    Does anyone else remember this absolute classic PC game from the early 1990s?

    LucasArts have re-released it as a digital download, and have completely updated all the graphics and given the characters audio speech etc. When you're playing it you can instantly 'switch' between the classic and the updated one as they have build the new version over the top of the old one!

    Anyway - if you want to re-live a classic, its here

    (be warned - the download is 2100 meg!!!!!)

    I've got the original game!

    There are a lot of old games you can get as abandonware these days.
    All you need is DosBox and you can get most of them to run quite easily!

    I've got Monkey Island 1 and 2, Star Wars X-Wing, a couple of star trek and Indiana Jones games as well!

    Do I remember it !! Fantastic game, very clever use of the technology that was available at the time. -

    I only have one more thing to say on this topic, and it is "Rubber Chicken with a Pulley in the Middle!"

    Monkey Island was always one of my faves. Day of the Tentacle was also a point and click classic! If a bit weird!

    I bought the new one for Kepps - I just play it on his pc when he's finished. I bought the original for myself though, those games were so good - I hope they rerelease the others also!

    Having never come across the term before, I typed it into Google.....

    .... you do realise that you're going to be responsible for me spending hours and hours (more) sat at the PC now, don't you?:(;)

    Yes! I was exactly the same when I found it!

    You can get emulators for gameboys and mega drives and stuff.

    my hard drive is full of allsorts of old games that I used to play.

    I can't get Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis though :(
