Revenge of the License: Friday the 13th

Michael Crisman writes, "Yes, retro gaming fans, it’s another “Revenge of the License” column. Last week we checked out the first James Bond adventure for the home computer, A View to a Kill. Today we’re jumping into the horror genre to look at Friday the 13th. But not that one. Nooooo. As much as I love the NES Friday the 13th as one of my horrible guilty pleasures of gaming, we’re going even more old school than that; four years earlier than LJN’s 1989 abomination. Back to 1985, when Starship built a city on rock and roll, Madonna described what it was like to be a virgin, and Hall & Oates explained the method of modern love. Back to the O.G. Friday the 13th license. Back to the Commodore 64. Right…back to the column. Sorry." (Retro)
