Anyway, even more incredibly, some of these games have survived and been preserved on the Interwebs. Why, you can play the Thompson Twins Adventure right now if you want to! It appears to be some kind of text adventure in which you try to prevent the Thompson Twins from dying of heat stroke. Maybe you can "lay hands on Thompson Twins" to give them a health boost! Har-de-har-har. Simply incredible. I applaud the geeks who took the time to make sure these random games didn't get lost into the ether. I don't have the time to really look into this at the moment (I shouldn't even be posting right now), but I plan to get back to this at some point and play these things. For example, how awesome is the following:
The goal of 'The Shaky Game' is to drive Shakin' Stevens' car to the center of a maze while avoiding bats, who bite you.I love Shaky's line when the player dies:
OH DEAR!! a bat bit youOh, Shaky, you gotta watch out for those bats!
