I’m pleased to say my copy of Get Lamp has arrived this morning and I’m very much looking forward to watching it. Whilst I would imagine it will concentrate mainly on games created on the other side of the pond it would be nice to see a mention of Level 9. Snowball and the adventures of Kim Kimberly remain my fondest memories of solo text adventuring, dumpy droids, cyladders and toroidal walkways anyone?
Arfle barfle gloop?
I decided I really would like to play Snowball again so I set about trying to find a suitable emulator for the Commodore 64 and the software. After much searching, many broken links and incompatible formats I ended up opting for the Spectrum emulator ZXSP for OS X and an SNA version of Snowball. Works very nicely, I took some screenshots:-
