A suicidal baby game on the ZX?! Yes it happened lol

A game where babies drug themselves, fall down lift shafts and electrocute themselves?!, yes it exists and would be a shocker for todays over the top PC world if it was released today (same deal with Mr. Wong's Loopy Laundry) but quite the norm for the awesome 80's

God I love the 80's. I wish I had been born a decade earlier so I would have been able to experience it a little more myself, it kind of passed by unnoticed on child-me The only thing from the 80's that really got through to me at the time was the quirky music. And the Atari 2600 Jr. And the cartoons. I mean come on, Transformers G1, He-man, Dungeon's & Dragons, the Real Ghostbusters, MASK, G.I. Joe, Inspector Gadget... Classics that had me glued to the screen.

"You are allowed a certain amount of baby deaths before the nurse gets fired". See, even that statement is so 80's.

The 90's was basically more 80's but with less synth.

Best 2 decades to grow up in where games were just that,...games, and there were no cancel culture making our lives miserable, sigh.


Right off to let these little critters tumble down more lift shafts

Of course, the trend to create a "simulator" for every topic imaginable. I'm not keeping track of every low effort asset flip that is put out there either to be honest.

One of the reasons that games today fail so hard is that they (TV and movies to) are trying way too hard to be politically correct in every manageable way. Blood, gore and sex is fine though.

Love the Britishness of the industry in the 80s, stuff like Monty Mole and Manic Miner in regards to the strikes. I also remember a game in the 80s on the ZX called Mr Wino .. was hoping for a sequels like Mr Junkie or Mr Meths.

Nah, in current year sex is only okay if it's "empowering". (i.e. hetero sex is a nono unless the woman is ugly and the guy has a man bun)


Yeah there's games on the internet but that's only because it's global. If a High Street/Main Street retailer tried to sell Samantha Fox Strip Poker today it would not fly. (It's degrading to women! And she's a permanently-scarred victim because she was 16 when she was on page 3 in the Sun!)
