Oh yes, he was by no means an easy fight. The game had a lot of difficult fights. For perspective - it was one of the earliest games I ever played. And I don't think I managed to beat everyone until I was in maybe middle school. I played the game on and off for years and getting the timing down for everyone in a circuit was no joke. This guy still makes me sweat just seeing his old wrinkly face:

Same here, though the only video games-related experience I recall is my mom taking me to work with her a couple of times to let me play Digger cause we didn't have a computer at home. I also remember playing Prince of Persia and Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion for a bit on a friend's computer in Canada but that was it. Never really was my thing.

I was born in '81, so I grew up playing MS-DOS 5.0 shareware and similar games. Memorable favorites include the Commander Keen series by Apogee/id (1990), Wolfenstein 3D (1992), The Incredible Machine (1993), Prince of Persia (1989), many of the 90s adventure games by Sierra like The Black Cauldron, King's Quest, Space Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, etc, Aldo's Adventure (1987), Cauldron II: The Pumpkin Strikes Back (1986), Hocus Pocus (1994), Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure (1992), Test Drive 2: The Duel (1989), the Talking Parrot Sound Blaster demo application by Creative Labs, the MFED MS-DOS ASCII sound module editor, and the DOS-bundled QuickBASIC demo games like NIBBLES.BAS and GORILLA.BAS.

I later got an 8-bit NES and a Genesis but we could only afford a few titles so I played them to death when I wasn't messing around with the local BBS community.



Edit - nearly forgot this classic...

Dunno if anybody else played the Infinity City CD-ROM back in the day, but I just recently learned the name of one of the demos that was on that CD-ROM. It's literally taken me years and years to figure out what it was, and all I had to go off of was that it had a guy with a hat, and a blue dog. Welp, this was it:



I played it many many times when I was younger and never really understood it all that much, but I was thrilled when I figured out what it was. Then I dove deep into that particular time in my life with PC games and all the memories came back.

I'm shocked there's another person here who was born in the USSR in the 1980s and (I'm assuming) left it as a child, and I'm learning it only now. Privet kak dela chto slyshno i tak dalee

Привет!
I've kinda left the forum, only popping in sporadically. Been a bit more active during the last months though. I've been aware of you but yeah, I don't think we've interacted much.
