I was talking with a couple of folk recently about old games. Two games came up in particularthat wl remembered from the in box extras. Both were C64 RPG’s
First had a space setting. Most of the screenshots showed a top down view of a stick man for planetside stuff, but a 3D view for space combat.
The one thing we all remembered was that the box came with a some card cut outs to make your own models of some in game ships. This was a game that, at the time, I wanted but could not find.
The second one (which I did own at the time) was a more traditional rpg. The game showed your character as a stick figure while overland, but the view switched to 1st person in the dungeons.
The main points for this second game were a paper map, that came with stick-on labels for the in game towns and dungeons. So as you found them, you had to put the stickers on the map to remind yourself where they are.
Other things I remember:
You could rob the towns store-keepers, as long as you could fight your way out after.
If you killed a monster you could cut it into food (but sometimes it would make you sick),
there were a bunch of casinos that had mini games to boost your cash.
Do these sound familiar to anyone?
