Good times.

I never owned this, but I played on it before. Haven't played on C64 since the '90s.

I remember spending hours in Starcross just trying to figure out how to open the outer hatch on the alien spaceship. I also remember my brother and I laughing ourselves sick by making the little guy in Mission Impossible fall to his death over and over again -- AAAAAAaaaAAAAAAAHHHHhhhhhh!!!

Good times. I've still got a C64 (and a bunch of games for it), I just don't have it set up at the moment.

Starcross is a text adventure. Those were always very tough to work out what on earth you are supposed to do. On the Hulk i got stuck right at the start where you are tied to your chair. Apparently ou have to write 'bite lip' which turns you into the hulk. What a stupid thing! how are you supposed to know to bite your lip. And famous five i also played a bit that was a text adventure.

I have seen mission impossible but never played it. That has the simulated speech at the start doesnt it. (stay a while.. stay FOREVER!).

Yep, that's the one. It also throws in another line or two throughout the game like "Destroy him, my robots" when you enter certain rooms or maniacal laughter when you lose your last life.

Text adventures were my favorite -- I could spend hours trying to guess what to do next in the Zork games, but I never could figure out what the hell I was supposed to do in Deadline (you have to be in certain places at certain times, and good luck trying to figure out which of the eleventy billion locations you're supposed to be in during which times).

Speaking of simulated speech, I have a copy of the S.A.M. text to speech program, but it was copied a bit wonky so it takes some fiddling with the drive and a screwdriver just to get it to boot up at all.

I never played the Questprobe Hulk text adventure, but I do have a copy of the Spider-Man one where you're trying to solve a bunch of Mysterio's traps. And yeah, some of the solutions were pretty goofy. Is Sandman stopping you from getting a gem out of a crib? No problem, just enter the room by crawling on the ceiling instead of walking on the floor and he won't notice you at all (what?).

Do you own a C64? I used to have one but it was thrown away unfortunately.
