Nostalgia at Electrobit City

I Love Games
Image Source:

I love games.

My closet is stuffed full of board games, card games, dice games, strategy games – you name it, I’ve probably played it.

I love puzzle games the most – having to figure out what to do or where to go next.

Probably why I love puzzle hunts in SL – using area search is too easy.

I want to have to work for it.

When I was a kid, my favorite game was ‘Electronic Detective.’

I played it for hours on end.

I like video games, but I suck at shooter-type games.

By the time I’ve figured out what is going on and where I need to go, I’m dead.

My children, of course, find this hilarious.

(I just remind them that I own all the top scores in ‘Just Dance.’ 😛 )

When I saw Caitlin Tobias’ post about Electrobit City, I wanted to go check it out for myself.

ElectrobitCityInvadersI was never good at Super Mario, but I enjoyed playing.

So I teleported over and snooped around.

It asks you for permission to use experience tools, which I gave.

However, a lot of the region is still under development, so not everything works.

I did have a lot of fun exploring.

I love the invaders hovering over the landing area.

Looking at some of these places brings back so many memories .

Hours spent hunched in front of the console, trying to beat my brother’s high score.

I wandered around the area until I found a teleport pad and stepped on it.

He gives you a bit of background on the story and sends you on your way.

It’s a really cute area, with huge trees and little blocks you can jump up and hit.

Just to give you an idea of the scale, I’m in this photo.  😀

As I was exploring, I ended up in another area filled with giant mushroom trees and doors.

There didn’t seem to be anywhere to go from there, so I went back to the previous area.

I started climbing and ran into what I thought was another NPC.

Except I ended up ‘dead’ and had to start all over.  -.-

It had a dance floor, a disco ball, and laser lights.

It also had some arcade games scattered around the perimeter, along with a few cute characters.

Like these guys. 🙂

He looks a little tired – overworked, maybe?

It was a lot of fun just wandering around and looking everything.

It brought back so many memories of my childhood, sitting around playing video games with my siblings and my dad.

ElectrobitCityCastleAreaAfter I made it back to the first game area, I took a good look around to see if I could figure out what to do next.

From a distance, I could see where I needed to go/jump to get to the castle up high (which I’d missed when looking around the first time).

Fly is disabled, so I managed to jump my way up to the waterfall area.

Where I died.


Well, at least I know what direction to head next time. :/

Once the whole game/area is up and running, it looks like it will be a lot of fun.

So if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic, head on over to Electrobit City.

Just be careful where you step!

Electrobit City – ‘You’ve died, and have been thrown from this reality! ‘

This looks interesting – definitely going to have to remember to check it out!

Cait's World

Those of you following me and my adventures on this blog know I am a terrible gamer. I just cannot play video games that require moving, shooting, running and escaping even if my real life would depend on it.
I do like how it all looks though and I guess that’s my problem: I love to look around and admire the graphics, the colours and everything and then before I have found the right button to push it is in most cases like the subject of this blogpost ‘You’ve died, and have been thrown from this reality!‘ .
That’s okay with me, I will stick to Candy Crush Soda and Mahjong. Also fun….ahem.
