My favorites were Epyx's Destroyer, Impossible Mission (synthesized voice saying Stay Awhile.....stay FOREVER! Never could beat it), Bruce Lee, Congo Bongo, Ultima, Zork, Bump n Jump, F-15 Strike Eagle, Superbowl Sunday, H.E.R.O., Alien....the list goes on and on. Fun times!

I remember my dad subscribing to Run magazine (C-64's flagship mag) and entering the code from the back pages into the system to build apps and games. Heck, we even had that cassette drive where you fast forwarded to the point on the cassette, typed "load such and such" and then Run.
Alien, is that the one with drop ship with circles, mazes, defending your marines with aliens attacks, etc.? If so, then I loved that drop ship theme music. I wished I could find a HQ audio of it. I had to rip it from a video.

Nah. This was the one with the layout of the Nostromo form the first movie. You had to get the crew to work together to survive with very little weapons. I remember everyone dying off and I had Ripley, Jones that cat and Brett in the emergency shuttle, ready to take off and the self destruct sequence going and the ships computer, Mother, wouldn't let us take off because something alive was still on board. Very scary game esp. when you came face to face with the Alien.
