Thankfully the game on PC features an Autopilot and Nav Codes.. but this is really a whole other game type... you know, these kind of games where you have to write stuff down yourself.. I never actually played either so i am starting with TM1 and guess ill just let me be surprised

Speaking of old C64 games, anyone remember Echelon, from Accolade?

I had that one. The instructions specifically said to say "Fire" or "Launch" but it turned out any noise would cause you to fire. Never wound up playing it though; was to busy with Maniac Mansion, the Epyx "Games", Test Drive, Killed Until Dead, Archon, Aliens, and Nemesis the Warlock. Man I could sit here for the next hour and list shit... Way of the Exploding Fist, Karateka, Zak McKracken, Knight Games, The Pawn....

Good times.

Whoo, been a while since these came out.
I did play the first one, Mean Streets, way, way back in the day on my C64. I found it pretty fun for the time, but man did the flight segments suck. C64 was not a very good platform for flight simulations, although some did work pretty well (mostly from Microprose), so the sequences where you had to fly your hover car were a real pain. Never did get to play the sequels, since they were never released on my two computer platforms of choice at the time (first C64/C128 and then Amiga), and it was a few years later before I finally got a PC.
Speaking of old C64 games, anyone remember Echelon, from Accolade? The one where you wore a headset and spoke into the mic to fire weapons? Wireframe space simulator, never finished it but always meant to, was just that the flying was so stuttery I could never bring myself to.

I can't remember if I played these or not. Oh well, at $0, I can try them anyway.

Mean Streets and Martian Memorandum were both memorable games! It was also the first game I remember that played real audio from the computer's speaker. Imagine that? Real audio!

I never played these back when they came out. Are they worth the time these days?
