I was never a huge fan of this game – the formula got old really quickly and I had already had my fill of explore ’em ups by then, but it certainly had its naive charm. Of course, in this day and age of hardcore zombie violence, their naiveté will get them killed in seconds.

Bonus trivia: This is the first game I ever got paid to review! That was pretty cool day in the arcades let me tell you. Special thanks to Mister J for the game suggestion and the emergency punchline assistance.
Thanks to Hiraldo for the suggestion today. He played Lemmings 1 and 2 more than any man really ever should. I usually just got ticked off with it after a few levels and vowed never to play it again…which lasted about a day or two.
C64 version is a technical marvel, by the way, and one of the last versions of the original made. Which is funny, since Lemmings started as a tech demo on the C64 a year before it was released on the Amiga. And that’s today’s C64 history lesson done with!
If you haven’t played Space Taxi, then I don’t know what to say. I feel bad for you. Maybe we can start a charity organisation that helps people who haven’t played Space Taxi get set up with a Commodore 64, an old CRT television and a joystick that breaks within a day of buying it. It’s the only way to live!
This one’s a lot like the intro to Double Dragon – a horrible mugging takes place and it’s only afterward that the player character / hero remembers they’re a master swordsman / street brawler / banjo player.
Video game logic!
And if anyone can explain the ending to Golden Axe to me then they’re a real hero in my book
Team 17 have been redoing Worms over and over again since they first made it for the Amiga way back when. Recently, they brought back another one of their beloved games, Alien Breed, to digital download services and unfortunately it was a bit crap. It’s only a matter of time before they go further through their back catalogue and find good ol’ Superfrog waiting…
Sort of inspired by true events that could have happened somewhere at some points!
You guys should see the front yard it’s like a pond now.
STOP THINKING YOU KNOW BETTER THAN ME iPHONE AAAAGH
…oh who am I kidding I could never hate you let’s never fight again.
Whatever happened to Leann Rimes, anyway? She’s the one who taught us all that you can’t fight the moonlight.
