Have you ever had the feeling that you got into something at the wrong time? For me, that was the Dan Dare experience. As a kid, I had Dan Dare II: Mekon’s Revenge, an exciting but overly difficult shoot-em-up and as I was told repeatedly, a game that just didn’t compare to the original platform adventure.
Virgin Interactive – Commodore 64
But any further attempts to get into Dan Dare proved fruitless, as the C64 market had wound down and the original couldn’t be found, and the Eagle comics in which he originated had recently been discontinued.
