If you love Labyrinth, you should try the C64 game. It starts off as a text adventure, but then turns into a graphical action/adventure once you get into the labyrinth itself. I liked it, but I never got very far in it.
Rubik's Cube - I was hopeless at solving the cube on my own. I ended up getting a book that showed you how to solve it. I memorized the solution and could usually solve a scrambled cube in under a minute. It worked by solving the top layer, then the middle then the bottom. I can still do the first two, but I don't remember how to solve the bottom. The top and middle I can do by looking at it and seeing where the cubes need to go, but the for the bottom, it takes some complicated sequences to put everything in the right place without messing up the rest. At one time I even had the solution to Rubik's Revenge (4x4x4) memorized.
They talk about the Care Bears, but where's Rainbow Brite in this magazine?
Got to love how they put scans from catalogues alongside on the Walkman pages, did anyone have a mum who was an agent for these catalogues? Kays, Great Universal, Littlewoods...
Did you have Fraggle Rock in Arabic?
Nintendo wasn't a big thing over here, I saw a Sega Master System before I saw a NES, the Master System was actually quite a good console.
Now... where's Action Man?
Oh yes, Danger Mouse!! Also, Count Duckula, Alias the Jester and Jamie and the Magic Torch!
I remember lusting after an Atari Lynx back in the day... never got one... ah well...
And now I want to see the pages about WACADAY!! We're Wide Awake!! Oh Timmy Mallett!
Superted! The cartoon from Wales! Do you remember Bananaman?
Yes I remember the Mysterious Cities of Gold, I loved that show! And I was quite fond of Zia!
Also, Ulysses 31?
OMG Trap Door! _Don't you open that Trap Doooooooooor!_
Madonna really should have realised that pop is a young girl's game and gave up... she tries.. but doesn't succeed.
I'm wondering where the pages on Knightmare and Wind In The Willows are!
Stand By Me is an awesome boy's film.
Also, I think I have seen either an Arabic or Farsi version of the opening titles of Storybook International ("Sometimes there are tears, sometimes there is laughter... but always... a happily... ever... after...")
Flash Gordon is one of my all time favourite films... see also Battle Beyond the Stars and The Dark Crystal!
been a bigger. I hope they’re going to do a second part to this.
Fraggle Rock in Arabic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__pMMxQ2i4I
But I didnt know much of it myself. I only knew sesame street lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIwqKXZqigw
nintendo to be honest I barely saw! only once so i’m not sure why it was main focus like that.
They’re also missing the computers, ZX spectrum, Amiga and C64.
Lol! I had forgotten about wakaday, freakin Timmy Mallet
Yes, whenever someone mentions superted, I always remember Bananaman lol it’s like they’re both tied together.
Mysterious cities of gold, I kept wishing Iw as Zia because I was fond of Esteban lol!
I wouldn't worry about not being able to remember movie titles - it was 30 years ago, after all! Heck, when I was 10 I used to rent VHS tapes from the local video store where I carefully selected the movies yet I cannot remember any of the titles I rented... It's annoying because I would love to see those 'whiz kid' movies again.
It was this daft games console where every barcode would give a different fighter. So you and your friends would run around like lunatic scanning tins of baked beans and the like to see if it gave a really neat character.
Nostalgia overload. I thought I was the only one who remembered the raccoons. Used to always get excited during the intro when Cyril would play that computer game. I always preferred the sequel to short circuit, which is one of those rare times the sequel is better (opinion of course, but the answering machine medley and "I Need A Hero" gives it the bump). Saw it with my son recently, and he asked me if that was Wall-E's dad. Good Grover :) ... My kid always wants me to do that voice at story time.
In answer to all your questions, the answer is yes. Haha, you got all hyped up, awesome. Nostalgia rush ♥ A lot of it will ofc be irrelevant, you "had to be there" kinda deal. Trap Door was a claymation cartoon that was quite popular, and wasn't as dumb as most cartoons of the time.
"Madonna was good" in Lemons head "Isla bonita" is the only tune you like bet :p
La Isla bonita is my all time favourite, she had quite a lot of good ones actually, stil never thought much of her mind you, but her earlier songs were good though it seems maybe not to your taste :op
And yes this video is for those of us who were there and find relevance in all this ;o)
Danger Mouse was saturday morning TV for me over here, I enjoyed it! :oD
Oh I used to watch Count Duckula also! I get this feeling our generation was born at the best possible time :o) i'm thankful for that!
MsMadLemon 10:20 DANGER MOUSE!!! 😁 I loved watching Danger Mouse as a kid!! It used to be run on the early Nickelodeon network here in the US back in the 80s! I never missed watching both Danger Mouse and Count Duckula!!
I still love both to this day!!
