I knuckled down and played a ton of this game. I remember it being more difficult, but I guess the first time I played it was about 26-odd years ago. I find that with this game, like many others, it is difficult to show in a screenshot just how entertaining the game is.
I have no idea if I am staying on schedule, but there should be another post soon.
Recently, I read some other blogs and playthroughs that deal with this game. My intention is not to go too deep, sometimes what you think is the most important thing is the most unimportant.
