OMG the number hours spent on these games would be in the hundreds.  I think I might be buying my first pc game/s in a long time.

$1.49 on the US steam store, not changing it back to save a few cents. Never heard of the games but for the price why not.

Well they're all very old games but Wings was my favourite Amiga flying game, spent hours and hours on Lords of the Rising Sun, It Came from the Desert and Defender of the Crown.  TV Sports Football was my introduction to Gridiron.

 

 

 

Worst case scenario you spend a couple of $$$ on a hour or two of trying them out lol still not bad value.

Classic Amiga games (released on other platforms as well but Amiga versions were the best)

 

 

 

They may seen simplistic now, but back in the day, I'd lose many hours on them :)

Ok a minor hijack here

 

1983-84ish computer game

 

played at school on a computer the teacher bought in as there where no computers in primary school then

 

Yellow and black screen (as in only one colour on the screen) basically a top down game flying a yellow fighter/bomber? WWII feel?

 

and i am fairly sure you had to fly over the rivers, and couldn't fly over the land as bizzarre as that sounds

 

 

 

Any ideas

 

 

 

Computer also ran the LOGO programming language, with the result a referred to the onscreen mouse cursor as a turtle for the next few years

River Raid 1/2 ? However think that was Atari 2600 only (could be wrong)