Ha-ha! Brilliant Grover impression. He was always so funny in that show, Burt and Ernie were also great. I prefered Sesame Street over The Muppet Show any day, I could never get along with Kermit and Mrs Piggy. The 80's were such an innocent time of bangles and pastel colours, fun music and big shoulder pads. I miss those days, but I'm so happy I got to live through it. :)
Love your videos! and you got a contagious laugh, so I'm always laughing while watching your videos. Did you know that the "Mysterious Cities of Gold" theme was composed by Shuki Levy? who also composed the themes and soundtracks almost for every major cartoon in the '80, '90. I would love to hear an amiga version by you!
Very nice. I really enjoyed this!
Oh yes, Short Circuit should have been there..! "Uh oh.. Grasshopper disassembled. Reassemble, Stephanie. Reassemble!". A funny and emotional scene, where he learns about death.. A few of the other movies I noticed in the mag, that I love: 10. Das Boot, 14. Stand by Me, 23. Airplane (wacky!), 27. Die Hard, 58. Ferris Bueller's Day Off, 64. A Fish Called Wanda. I wonder why the magazine counted up. Usually top-lists count down? Huh..
I have the original Rubik's Cube, which was a gift from a friend. Real molded plastic all round, with Rubik's logo. Not that knock-off crap with stickers. I'm not worthy of it, though.. :) I can assemble one side. That is all my brain allows, haha..
Ooh, Fraggle Rock and The Muppet Show. Man, that was great entertainment. One of my favorite characters was 'Beakers', the scientists assistant. He sounded so cute when he was scared. "Mimimimimimi..!!!".. Lol..
Ah, 17:13 & 18:15, bottom of page - "Journey - Don't Stop Believing". Awesome sing-along number. I'll never get tired of that! Haha, Weekend at Bernie's - I adore that kind of humor!!
Yeah, that music was only meant to be used in the game, actually. And many people (including me, at some point) wrongfully think it's composed by Allister Brimble. It's not, it's done by Firefox of Phenomena. Not sure of his real name. Some Swede, hehe.. There is an interesting story about this tune is in the scrolltext in 'Music Dream II'. Here, I did a quick capture of the important bit (1 minute clip): https://youtu.be/GNAA1xSWF6I
I don't think it's from 'Planet of the Apes' or '2001: A Space Odyssey', but I should check both to be sure. I seem to remember it was an "average unimportant" (lol) movie.
I have to get my hands on 'Tremors' to see if it rings a bell. It should. :o)
Apes, dark caves.... it's not planet of the apes is it? lol wild guess!
Yes it's Kevin Bacon in Tremors, it came on TV a lot here so it probably did there back then too. I remember it well because It kept coming on TV (we had cable) and I watched it each time lol
I must watch it again.
The blob really rings a bell, maybe i've seen it but I'm not linking it with the name.
Also guess what i've discovered.. I do remember it on that music disk but maybe this is another reason why this music was in my memory, it's also the music in Full Contact.. my brother used to play this waaay back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAItHeHOcpE
I just found out now when someone mentioned it in the comments, I thought "wtf" and went to investigate lol
Yes, I know what you mean by not being told the title etc.. I have a vague movie scene playing in my head, that I remember from my childhood, but that's all I have to go on. I have yet to identify the movie. I try regularly. I remember something with apes, a dark cave, and the classical "Also Sprach Zarathustra" playing. Lol, don't know what the hell this is. I hope I find it some day. ^_^
'Tremors'.. It's funny, I see the cover in my head. Some big worm or snake thing munching through the underground dirt, right? And I think Kevin Bacon was in it. I don't really remember the movie itself. But I may have seen it, since I remember those details, hehe. :)
This got me thinking of 'The Blob'. I'm pretty sure it was an 80's movie. It was about some living slimy organism coming in through grates and the sewer. Attacking, and possibly killing I think (lol) a lot of people. It may have been a cheasy B movie, don't remember the quality of the story or the effects. But I remember it as being very entertaining.. :o)
great video it really brought me back! back in the day i had a really good guide to solving a Rubiks cube. i got pretty good at doing it without the book over time. I used to be able to solve it in around an hour or so - but i tried recently and failed dismally. its mostly muscle memory and repetition and "what to do" in certain scenarios.
I absolutely love Short Circuit 1 and 2! I was just watching Short Circuit 2 on vhs recently...lol. I love growing up as an 80's kid. I wouldn't trade that experience for anything in the world! Great videos as always! ❤️
yet another relaxing vid. on the sunday evening for me.
*labyrinth was a biutiful movie indeed. with David Bowie. very good Jim Henson production that was. should see that again once.
*never could fix that rubik cube. hate them. gues i am stupid.
