Late Night Throw-back (Burgertime!)


That's right, it's Burgertime! A friend got me thinking about Apple IIc games today, and I found that there's an exhaustive list of games for the IIc listed on wikipedia (no big surprise there, actually), and as I started to scroll down, the first thing that caught my eye was Burgertime. I recognized others, but this game was definitely a classic of my childhood, this and Dig Dug!

I don't really know what else to say, except that this brought a huge smile to my face, as I suppose childhood memories are supposed to.

Oh. I thought you were having people over for Burgers. Sigh.

Burgertime is the monomyth of video games. Its also an allegory for class struggle. Spread the good word!

Oh my, the hours I spent assembling burgers in that game.

This needs to be a downloadable game for the Wii so that you can use the Wiimote to shake pepper at your opponents!

Dude... i think you can download Dig Dug for the Wii. I don't know how it is that I didn't immediately notify you when I saw this on wikipedia, but if you're curious you should go to the Apple II games page linked in this Burgertime Post and click on the page about Dig Dug. I swear, they say it's downloadable.

Also, you should check out the previous commenter's youtube video. It's pretty awesome.
