    Merlin's Castle - text adventure on the BBC. We used to play it at primary school. Recently found it and an emulator, and managed to complete it! - good times!

    Castle of Dr. Brain. Now that was a classic. Also The Island of Dr. Brain.

    I also remember a random little game I found called Gods. Anyone remember that little platform game?

    Gods was amazing - had that on my Acorn Archimedes! Also loved Mad Professor, Bug Hunter in Space and Interdictor (flight sim)

    So that we can best help you find your way around. If you are a student looking for helpful information about what happens in IT support in a school (as a future career perhaps) then we can give you certain pointers, if you are a member of a support team and you are specialising in certain areas, eg desktop support, then we can tell you to check certain threads out.

    Either way, the more we know about what your needs are the more your fellow members can tell you what worked for them.

    Oh ... welcome to EduGeek. :-)

    Re: I remember when....

    I can't believe I've read through damn near 12 pages and not heard a mention of Sam and Max!!!!
    Although kudos to whoever it was who mentioned Dizzy. Absolutely cracking games.
    As for Doom, I want that first level made into a paintball arena Who's with me?

    Re: I remember when....

    Hey that would be cool doing that - I must have played the first level of Doom a million times.

    I remember Sam & Max Hit the Road - cool game with some really off the wall humour.

    I wonder if we could set up a multiplayer over JANET, Maybe Even Dungeon Keeper II, "You Have Taken over an Enemy Room"

    Re: I remember when....

    It's sad that I know all the secret rooms and stuff from Doom off by heart now. And I loved Doom2's sly dig at Wolf3D and Keen in the secret levels. All set out like Wolf3D with Nazis walking about and in the end after facing the Cyberdemon (yep, i remember their names too!) you got to see Commander Keen hanging

    Was a bit disappointed in Doom3 that the imps ran and jumped instead of just firing fireballs and scratching you. Actually all doom3 monsters disappointed me just because I wanted them to look like the D and D2 ones but with better shading :P

    Re: I remember when....

    I'm with you MK-2. A doom styled paintball area would be awesome... minus the acid pit of course.

    For me one of the best games I used to play as a kid was a game called Hi-Octane. It was an awesome racing game with hovercrafts and weapons. It was the first cd-rom game I ever copies onto disk (back when you could do that with ease).

    Also another one of my favorite old time games was Prehistorik. Thats and The Lost vikings. Both were quality platformers.
