    Sweet dude, I bought a book on C++ programming and on the disk they give a bunch of source codes for games so I might be able to tinker with something similar in complexity to Monster perhaps, hopefully more (and in color).

    I think Cosmic Osmo was one of the first games I ever played on the MAC :) Wow, it was such a long time ago! I loved flying around in the space ship, changing the music on the spaceship stereo!
    I seem to remember a singing-and-dancing tomato ketchup bottle! :D

    The first game I played on the PC was probably the original Command & Conqueror! I played that so much, I used to spend hours in front on the screen attacking the enemy base!

    hehe, nice dude, yeah that ship was pretty cool and there was a ketchup bottle allright, it was the dog bowl with the bone that make noise of different pitches as you moved up it with the cursor that really gripped me though.
    Yeah C&C games are classics, I remember watching a friend play that a while back, I think his units were being mauled by dogs or something.

    Hahaha..yep, Red Alert 1. Dogs = fun as hell. I remember the first C&C. Had the best damn soundtrack in the world "I'm a mechanical man". That must have been one of the first games my Dad bought for me (mostly, we got them from other people...we were a cheap family). ;) I wasn't familiar with Macs until I met you and your bro, Exfoliate. And I guess you got the PC/Sega/Bubsy addiction from me (what have I done?! Your dad must hate me!). Ahh..good times.

    We both enriched eachothers lives, you got a taste of how generally abysmal mac gaming could be (with a few mentioned exceptions, and don't forget bugdom!), and I got a feel for what "real games" were like. My dad has learned to accept my dependency so it's all good:) You really must get that bubsy rom dude.

    That game was great, as were all the old Lucasarts games. This was much later, but ever play Grim Fandango?

    Either Beast, Space invaders or Alley Cat. I think Beast though. That was an awesome game! ;p And Alley cat too, I can still remember the tune even though it is ages ago I played it.

    I can't remember whether it was Monkey Island, Sim Ant, or the Original Oregon Trail, I just remember that I was so impressed with my Pentium Pro 180 after upgrading from a 486! That thing could run the latest games like Starcraft with almost no slow down!

    It was Wolfenstein 3D. Hell of a masterpiece it is. It's got the WW2 flair, some fear-factor (remember those zombies with schmeisers in their stomacks), fast-paced action and thinking (no straight forward stuff). Also, some storyline there. :cool:

    Just found another old favourite (actually 2)...

    The 7th Guest & The 11th Hour. Despite the ratings being 15 and 18, I still used to play them when I was about 5.

    I've also found out I can play Monkey Island 1 & 2 on my phone because it's a Smartphone so can run the Symbian Version of DosBox. I'll try to get it working on my brothers PSP... :D#

    Just looked at the post I made above: Date 06-02-2006 :S A Year ago! Have I really been a member that long and only 359 posts!!?!

    Wow, totally forgot about Jazz, that was a load of fun and still holds up okay really, as does Duke.

    I was probably Chessmaster 2000 for me though I remember playing hangman (if that counts) on a BBC.
