    Im not sure ROTT would go so well in schools! Although iirc it does have that handy feature that you press a key combo and it displays a screen shot of a DOS prompt

    Maybe not Retro enough but it is the best FPS ever made Half life.

    For those who can't wait to get back to Melee island... ScummVM :: Home is a reworked interpreter for the old games. Also does other P&C classics like Flight of the Amazon Queen, Beneath a Steel Sky (underrated IMO) etc.

    Finished monkey1 again last year. Might have to do it again. Love that game. Will try and hunt out the interview with Ron Gilbert (is that the fella?) regarding the new Monkey stuff coming out soon.

    I downloaded the special edition yesterday on Steam. It still makes me laugh. Also downloaded episode 1 of the new serialised game. Probably the best monkey game since MI2.

    I don't know it this will be in the Monkey Island remake, but it sure works in the original Atari ST (probably Amiga and PC too)....

    Let Guybrush drown when he gets thrown into the water...

    It takes 5 or 10 minutes real time and AFAIK is the only place you can actually die in MI.

    The Dizzy range was the bek I completed each and every one of them, even the one that came out on the mega drive?

    Definitely didn't work on the PC, on something like my fourth run-through of the game I got bored and left him underwater for a few hours to see what would happen. Nothing did.

    I can only vouch for the Atari ST version, at the time I CBA trying it on the other two once I'd seen it.

    It's a shame you didn't get to see it, it was funny.
