The most ancient of all Star Wars games!


Recommended Posts

Okay, about the same time I was born, an increadible piece of technology came out: The fat mac home computer. A little after that, another modle came out that was in colour and allowed people to play games and other educational software. Then AOL arrose and sent out thousands of free disks, one of which included many great, ancient games, like Tank, and Silicone Volleyball. Among these games was the great (Bumbadabum!) Star Wars Trivia game. Designed by some guy I don't know, it asks several questions, including who the bounty hunter is that Leiah impersonates and a few dozen others. Did anyone else ever play that trivia game, and if so, did they ever get the answers to it? I was driven mad trying to figure out what they were!

I dunno. The old Mac Passed away recently- or the moniter did, at any rate, so I can't find who made the trivia game in the first place. I think it was made sometime around '92, though, as I have said. However, it was pre-internet, when AOL was still experimenting with ow to annoy us and spell check wondered what the internet was...

The oldest game I remember is Star Wars (A New Hope) for the NES. I could never get too far. The game started as Luke in the Dune Sea, driving the landspeeder around, looking for stuff.

What's the NES? Nintendo something something.... Is the game you're thinking anything like the Indaina Jones game series for the Game Boy?

Tofu, I hope you are j/k or I would be very shocked. I don't know if it was for the gameboy or not, but it was definetly for the NES. I know there was an ESB and ROJ for SNES, but that was much later on.

No, its the first Nintendo system marketed in America. The original 'Nintendo', followed by the Super NES. The N64 system did not come until later.

Tofu, I am shocked and appalled. The NES was a kickass system (the first one I had). It was so freaken sweet, with tons of sweet games.

 

Ranting in old person voice:

And back in my day, we had only TWO action buttons, not like you fancy kids with their four buttons on the controller, four more on top, and one on the back thrown in for good measure. And another thing. We didn't have these fancy smancy analog sticks. We had one good old directional pad. But I see kids these days with TWO analog sticks, to control the CAMERA ACTION! Gosh, kids today...

Dude, give me a break- the only video gaming system I have besides a PC is a PS2 with one game (DDR) that my family got all of about two months ago. My parents dislike any and all video game systems because apparently they will keep their children inside and sitting on their arses all day instead of going outside to run around in circles to get some exercise. Consecuentially we stay inside and read.

Yeah, my parents never liked games either. When I first got NES, my dad probably played it more than me. He was addicted to Mario and Duck Hunt. Then he got mad at himself for being so addicted. I think that's why they hated the games so much.

Ah. I can just see what would happen with an abusive parent that beat their children

 

Father (while hitting self): Dammit, stop playing these stupid games! Go out and get some exercise!

 

Father (Now crying): I don't wanna! Mario is too much fun!

 

(Proceeds to beat self while crying) But no, for a long time Star Wars trivia was the most advanced Star wars game in the market for me. None of you ever have/had those ancient Macintosh computers or the AOL disks with all the games? Dang, we got the stuff in Cuba on a military base- I'd think that you guys would get it!

WOOO HOO!

Old school games rock!

And the NES system realy did kick arse!

Nintendo have setup a legacy!

Outside of Starwars, The Zelda series carves up!

1st, on the NES, then another relaeso on the SNES!

Then N64's 2 Zelda releases were great and now...

OMG, Windwaker is good, but...

Zelda the Twilight Princess looks absolutely increadable!

Now that that is off my chest, Old School PC 3D starwars games like The Xwing series rocked:

X-Wing, A-Wing, B-Wing etc! Oh, and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter ruled aswell!

X-wing I'm familiar with. Were there actually games called B-wing and A-wing? 8O

 

No, however there was the "B-Wing" expansion for the original X-Wing game, disk version. It was later added into the full CD version

Yes, they were expansions not individual games!

I still got the Floppys!

Ah I loved those games and Dark forces etc!

Ah the golden gaming era of the 90's!

Still gotta love those early classics!

I think you will find the trivia game wasnt the oldest!

Correct me if I am mistaken, but was not ANH made for NES in the 80's?

I played a Star Wars arcade like game on my Atari 130. It was the

Atari 130 version of the arcade death star trench game. Early or mid 1980s'ish.

 

I also have enjoyed on the same machine, "Rescue on Fractalis" which was set in the Star Wars universe. ...somehow.

 

You children playing with that NES thingamajig. Mere infants.....

 

 

Anyone have one older than that? :P Gets his sundial and Aztec calendar ready..... :D

I can't tell you how much we laughed on the set to have Alec Guinness in a scene with a big, furry dog that's flying a space ship. ~ Mark Hamill
