It was set in the tropics and set in the 80's I believe. Thank you.

Not sure - maybe Worlds of Ultima: Savage Empire? It's the only Wasteland-look-a-like playing in a jungle I can think of.

You're thinking of Fountain of Dreams.

Warning: do NOT find a copy and try to play it again. It's very bad. Just look at the screenshots and ask yourself, "Remember when?" and then go back to playing good games.

"NotAngela"
"NotVargas"
"NotHellRazor"

That gave me a good laugh. I don't remember that game at all, but will have to read up on it some more.

Yeah, they tried to make a sequel to wasteland, I think they had issues wrestling the rights away. Ive read that article before awhile back, IIRC it still supposed to be set in the same world setting as wasteland.

And there was also this insanity using the same engine.

How do I not remember any of these? I was certainly gaming in those years, and PC/C64 exclusively, too. The big titles I remember playing at the time were Starflight 2, the Monkey Island games, Command HQ, Civilization, Knights of Legend, Countdown, Centurion: Defender of Rome, some late era Infocom, and Sim City.

Don't feel uncool. It's hard to remember a time without internet, but ... it made a huge difference that the only way to find out about games was to walk to the electronics store ("video game stores" didn't even exist!) and look at a few boxes on a wall. If you were rich maybe you subscribed to a snail magazine that talked mostly about stand-up arcade games! but also mentioned home computers sometimes. I certainly never heard of Escape From Hell until a few years ago.

It was certainly a silver lining in this case. Dragon Wars was another one I don't really recall from this time and was surprised to learn about years later.

Same here. Dragon Wars and Stonekeep were both news to me!

Stonekeep is one that I have oddly specific memories of. I never played it, but I distinctly remember being in the game section of Tower Records in Boston, looking at the box, and my friends and I lamenting that our respective computers weren't powerful enough to play it. I also remember it sitting directly next to a game called The Horde, which "starred" Kirk Cameron and looked absolutely abysmal (though I've been told subsequently was actually pretty decent).
