Name the game

Reminisce about those old games and dedicated gaming hardware

Name the game

I'm trying to prove I'm a not a bot to register on the german c64 wiki. Can't find the answer to their
Turing test though:

Wie heißt das bekannte Mario-Bros-ähnliche Spiel "UND" wie heißt die zweite Hauptfigur im Zweispielermodus?
Richtige Antwort, "x" ersetzen: "Gxxxx Gxxxx Sxxxxxx UND Mxxxx"

What is the name of the well known Mario-Bros-like game "AND" what is the name of the second main character
in two player mode?
Correct answer, replace "x": "Gxxxx Gxxxx Sxxxxxx AND Mxxxx"

The game could be The Great Giana Sisters, since Gxxxx Gxxxx Sxxxxxx would correspond to Great Giana Sisters. The name of the second main character is Maria.

I feel like high-fiving myself for that.. I hope I'm right!

I didn't actually get around to high-fiving myself, but I did manage to revive a laptop battery from 1986! Nearly recovered 80% capacity.. I guess that's good enough!

I wonder if there will be issues with the answer to the question, since it is a German site. Do they have alternate spelling for that game? Or did they just use the English title? We shall find out...

This may be Great Giana Sisters, but not sure.

When you say "revive"... What did you do? Some kind of reconditioning procedure?

I'll make a thread about it, but I've become quite good at reconditioning, reviving, repacking, etc old batteries.

This one was a 1.8Ah 9.6V NiCd battery from a IBM 5140. Taking into consideration charging efficiency, it is now 1.3Ah, but with a high self discharge of nearly 50% a month. Still working on it.
