  1. Wow! These take me back and Boulderdash 2 was one of my all time favourites! Great game play and fun theme music. Love the podcasts, i used to get Zapp 64 and i think it was that magazine that had the “type up” that would allow me to play all the music from Rambo First Blood Part 2 (which was a great game too). My wife bought me a C64 mini last year and it works pretty well. I got rid of my old 64 through lack of space so the mini is perfect (well, its near perfect 😁).

  2. Boulderdash is a classic series of games, no argument from us there! Rambo had ace music, yes, but we reserve judgement on the game until we play it again :-). Glad you’re enjoying the podcast!
