Sprite Castle 023: Labyrinth

023David Bowie (as Jareth, the Goblin King in Labyrinth) said, “Everything I’ve done, I’ve done for you.” In honor of David Bowie and this wonderful movie that so many of us grew up loving in the 1980s, I decided to shuffle things around and bump Lucasfilm Games’ 1986 game LABYRINTH: THE COMPUTER GAME to the top of the list. I also take some unwarranted pot shots at PC-88 users for no particular reason. I’m sorry, PC-88 people. Come back!
