30 years later

I bought my first Game Boy less than 30 years ago. It must have been in the summer of 1991 when I was in England for a language course during the summer holidays. I scraped together all my pocket money and bought with excitement the console and two games: Dynablaster and Super Mario Land.

The first one was the European version of Bomberman, which you could even play against each other, assuming two modules and the multiplayer adapter, of course. And I think that I don't really have to explain Super Mario Land. The name speaks for itself.

But I never managed to play through the entire twelve levels. No idea why. Until last night. With the last life. One less game on the pile of shame.

Where no man has gone before...

The appearance of Bladerunner on gog.com today made me slightly confused, but I am sticking on my plan, to play both Star Trek adventures. The winter is here on the calendar and maybe I will find some time over the holidays.
