Reality Glitch Nostalgia Trip: Leisure Suit Larry

September 23, 2016

Trying out the age protection questions at the start of Leisure Suit Larry on the Amiga for laughs (or not). No game play this time, just a nostalgia trip.

Loading up this game for the first time when I was 10 was an event. I was completely baffled by the bright colours, cheesy music and the weird fella in the white suit chasing a blow up doll. Not that I had any idea what a blow up doll actually was. All I knew was that this was a puzzle adventure game, and I loved them.

The questions at the beginning to get into the game (to prove you were old enough to play) proved just as challenging as the game itself and the puzzles contained within. I have great memories of sitting for ages trying to get these right, occasionally asking my mum random questions to see if she knew any answers that could help me out, for example “who is Joan Collins?”, or “what’s a prophylactic?”.

Good times.

Thanks for watching!

Reality Glitch Plays: Pinball Dreams and Lemmings

September 21, 2016

Pinball Dreams

The only Pinball game I’ve ever owned and played on my Amiga. Also the only Pinball game I’ve ever played full stop, on a computer and in reality.

Weirdly I mention two You Tube peeps in this video, and they’re both awesome!

Lemmings

Playing some Lemmings, the sarcasm flows nicely in this one, as does my apparent lack of ability to speak clearly or loudly. Making these videos really is an eye opener.

Anyway, classic Lemmings from back in the day, was played at home (on the Amiga) and in school (on the Acorn), just on official break times of course…

Thanks for watching!
