    Default Games that never age

    Through the joys of modern emulator software it's possible to enjoy all your favourite games from yester-year. Most of them seem awful to play now but some are still just as playable today, even if they're over 20 years old now.
    The ones that have not aged at all for me are;
    Manic Miner, Way of the Exploding Fist, Bruce Lee, Green Beret and Wizball.

    I was playing Wizball on my Amiga just a few days ago lol!
    Head Over Heels on the Spectrum was brilliant.

    I've tried Wizball on Amiga . For some reason it's just not right. Maybe it's because I grew up with the C64 version. But Stunt Car Racer on the Amiga is pretty hard to beat.

    Chaos Engine on Amiga (have it on my Cellphone!), Elite on C64, Impossible Mission on C64 ('Stay a while....') Perils of Willy on VIC-20.... the list goes on..

    Nursery, kitchen sink, or their own faces.

    Cool Re: Games that never age

    Mercenary (by Novagen) is another one - SO many hours lost to the struggle between the Palyars and the Mechanoids. Check here for a way to relive those memories... for free!

    Oh - and PARADROID....

    Mario is still on the go. Still a favorite to many.
