We woke-up to an early Christmas present on Rocketship Weird Retro this morning. The original bread-bin style Commodore 64 I'd ordered finally arrived. My lad and I immediately unpacked it, and got to work installing in the the command module of the rocketship.
It came with an array of classic games, some I'd forgotten about until I held the cassette box in my hand. Beach-head, Impossible Mission, Pitstop II, Bubble Bobble, Spy Hunter... The list of games went on and on. Was pleased to find a cartridge copy of International Soccer. And The Hobbit, for a bit of text based adventuring late into the night. Let the old school times roll.
My lad seemed most interested in the forgotten Arctic Computing classic "Humpty Dumpty in the Garden". He was all over that when he saw the cassette. Funny, he knew right away how to stick the cassette in and press play. Retro computing must be in the genes.
