I’ve finally finished another library of games! Because of the hilarious and sometimes really pretty cover arts of the C64 cassettes I’ve focused on finishing this one first :) I’ve scanned every Commodore 64 game I have, a total of 144 games, well almost, when I just now finished I saw that I had missed about 10 games that probably had wondered off somewhere in the game room when I was scanning, but I’ll take care of those soon ;D
So check out all of the amazing cover arts of the C64 games I have here >>
Meanwhile, I would like to point out a few ones here that I am particularly fond of for various reasons ^_^Let’s start with Barbarian II!
I mean, just look at that actor they put in front of a camera! I don’t know if that look says “I will KILL you!” or “This is not what I had in mind…” XD
Trantor The Last Storm Trooper! Seriously?! Storm Trooper?! There were so many games back then that did everything to relate to Star Wars because it was popular.. but this guy is DEFINITELY no Storm Trooper! XD Here’s some other examples of “wannabe-Star-Wars-games”:
Star Paws and Death Star!!!
You just gotta love everything from Llamasoft and Jeff Minter! XD Revenge of the Mutant Camels actually entails everything you see on the cover in the actual game!
Not to forget Voidrunner, also from Llamasoft, with a llama and a sheep in space suits! Brilliant :D
Hysteria.. yeah, that’s exactly what the cover screams! It’s hysterical! ^_^
Monkey Magic… are those supposed to be monkeys?? I love how one of them is just biting his thigh and he doesn’t even seem to care! XD
That’s EXACTLY how I pictured a Space Hunter….
OK, this is Star Wars.. real Star Wars… you can see that it’s R2-D2 and C-3PO in the picture.. but what are those other two generic 80’s futuristic disco people doing in the background?! I do NOT remember those two from the movies…
Strider 2! I love how everything had to be so over the top on the covers back in the day! He’s got a pony tail like Van Damme, a sword on his back, a laser gun in his hand while he’s flexing his other arm and jump-kicking some poor robot!! XD
In one of my Tetris games for C64 there was this little form you could send in to win a special 4 day holiday for 2 people in Moscow!! “Tetris – the first word from Russia” hahaha XD
The Halls of the Things… What things?!?!? Either they couldn’t figure out what they programmed was supposed to look like… or it’s a way to intrigue you to buy it, just to figure out what those damn “Things” actually are… I guess we will never know..
To check out all the scans of my Commodore 64 games, go to the Commodore 64 Collection ^_^ Also accessible from the menus :D
