    Anyone know this old game? It was an Apple II game I think from 1985 or earlier.

    It was similar to the old game Donkey Kong but the hero went down ladders and found keys and avoided skulls and bats I think.

    Thanks

    How about that old game, when you run around inside the pyramid, and you had lamps, and monkeys would come and steal your lamp, what was it called?

    Scarab of Ra perhaps?

    thanks everyone



    Thanks I saw this list of old Apple games and thought it might have been Montezuma's Revenge. I've not heard of Magical Skull and Bats Allergy Ladder Adventure II. It definitely wasn't Lode Runner, but that was one of my favourite games, especially the first one.

    I loved Adventure Construction Kit on the Commodore and heard it was modified for the pc around 1990 but couldn't ever find it.

    The first good game I played aside from Pong was Adventure with the Sears Video Arcade System. Gauntlet at the arcade was awesome too.

    I just finished Wizardry 8 which was a good one from early Apple days too.
    Cheers everyone

    If you're reminiscing about ancient Mac games, here's a lovely repository (not suppository :p) of abandonware Mac games...

    That game was fantastic!

    Except for when those f*cking monkeys kept stealing my lamp!
