Gotta love Rick Dangerous and Jet Set Willy. Unless you got caught jumping into the screen in the wrong place and got hit by that Flamingo head that should have been a foot but for copyright.

Am I rambling or just writing a stream of consciousness? Ooh shiny things.....

there's a very good reason as to why I've forgotten most of these characters. Bonk especially sucked.

Being a young kid back in 1990, I thought Bonk was awesome. Sadly, when I revisited the game, I started to realize how boring the game was. I suppose you're right.

.... to know the name of the name that I loved so much as a kid: Magical Flying Hat Turbo Adventure!!!

Awesome awesome game.

I used to play it on my neighbour's Megadrive, who had bought the game in Hong Kong. It didnt come with an english title on the front or in the menu (I think), so I never knew the name. Definately one of the most fun 16-bit platformers of all time!

Why did Monty die so fast
Aren't three lives enough to last
The hazards that confront a mole
In his search for precious coal

Don't let Monty die in vain
Press a key and try again

How's that for memory. "Wanted Monty mole." Used to play it with my dad back in 84
