Kayleigh's Retro Isolation

One good thing that has come from this whole Covid malarkey is the opportunity to introduce Kayleigh to a selection of 126 retro games which I grew up playing during my childhood and young adult years.  "Kayleigh's Retro Isolation" came to an end a few weeks ago, and we only touched a small selection of my games, but she enjoyed it so much.  It's refreshing to know that even though she is from a generation that is used to playing games with fancy graphics on our PlayStation 4 and 5, she can still enjoy those retro classics with their primitive graphics (but awesome gameplay!)  

I look forward to introducing her to many more games from my collection (just without the lockdown).

PLAYING THE GAME

Grim tidings from Jellystone Park, folks!  Yogi's little pal Boo-Boo has been bearnapped by a mean hunter, planning to make some loot by selling him to a circus.  Boo-Boo is locked in a cage near the hunter's cabin...  somewhere in Jellystone.  Only Boo-Boo's fearless and faithful friend Yogi can save him.
