house being bulldozed and the destruction of the Earth to the moment they step out and onto the planet Magrathea. If you aren’t familiar with the works of Douglas Adams, then go buy the recordings of the original BBC radio play, the books (all five of the trilogy), find copies of the TV series on DVD… then play this game. Fans of Adams work, and fans of the classic text adventures should love this.
