Spelunker was just a relief to finish, so fidgety but so nice to say "I beat that"...

 

Its one of those I still play to this day...(Nes version the best tho)

Always loved that game although I lack either the time or the dexterity or both to finish it these days. Tried for HSC but didn't make it past the Volcano despite dozens of tries. Only time I ever finished it was in the mid-90s.

Ha ha...I lack just about every thing to finish it now, I still give it a bash just for old times sake but I tend to mutter very rude words when I've fallen off that ladder for the 5th time :)

 

Still great fun just to make it anywhere in the game...

Floyd the Droid being repaired at the end of Planetfall.  Almost makes up for:

 

You drop to your knees and cradle Floyd's head in your lap. Floyd looks up at his friend with half-open eyes. 'Floyd did it ... got card. Floyd a good friend, huh?' 
Quietly, you sing Floyd's favorite song, the Ballad of the Starcrossed Miner:

O, they ruled the solar system
Near ten thousand years before
In their single starcrossed scout ships
Mining ast'roids, spinning lore.

Then one true courageous miner
Spied a spaceship from the stars
Boarded he that alien liner
Out beyond the orb of Mars.

Yes, that ship was filled with danger
Mighty monsters barred his way
Yet he solved the alien myst'ries
Mining quite a lode that day.

O, they ruled the solar system
Near ten thousand years before
'Til one brave advent'rous spirit
Brought that mighty ship to shore.

As you finish the last verse, Floyd smiles with contentment, and then his eyes close as his head rolls to one side. You sit in silence for a moment, in memory of a brave friend who gave his life so that you might live.
