Panicked Apples

Another quick one (it's been a good day for getting through some games!). Apple Panic is a clone of Space Panic, and similar to Lode Runner, but the game I know it as is Monsters for the BBC B. It was one of my earliest games on the Beeb (I probably still have the beautiful old AcornSoft boxed copy somewhere, and I have fond memories of it. This is basically the same game except for one thing... the speed. I know I could tinker with DosBox's settings, but I consider it a challenge attempting (and failing) to play at superhuman speed. It took a while to find the keys, but after that I was digging holes like a madman. Unfortunately, time ran out before I could actually catch a monster, but hey. Onwards!

Next up on the randometer is...Neuromancer! The graphic adventure based on the William Gibson story. I read the story many years ago at school...can't remember much about it, though. I did recently read through a blog playthrough of this game, though, so I do have a rough idea of what I need to do. Should be fun.
