I Think I'll look for an online version for Blue Max later today. Sure there are sites with all my old Commodore favorites.
Commodores actually ahd video game cartridges back then too. I had Soccer and some other game. Most were on floppy though.
I remember having Omegarace on cartridge, Asteroids style of game. And some of my earlier games were on cassette. Buying a 5 1/4" floppy drive was not cheap back then, I want to say it was in the $100 range when they were first available.
I never had the cassette player, but I remember those 5 1/4" floppies quite well. I also remember getting those computer magazines and asking my mom to type in those short games that they had the codes for.
Favorite C64 game though had to have been either Jumpman or Bruce Lee.
Oh, & to get back on topic... EXPLOSIONS??!?
Some people are like slinkies; not really good for anything, but they do bring a smile to your face when they're pushed down the stairs.