*where do i got my viemmaster.
*thundercats no. i am more from the He-man period. must have skeletor somewhere (incomplete unfortunaly)
*freggels cool. also great Jim Henson piece.
*nintendo. not really. but i got the controlpad though, but it's the usb version at vesalia allong with the amiga future mag. 127.
*speak and spell leave that for the 8-bit guy.
* ah there's He-man.
*haha Teddy Ruxpin creapy. i always wanted to have a functional Chucky. that would be creapy.
*sesame street. love it. we had our own bigbird though. not yellowbird. ours was blue your favorit kind of blue. his name is Pino.
yeah, the muppet-show was a bit, the elder version. with a lot of double jokes hihi. (also Jim Henson RIP)
*mystery city's of gold. i did not new that one. but obviously all out of the same chinese/japanese studio. like familie Robinson , Natalie, and many others. do you remember that educational animation with that white hairy caracter with the same long nose. as the bad guys from Seabert.
*Pogs. we called that Flippo's. the marbles were to dangerous overhere i gues.
* brewsters million. with Richard Proyer and Gene Wilder. do you remember Chakie and the chocolate factory with the umpa-loempa's. i like Johnny Depp. but i always think theres just one chocalate factory movie. o yeah the glass-elevator.
i dont know why i dont know short circuit, i know war games from the same director. must watch short circuit definately one time.
what a nice flickthrough again.
if this is a montly outcomming magazine or something like that, you could do this more often if you want my oppinion. because this is just the tip of the iceberg.
thank you for this great moment Madija. thumb-up!!!
BTW reading magazines, i got your moment in the amiga future magazine 127 home also. mine was also written 127 on the disk.
Wow! That's a great magazine. I think I'll get one, it'll be the perfect "coffee table book" I think. Something that guests will LOVE to casually flick through... and so will I! ;)
Also love the Cities of Gold theme song. We had that series here (in it's original french iteration, called "Les Mystérieuses Cités d'Or"). It's a legendary song and EVERYONE around my age knows it. I've even seen people start chanting it in bars at karaoke and stuff! lol
I think it's seriously worth getting this magazine if you're an 80s person, the link to it is in the description by the way :o)
I hope they bring out another one with more 80s stuff.
Mysterious cities of gold, Love it! <3 actually I have the soundtrack, I liked the music throughout the cartoon itself too
Thanks Maddi... I kind of needed this. I've bin down all day, not quite sure why. Anyway thank you for bringing me out of it.
And since you didn't find Short Circuit, I went over to my DVD collection and snapped these for you...
I agree! I dont get why. whoever claimed copyrighted material on this video has monopolised my entire video, which is my effort, just for a minute of their content which gets me, and all I did was promote it!
I can’t find an official place where I can buy Mysterious cities of gold nor it’s soundtrack.
I actually have the full cities of gold soundtrack somewhere, I liked a lot of the tunes and background tunes in the episodes itself. I must dig that out! I got the urge to watch Weekend at Bernie's again lol though I can't remember weekend at Bernie's 2?
i'm a bit like that too with regards to music, I dont stick to a certain artist or group for that long, Madonna and a Spanish band Mecano were the very few who I stuck to and liked a few of their songs. but it's always just individual songs that grabbed me. Duran Duran - Save a prayer, I like that :oD and a couple of others by them. i'm glad I still have all the record albums and singles :o)
I hope they another bookazine with more 80s stuff!
To the east is the entrance area to the vault. In order to open it, you have to work out how to open all of the doors at once. One of the instructions will open a door without closing any. This must be the last key you press. Now, find a way to open a door that closes only the doors you will open later. And continue until all of the doors are open.
One solution is "NILBOG". (Many other solutions are possible; this one has the advantage of spelling something interesting when reversed.) Each key opens a door while not closing any of the doors you have already opened.
Pushing the Mainentance button (M), will teleport you to caves underneath the castle. When you leave this area, it will open up a new door to the east of the entrance room.
At the very first intersection, to the right is a room. A chest in that room contains the candelabrum needed to solve quest 3.
Continuing down the corridor into the caverns, you will come to a room containing a chest in the middle of the room and a Spark spell containstly bashing down onto it. You can empty the chest by timing you steps correctly. Be careful, as the Spark spell seems to be a master level spark.
The next room and then north leads to where Angela is trapped. She will join your party automatically and you can return her to town to solve quest 6.
Further west and then back east, and then to the end of the passage is a teleporter that returns you to the room south of where you found Angela.
If you instead go further west is the lair of some cobras. You can find several cobra eggs scattered around this room.
To the south is the lair of the Queen of the Spiders. Kill her and you will find her heart. This will satisfy quest 4. There is also a teleporter here that will return you to the starting room.
