    Default First C64 game you ever played?

    What was the first ever Commodore 64 you played?

    Mine was Attack of the Mutant Camels... VERY fun game you flew around in this spacecraft and had to shoot gigantic camels

    I remember the first game I played was called Dino Eggs, an amazing game (For the time, 1983 I think) in which you had to go around saving dinos and dinosaur eggs

    Mercenary. Very nice 3d Graphics for that time, and a non-linear, open ended game. You just crashed on some alien planet and needed to find a way to repair your ship and get out of there. To add to your problems, there was a civil war going on (1 of the factions were some sort of robotic life forms ) and it's hard to appease both of them at the same time.

    The game came with a map of the planet's landmarks coordinates (since it was a huge planet). The map also had a warning to keep it in a safe place because you'd be lost without it. Still, I managed to lose that map. So I would play for hours, charting all the different locations on the planet and exploring (and sometimes destroying ) all the landmarks.

    This is still my favorite C64 game

    My first game was Jupiter Lander (or was it called Jupiter Landing?). Fun, addictive game. You had to control this spacecraft as it landed on Jupiter. Very challenging to control. You basically controlled the thrust of the ship and had to make sure it landed in correct place and slow enough. And too much thrust and you could easily lose control of the ship...

    I think mine was GORF. It was kinda like space invaders except there was additional modes with hyperspace and waves of enemies and stuff

    My first game (and also one of my favorites) was called Karateka. I was actually taking Karate classes back then, and when my parents took me to buy my first Commodore 64 I also picked up that game. It was a real cool game with a nice little story in it too

    First game I picked up was one called Gridrunner.

    I remember it came on a cartridge (And I viewed cartridges as extremely "cool" at the time).. Think of that game as Centipede shoot em up game in Space with aliens and spacecrafts and such. Gridrunner was a pretty fun game to play, and that led me to become a video gamer

    Odell Lake, I think it was packaged with my Commodore 64 when I first got it.
