Reminisce about those old games and dedicated gaming hardware

Need the name of a Commodore PET game

Postby Columbo on Thu Feb 27, 2014 1:40 pm

There was a game that my kids used to play on my 4032 PET a couple of decades ago. They played this game for hours on end and I am trying to find a copy of it but I cannot, for the life of me, remember the name of the game. It was a little stick man and you had to make him run across from one side of the screen to the other without getting hit by these little blocks that were falling down from the top of the screen. Are there any old PET users around that remember this game and remember the name of it?

Hmm...I can't remember that one.

I remember Viscount Electronics, the store that I bought my System 80 from in 1981, had a Commodore PET 2001 there at the time. As a demo it was running this program which contained a stick man/robot type character. I seem to remember it getting in an elevator now and again but that's about all I can remember. I wish I knew what that game/demo was? I do remember thinking it looked really cool and noting the graphics were way better than the System 80 (mind you, the price tag for the PET was way higher too!). It looked all very high tech with it's calculator keys and built in tape deck even though, by 1981, it was a relic.

Is there anything in here that may jog your memory? Its an interesting site... I never had a PET, though I do recall many a simple game like this (staple 80's early gaming and all that) :lol:
