Who else has fond memories of the old games on Sky? I mean, they all used to be free to play, well-made, and AWESOMELY ADDICTIVE!



The likes of Beehive Bedlam, Corporal Cluck, Fathom/Fathom 2, King Tutti and Bumble Tumble?

It used to be the case that, in the inevitable half hour where there was nothing but crap on the television, you'd press the little interactive button and fire up some King Tutti and shriek as you avoided some little pixel-mummies, or some Fathom 2 to try (very futilely, might I add) to get more than like, five centimetres without crashing.

Now, the same little magic button that was once a portal to awesome gaming is now just a little rubber phony sitting on your remote, as once you press it to play some games, you're presented with crap licensed games that let you play for twelve seconds before DEMANDING you pay them twenty gold doubloons...

Yes, I remember.

You need to stop living in the past.

That's a fairly cynical response to a practice which invokes retrospective joy in people. I've got a smile on my face just remembering how infuriated my dad got by Beehive Bedlam's repetitive music.

Broders, ye'r a legend! Pity I can't get my fix elsewhere though. It's not as fun unless I'm infuriating others!

Ah, loved that game! Nostalgia.

I also loved doing the darts game on PlayJam but it wasn't long until they started charging extortionate prices

There were guards and you had to rescue the baby bees! My whole family used to play it together; it was tense!
