Tunnels of DOOOOOOM! | 12:49 pm | 4 April 2006

tunnels of doomLast week, during the after-podcast chitchat, we were talking about old video games, and I brought up that I’ve always wondered what the heck it was that my friend Katie and I played all the time in high school. I knew it was an old game even then (1986?), since it was on her family’s TI-99/4A (beige) that had been consigned to the basement for homework use. I also remembered was that it involved a dungeon, and a quest, and maybe wights or orcs… but the main thing, the thing that all this time I haven’t been able to get out of my head, was the MUSIC. I can’t really sing, but I managed to beep out the “doo-do-doo-doo-doo, DOO DOO DOO DOO,” and Chris Spruck the Awesome was able to identify it RIGHT AWAY as TUNNELS OF DOOM. The internet bows before Chris’ knowledge! Bonus: that last link points you to an emulator, so you can run the dungeon from your windows box. Schweet!
