    Ah, such a wasted childhood spent playing that game. Spent more time playing that than I currently do playing Black & White... ;)

    And NOW this thread is going somewhere! ;)

    I ALWAYS wanted MouseTrap. So complex and cool. But I only got to play it at my mate James' house.

    Deprived childhood, I know.

    Only a ratty plastic one. I had a metal one at one point, but it was stupidly thin, and got bent just sitting on a desk...

    In perhaps this forums most extravagant old post "uppping" to date, I present a crosspost from an old article I wrote in Debo's Star Wars Memories Spectacular thread in YJCC in February. I once had a very similar post / thread starter in this forum, but the auto-pruner munched it months ago.


    //steps up to the podium. clears throat. sips water//

    Firstly, thank-you Debo, for the opportunity to **officially** take part in this spectacular thread by recalling some of my early childhood Star Wars memories.

    Please, everyone, make yourselves comfortable, this may take some time.

    Now while I have been at these boards since 2000, it's only in the last 3 or 4 months that I've ventured from my warm safe place of The Games Forum to the wild expanses of the rest of the Jedi Council.

    I have a love of Star Wars gaming. Nineteen of my twenty-five PC games are by Lucasarts.

    Current Star Wars games under development look like this.

    Yes. Flabbergasting! Better than the movies themselves in some cases. SE Jabba, you should be quaking on your slime!

    But let me take you on a history lesson. There was a time when children on this planet knew how to make their own fun, a time when it wasn't bought for $100 a pop on CD-Rom.

    Birthday 1978, I had turned seven, and I had seen Star Wars by this point (This was well before all that "A New Hope" nonsense). Naturally my life had changed in numerous ways since that movie. Mum and Dad initially didn't want to take me, as they thought it was too scary for a six year old. Nagging and whining as only a 6 year old can do finally brought the folks around. They were concerned I would be scarred for life at the sight of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru's smouldering bodies. I of course never even noticed them. To this day I'm unsure if Dad distracted me with an offer of Tangy Fruits at the crucial moment.

    As I was saying, my life changed in many ways after that movie. But the biggest change is that I ceased longing for a huge Pink Panther stuffed toy...
    [image=http://home.att.net/~gsmeal/m01_pinkpanther_smeal.jpg]

    ...and began my lifelong obsession with Star Wars related trinkets. I think Action Figures have been reasonably well covered in the bowels of this thread, so I shall ignore them in favour of Star Wars gaming, as I've already revealed.

    Prior to my seventh birthday, Star Wars Gaming had consisted of "playing Star Wars' at playtime in school. My favourite character to be was R2. I would squat down, arms by my sides, knuckles in the dirt, rotating my head this way and that while chirping, beeping and whistling. Vader and Ben would saberfight with big sticks, and everyone else would shoot each other with their fingers, while emitting lasergun-esque "doof doof doof" sounds.

    So, yeah, birthday... I got A STAR WARS GAME. It was entitled "STAR WARS tm ESCAPE FROM DEATH STAR tm". Not "the Death Star", just "Death Star". Cool! Just look at that box! My lid was traced over so many times you could have done a charcoal rub etching of it.

    As the game blurb states;

    STAR WARS tm ESCAPE FROM DEATH STAR tm GAME
    THE EXCITING NEW STAR WARS tm GAME

    A new game of strategy featuring the stars of STAR WARS: LUKE SKYWALKER, PRINCESS LEIA, HAN SOLO and CHEWBACCA. The game has all the appeal of the movie. To escape from DEATH STAR, players may spin their way out of the trash compactor, "turn off the Tractor Beam", obtain the "secret" plans and fight their way through the enemy TIE FIGHTERS.
