No way!!! They have Karateka!!!

I was the only girl in the family that liked playing games, but my family couldn't afford to buy them just for me (if my sister couldn't share, then it didn't get bought). My entire childhood was spent playing Kaboom and Berzerk on my 2600 that I got as a hand-me-down from a wealthy cousin.

That same wealthy cousin had an AppleII, and at every family gathering, we would play Karateka. That is... when all of my cousins (all boys and all older than me) weren't taking turns beating me up. Ah boys. No wonder I'm in this industry and haven't had a pedicure in three years.

Thanks for the flashback Jamie! Good times.


The Oregon Trail and Alice in Wonderland! W00t!

Oh wait. It requires ActiveX to play in the browser. At least they provide the disks, but I don't remember needing more than one disk to play either game...I had an Apple II c+.

nat loh

Ah, the original version of Ultima III. Brings a tear to the eye, you know? (Although I always did prefer the Commodore version...better graphics, and music!)
