Thanks for that link. It was a great listen, and a good story of game archaeology. Entombed is a game I hadn’t thought of in decades, but it really brings back a lot of fond memories. It came out in 1982, when I was 22, and it was the first co-op game I ever played.
And the co-op game was brilliant. You were both in the maze at the same time, and had to help each other past obstacles in order to get further in the maze. It’s been many many years, so details are hazy, but a buddy and I would spend every weekend for a while trying to excel in that game. It was so damn fun.
Of course there was also a single-player component, which I tried to get into a few times when I was by myself, and it was okay, but co-op is where that game really shined. Many many hours we spent with that game. I’m sure I still have the cartridge around here somewhere. Good times.
