It was a wasted day all round, really. I wasted hours trying to do some food shopping... I made three trips out for the bus, but the first two were hopeless as the buses weren't running to the timetable and I missed them. It's an hour between buses on Sundays, so the time between buses wasn't much use for anything.
I've done a little bit of gaming today, though. Nothing for the book, just some iOS gaming... oh, and a blast on the arcade version of Alien Syndrome.
|Ugh! Look at that ugly bugger!|
Playing the arcade version now, I realise just what a great conversion the Commodore 64 version was. I can tell you this because I can reach the exact same spot in the arcade version as I could in the C64 game! It's a really faithful version, with the only thing really missing being the Options you could pick up as extra weapons. Other than that, it's all there, although there's some odd scrolling which makes the game slightly more difficult.
So, it's been an enjoyable day for that part of it. Wonder if I could get hold of Tim Rogers to ask him about the game...?
