    Most on here are too young to even know what that was. And. For a lot of us older ones, it was the first PC we owned. (I actually had an Apple clone – a Franklin 1200)

    Releasing in early 2018, and suggested retail price of £69.99, it comes with 64 pre-installed games from the era, such as California Games, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Paradroid and Impossible Mission.

    I really liked "Silent Service" on the Commodore 128 I had.

    I had something like this, the computer was under the keyboard all built in and the cat jumped up on the keyboard and peed all over it. Computers don't like cat pee.

    I used to play a game called Transport Tycoon. I loved it.

    Now they have Open TTD and another one, can't play them, I tried, but couldn't get back into it. Don't know why. All the annoying things it can't do perhaps, back then there was no choice.
