Norwegia Ninja - Retro Games
Now that we've discussed classic Ninja movies, it's time to talk about another key influence on the movie, the first wave of home computer games.
Norwegian Ninja's director was a Commodore 64 man but I was more of a Spectrum kind of guy.
So I'm going to nominate my favourite titles and you're free to do likewise...
Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy
Escape From Scumthorpe
Chuckie Egg is a classic, but behold the wonder of......Paperboy.
I used to play it for hours at a time.
"Give me grain or give me death!"
Say to Thorin" Open Window"
Say to Thorin "Carry Me"
Say to Thorin "Go to Window"
With one well placed blow Thorin cleaves your skull
When I was 8 by brother handed me down his ZX Spectrum I played lots of game but a few I quite enjoyed were:
Horace goes skiing
Super Robin hood
Ghost's n Goblins
Daley Thompson's Decathlon(fingers used to ache after playing this)
You can play these games here
ZX Spectrum Games - ZXSpectrum.net
Any love out there for Mastertronic and Firebird Games (Didn't BT own Firebird?). The 1.99 and 2.99 Budget titles, sometimes seemingly programmed at breakfast before the meeting, so woefully shaky were some of the games.
Mind you, Booty was always an impossible favourite.
