Welcome to a sister article to In The Games Corner that is about computer games but with a different spin. I have been playing computer games from a very young age and I find that some games when I think of them are attached to very strong memories. So, I thought it would be fun to share memories that I have attached to some of these games as there are a few. I wanted to call this feature Memory Card because a lot of my memories that i have strongly are around the Playstation 1 and there will be a few around that particular card. Today we take a look at Tomba!
When you first got a Playstation 1 there was a demo CD that came with it that had a variety of games on it and one of the games that was the demo was a game called Tomba! Which in the United Kingdom I am sure was called Tombi because that is how I remember it. In the demo version you were given the first level of the game and it was so fun. The way that you interacted with the levels and that there were a front and background that you could interact with made it a really different experience from other games that were available and I played that demo version quite a lot.
It was so fun to play the one level and I never really thought about playing the game in full as I played games like Crash Bandicoot a lot that it always skipped my mind. We used to have a Blockbuster nearby that we would go to every weekend and rent out different games and one day I saw this game was available and wanted to give it a try.
It was such a fun game, there was so much to love about it, there was always a fun little challenge to go on and so much to explore. It was also silly which also made it great and the theme tune that came with it was very addictive. I would love to play it again for nostalgic reasons.
