Are there any playing tips for BC II?  I can't get into that game because it's so damn hard!  You have to go fast and have lightning reflexes or Grog will win because you took too long.  

 

BTW If you really like BC II the ADAM version has two extra mountains in it.

I absolutely loved that game!  I was just looking earlier this week to find a copy!   I really like the basic games..  BC's quest for Tires, Loderunner, Tapper and games like that.  Real classics!

Grog's Revenge - yes, I heard of that one.  Never played it though. 

Played them both *A LOT* on MSX.

Grog's revenge is a beautiful game - but extremely hard. :-(

Heres how the original MSX version looks like: http://www.lazzeri.o...SX/IMG_9229.JPG

It seems that the comics live on through the grandchildren and their spouses, so the rights don't seem to have been transferred to some anonymous IP hoarder.


No we know who who hoarders are. I really hate this mentality of I am the great grand son's illegitimate great grand son so pay me'z money for happy birthday shit

I had this on C64... loved the shit out of it... couldn't believe that such an obscure license was used. Obscure to me at least... BC comics were only printed in the newspaper!

Seeing a BC game was like seeing a Hi & Lois game!!!

I play(ed) and love both games on the Commodore 64.  The first game is on my wish-list of games I want to port to the TI-99/4A if I ever have the time and can switch my brain back from consumption to production.
