Or maybe not. When all is said and done, they're just old toys. Nothing to get all precious over. It's supposed to be fun... :wink:

Having sold my The Lucky Dime Caper for $800, which I picked up in in the middle 90s for GBP 9.00 (at Makro), I'd say so too. Excellent platform game btw.

I agree, but when you've heard for the 10000th time the usual '8 bit games are crap, you lot are all fat receding hairline geeks' from the same person you start to get quite wound up and fed up about it.

Loads of colourful screens to get through, I remember it being fiendishly difficicult, especially the nasties that chased your little rocket man around the caves. But I remember the picture of the rocket ship on one of the screenshots on the inlay that gave it the 'one more go' factor until I eventually managed to find the same screen and complete the game!
Caves of Doom was a 1.99 classic. I remember editing a fair few rooms to make it much easier to play the game ! Great price and a classic old game. Good shout !
