    Hooked on old games...... still

    Had some time to play around today so I thought I'd take a look at a blast from my past. I grew up playing games on a zx spectrum before learning to write for it. One of the earliest addictive games I played was this one. I give you Jet Set Willy. The father of all platform games. OMG its even harder than I remember. I'm sure as a kid I could cross the banyan tree, been trying all day still no joy!
    Here take a look. Gotta love some of these old games!
    Obviously its a .zip not .txt but boards attatchments feature sucks balls!

    For some ungodly reason, I can play,"Hals Hole in One Golf" for Super Nintendo for hours upon hours. I don't even play golf that much in real life. But for some reason, I can tear up that golf course silly. There is no one who can beat me at this game.

    Dizzy. Those games aren't as difficult as I remember them but are still challenging.

    @Stoned_coder : I've been playing Football Manager (That's REALLY old) for the spectrum on the ZX32 emulator. ZX32 is a very fine emulator IMHO http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Bay/9932/
