Throwback Thursday – Commodore 64 games (M.U.L.E.)

We finish up this week’s Throwback Thursday with a look at a vintage Commodore 64 video game that had me convinced I could be a stock market tycoon.  We already looked at Impossible Mission and Blue Max, and now we finish up with M.U.L.E.MULE_Menu

You cannot mess with me when it comes to M.U.L.E.  I was a freaking master at that game and there was no stopping me.  I had my strategy down and I don’t care who got what benefits when the ship stopped by and supplied us.  I was going to stick you with property you didn’t want by retreating from the bid line at the last second.

I would always capture that Wampus for some extra money right before my turn ended.

AND, I was sure to hoard all the energy and not sell you any.

So snag that Mountain Wampus, get paid and let’s hit the pub!

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
