related page: game - 'Chasm' http://www.abc.net.au/gameon/chasm

I'm afraid I just can't get past the kookaburra. Go to the related page link to see the game.

I googled for more views of this amazing place in Spain:


So, who's up for a little hiking??

related page: Chasm

What I admire about this game is the sparseness of the sound. It's not loud and rawkish (except perhaps around about the zillionth time of hearing that bird laugh) I like that most of the time we just hear the sound of water and the platypus' footsteps on the trail. The occasional gentle music on the mouth-organ is nice too

Oh, dear, MEF, you're WAY behind. Now it's Play Station 2 that's all the rage. Nintendo is old stuff. I'm told "Game Cube is the only Nintendo product that's up and running other than GameBoy Advanced and GameBoy Advanced SP" by the BrownBoy.

The same BrownBoy was watching me play Chasm and wants to know how to find it again. It might be a little slow for him but who knows? Maybe he'll fix the pipes and Chasmtown will be saved!

I realize that a truly dedicated 'gamer' would get either an X-Box or PS II system; I just thought that lizard could 10X the 'gaming' experience from even an Nintendo platform (which can now be had for about $0.25 CAD) than from the freebees on the net.

I could do that if I were allowed to play games.

But even though I'm not allowed to play it, I very much enjoyed the Chasm game. I liked the gentle music and the puzzle solving that was just a little bit difficult but not beyond me. What I really liked was discovering that amazing trail in Spain.

Maybe if we ever get around to following the Santiago di Compestella trail, we will take the opportunity to go further south into Spain to see the Camino del Rey - I'm not sure that I have the nerve to walk on it, even if it is open.

At great personal expense I traveled to Greece to seek advice at the Oracle of Delphi - it wasn't easy, but, you will be glad to know, that according to the Oracle - you ARE allowed to play games!!!

My name is llizard and I am a gameaholic. It has been 23 hours that I have been game-free....

Ummm, I think the Oracle is mistaken. Perhaps the other llizard is the one who is allowed to play games. (as far as I know, there is at least one other llizard on the net)
