From yesterday’s article about the Commodore 64 platformer Tower of Terror - here’s the bit I couldn’t get past. It looks like a simple jump the the right, but every time you hit your head on the ceiling and fall straight down. Either I’m a total idiot, or the game is literally impossible. Both possibilities seems probable.
From Super Naxat Open, a Super Famicom golf game with centaur caddies and crying princesses (and some golf).
At the big VGJunk site today: a Commodore 64 game that is perhaps the crystallization of the notion of all 8-bit home computer platformers. Also it’s got a giant toddler skeleton and I think it might be literally impossible. It’s called The Tower of Terror and you can read all about it here!
