Haunted Hill

With all the hubub about DRM and digital distribution of games, it’s real easy to forget that some platforms have been using the concept for DECADES.  One such platform was the Commodore 64, a system very near and dear to my heart.  And as such, I’d like to present a game that is similarly dear to me, as it’s one of the first games I ever played, Haunted Hill for the Commodore 64!

Written by George Richardson for Merlin’s Associates, its a simple Centipede style game released as a shareware title in 1983. But, as you’ll find out, it’s more than just that.

Chris "Sledge" Douglas here, and I write for Prixel Derp, my blog about all things retro gaming and computing related. I'm a lifelong gamer who grew up in the Atari 2600 / Intellivision days, matured through the NES / SNES era, and am still going today! In my videos and articles, I try to talk about the stuff that has seemed to go by the wayside. And unlike "caustic critics" I like to at least try to get some enjoyment from what I play.
