Have the review up by Sunday, or there will be no allowance next weekend!

I just played the game for a few minutes, and remembered how awesome it was back in the days. Of course it doesn't feel the same now, but then again, when you get something for free, it rarely does.

I'm too young to remember, but one of my friends had an old atari system ages ago and he had a game called 'Mission Elevator'? Anyone remeber that, I have fuzzy memories of it from days long gone by....


Edit: actually I found an old screenshot...

Looks like a mutant crossbreed of Impossible Mission.

At the begining, you descend down into the first part of the castle on a rope and the game kinda has Castlevania platformer type gameplay. Am I right?
You may be! I'll go check it out. Thanks a bunch. I'll send you a new mix CD soon, and I'll have it hand-delivered to you by Kasumi.

I wish I had that game.

Some of those Amiga games look mighty interesting. Leander, Dragon Breed, God, etc.

Just downloaded an Amiga emulator for PSP. There is some trouble with the sound and finding roms that works, but apart from that it works pretty good. But it is kind of slow, compared to the SNES and Genesis emulator I also have running on the PSP.

Hi there everybody.
I'm new to this site, and i really need the help of somebody who knows about C64 games.
Im starting to go mad, cos its all i can think about sometimes.

I am looking for info on a game I used to play some 15+ years ago, but unfortunately i can't remember the name of it, or which games company released it.

I can best describe it as been a game where as an adventurer the player had to make their way through numerous levels/worlds avoiding all manner of baddies and nasties, and inparticular HELLHOLES!

The hellholes stick in my mind quite vividly as they were quite big sprites on the screen and somewhat colourful. they were red and yellow in colour and if you fell into one of these, the game was either over or you lost a life.

This game was a distraction for me when i was at school, I used to play it all the time, and had many hours of fun playing it.

PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN HELP IN MY QUEST TO FIND THIS GAME PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.

thanks C64_UK-PAUL.

There's a site called Underground Gamer if you don't mind torrents, I'm currently halfway through downloading every commodore64 game on one zip file. 902,000+ files, lol.

I've already downloaded collections for the Snes, Nes, Turbografx16, Genesis, Gameboy/Color and Master System.

Finally, I will know some stuff about C64 and Amiga games.

Note-Before any misunderstanding happened, C64 and Amiga, either did not release in my country or I was not born when any one of them released, so it is not my fault.
OMG! I was soo cute! <3
