Game Covers - Space Hunter (Commodore 64)

A fun romp in space, featuring two styles of game play (3D space flight simulator, and 2D maze/map exploration).  Well worth the £1.99 which I paid for this back in the day.

"The world is starving and the only food available is in space.  You must search through 15 star systems to feed the world.  This complex 3-D simulation takes you from rookie pilot to the hero of the world...  If you're good enough!"

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 39 - Keeping The Dream Alive (M√ľnchener Freiheit)

Wow, here's a blast from the past.  I loved this song when I was younger, and completely forgot about it until hearing it on the radio earlier today. 
 
I had some serious childhood flashbacks after hearing this one again after such a long time.
 
Released in 1988, it peaked at number 14 in the UK Charts during December of that year and is apparently known as being a Christmas song due to it being released during the festive season, even though the song has no link to Christmas at all.
 
Crank up the volume and listen to that awesome orchestral sound.  It always reminds me of a bit of a mix of ELO and the stuff Paul McCartney released in the 80s.
 
Enjoy.
