Does the Title sounds familiar to you?
No, it is not a movie quote, it is actually from the great game Impossible Mission which appeared on your screen in 1984 and originally first was released on the Commodore 64 and later for the most famous other Homecomputers of that time like Amstrad CPC, Sinclair ZX, Apple II and much more.
the story of the game, is that the evil Dr. Elvin Atombender hides somewhere in a Bunker of a Secret Base where our Hero (we play a secret Agent) needs access to.
to gain access we have collect punch cards which can be hidden everywhere (like between Desks, Printers, PCs, Lamps etc).
4 right Cards are “one” Letter of the Main Password. Using a Telephone in the Game lets you know if you have already a collection of cards right or not..to make the game more difficult there are robots which either follow you or just go their routine (depending on their programming).
One Hint: turn the punch cards sometimes, if you see they look together like a geometric pattern, you are on the right way
if you dont manage to solve the game within 6 Hours realtime, you dont make it.
Oh yes..the famous line “Stay a While..Stay forever” greets you at Starting the Game and was at this time one of the cleanest synthesized Voices on the Commodore 64 ever played, not to forget the animation of our Hero was for that time also very smooth and realistic.
this great retro remake of this game was done by the hungarian Coder Krisztián Tóth.
