Cosa ci posso fare se ritengo California Games il miglior gioco sportivo realizzato per Commodore 64? Questo era uno dei pochi giochi che avevo in originale! Sviluppato e distribuito da Epix nel 1987, era uno di quei videogiochi dalla giocabilità eterna. Ancora oggi sento persone che lo rigiocano e rigiocano e rigiocano… 911 more words

The tape cost 12000 lire, the floppy 15000 lire. It was 1988 and the sequel to Cybernoid was released, the videogame programmed by Raffaele Cecco with the timeless soundtrack of Jeroen Tel. The following year it would be released also for Amiga, and my memories merge in a space-time continuum that unites… 501 more words
