Probably the first retro-collection ever foisted upon the buying public, Golden Oldies is a collection of 4 classic computer games (well, 3 computer games and an adaptation of an electronic video game.) Play Eliza, Conway's Life, Crowther's Adventure, or Al Alcorn's Pong. All 4 games are liberal adaptations- there is no standard Eliza, and this versions seems to lack compared to others. Pong is an ASCII rendition of the game (and includes a remake with color!) Life, however, includes various pre-formed populations, including the infamous glider-gun that figures prominently in the book "Hackers" by Steven Levy.
