Description of Golden Oldies Volume 1: Computer Software Classics

If you haven't play Golden Oldies Volume 1: Computer Software Classics already, go ahead and download it now! Published in 1985 by Electronic Arts, Inc., Software Toolworks, Inc., The, Golden Oldies Volume 1: Computer Software Classics features adventure, simulation in a compilation / shovelware genre.

Description at MobyGames says it all about this quirky piece of software gaming history - made back when Software Toolworks was still called "Software Library" :)

Probably the first retro-collection ever foisted upon the buying public, [Golden Oldies is a] collection of 4 classic computer games (well, 3 computer games and an adaptation of an electronic video game.) Play Eliza, Conway's Life, Crowther's Adventure, or Al Alcorn's Pong. All 4 games are liberal adaptations- there is no standard Eliza, and this versions seems to lack compared to others.

Pong is an ASCII rendition of the game (and includes a remake with color!) Life, however, includes various pre-formed populations, including the infamous glider-gun that figures prominently in the book "Hackers" by Steven Levy." The games are not as fun as their originals (except Adventure, which is exactly the same game I remember playing), but they are good enough to give you a good sense of nostalgia... and a peek of how gaming looked in 1984 :)

Recommended if you collect oldies, but probably won't be of interest to a casual gamer.
