The friday killaway order
Aaah Friday the 13th! What relaxation, what pleasure! The day when nothing’s going wrong! I remember when I was a lot younger (around 14 that means) I’ve played the game Friday the 13th on my trusty Commodore C64 often on this special day! It grew almost to a tradition!
Though most people marked that game as being boring and dull, I think it was one of the most frightening games ever. You ran around on that 16 color crystal lake camp on the search for Jason who was decreasing your friends at the same time.
When you encountered the black man it was all just a question of the right weapon! I found that the only true weapon for defeating him was the big axe. All others like the spikes or the chainsaw were more or less useless and you were cut into pieces by Jason before you could say ‘Minced Meat’!
Aaaah, the terror, the frightning! I watched the first movie part of Friday the 13th recently and I was almost falling asleep because it wasn’t too shocking. The game however presented a very abstract form of horror … well, then like most games did on the C64 in the one way or the other!
Good that there are trustworthy C64 emulators like VICE64 or CCS64 nowadays on that you still can play all these golden classics even without the good old bread bin! From time to time it’s an enjoyable refreshment! be honest! Todays modern games are all to complex for a short minute-play!
