    I was going down memory lane when I remembered one of my favorite (actually I didn't really like it all that much since I didn't get it) games.
    Anybody know the name of a computer game where you're a black cat that climbs in/out of apartment windows and then walks from one window to the other through clothing lines all while people throw things at you from open windows? when you did enter a window, I remember each one was different... in one there was a fishbowl and you could go inside and try to get some fish, in others you just walked around the room, etc.
    and for some reason I associate that game with the color purple... I'm not sure if the inside of the apartments were purple or if the outside or what but something was purple.
    Anyone know what i'm talking about?
    oh... there's also this other weird one... you're on top of an ostrich like bird and you fly and try to shoot other people in ostriches... or something like that... anyone?

    The game of the ostriches was an arcade game called 'Joust'. It was pretty fun, back then.

    Oh man, I used to go on Rampage binges all the time back when I was in grade school... I would stay up all night playing it with my friends and then we'd finally ask ourselves, 'Does this game ever end!?' and then fall asleep at like eight in the morning. I spent a fortune (for a seven-year-old) in rentals on that game.
    There need to be more games out there where you just smash things. The new versions of Rampage just aren't as much fun, I can't figure out why. Maybe I just long for the days of 8-bit graphics.

    You rented the game? I had to spend all my quarters at the arcade. Rampage is one of those games that is no fun when you play by yourself, you have to have a parter.

    I use to play a game called lost luggage, anybody remember that one?

    Joust!
    Takes me back to my misspent university days.

    Little floating platforms and the guys would materialise on each one, the hardest and quickest guys were called shadow lords.
    You had to pick the eggs up before they hatched and became more difficult oponents and the lava hand would reach out to try and drag you in if you flew too close.

    Defender was another classic.
    Crappy graphics when you think about it but I got off on the sound effects, especially when you detonated a smart bomb.

    Another I liked that also had bad graphics was Tempest, you were this thing that moved around the outside of a geometric shape and spider things came up the middle. You had to shoot them before they reached the outside wher you were.

    I am still a sucker for almost any platform game, Donkey Kong was the first game I ever got obsessed with and used to miss school to stay and play.
