Winter Games

Postby TomTom » Mon Feb 12, 2018 2:09 am

In keeping with the current Winter Olympic Games, I am reminded of one of my favorite old C64 games - Epyx "Winter Games", from 1985. It was later ported to several popular home computers and video game consoles of the 1980s. Winter Games was Epyx's best-selling Commodore game as of late 1987.

The Accolade game, "Winter Challenge", for DOS in 1991, was even better, however, and IMO is still very playable. And you can download and play it free from GamesNostalgia.com, or play it online, without downloading at ClassicReload.com.
