    Kia-Ora also had a catchy tune.

    Um Bongo was the drink you wanted though. Or Five Alive.

    I used to just wander around enjoying the atmosphere -- and then feel scared when the 'evil brother' came after me. The Amstrad version also looked really nice with some excellent music. A game that managed to draw you into another world.

    Now I know why I didn't buy it. I remember typing in a few listings when I first got a computer and I didn't enjoy the experience.

    I've always been interested in computer/console tech, but the coding side of things is beyond me. I admire programmers but I have no interest in indulging in that sort of thing. It is interesting to see what clever coders managed to do with limited hardware -- and sometimes it's interesting to read their explanations -- but actual coding isn't something I'd ever be good at or enjoy.

    I still think it's awesome how people code games, because I know I'd never be able to grasp it. It's just something that I'd never be good at because I have no passion for mathematical stuff. I was always good at English, Geography, Art, Humanities, because they interest me far more than maths.

    Thank god for people who love the mathematical side of things though, because we wouldn't have games if they didn't create computer programming and use it to put all sorts of games together
