Samuel Sterns and the Leader are the same character; therefore, Samuel Sterns should be deleted.

Actually, it looks like it said "Fantastic Four" on the floppy, but it's definitely the same game: http://www.ebay.com/itm/FANTASTIC-FOUR-video-game-Commodore-64-Computer-/140739167899?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item20c4b5469b
 
"Fantastic Four" should probably be an alias for the real entry anyway....

One of last generation's most underappreciated titles, if you ask me...

When you're 13, every cent you have counts. Case in point:

The only thing I have to talk about today is that I am saving money to buy the Nintendo game "Batman, "Ironsword" or "Super Mario Bros. 3." Right now I have $53.58. I need $54.74 to buy "Batman" from an ordering place. That is all I have to say.

As it turns out, I actually went with IronSword: Wizards & Warriors II when the time came (check out the byline in that link, by the way). Yep...the one I would realize about eight years later had Fabio on the cover.

Cool game, though -- I distinctly remember borrowing $24 from Mom to buy it at the Collierville Wal-Mart, and then beating it in four days. I even was able to crack its password code system to figure out how to get more lives for later levels.  Unfortunately,  I didn't write much about the game, other than to mention that I traded it to a friend:

I can't wait to get home. I have temporarily traded "Ironsword" and "Tetris" to Matt Lofton for "Wizards and Warriors" and "The Adventures of Lolo." I want to get home soon to play them. Good-bye.

Fortunately, I did have quite a bit to say about Wizards & Warriors (again...byline). In fact, I think it qualifies as my first videogame review ever -- well, preview anyway.

So...that's next time. But for the time being, enjoy the awesome cheese that is this IronSword commercial.  

 
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I would eventually rent (and beat in a weekend) Batman, and Super Mario Bros. 3 wouldn't actually be released for a while, as I recall.

NEXT TIME: What got in my way of "solving" Wizards & Warriors? Would I succeed?...

MB: Thanks! Right there with you on the whole "writing in cursive thing"...
 
Diamond: Awesome pic! I think my favorite part is the Etonic shoebox. Do they even make that brand anymore? 
 
Jazz: Thanks! Though your phrasing is particularly ominous...
 
organicalistic_: I warned you! :-)  But he makes good points.
