C64 Month: R is for ROCKSTAR ATE MY HAMSTER!on August 21, 2016 at 4:13 am
To celebrate August being C64 Month, we’re writing about a different Commodore 64 game every day! Start from the beginning here!
OK yes this is technically more of a (boo, hiss) Spectrum game than a Commodore 64 one but I played this little gem of a game a lot on the old breadbin so I might as well justify that time by making a blog post!
You see, there really is no such thing as bad publicity, and getting your star’s mug on the front page of the local paper is huge for your business. So getting your name in the paper means that you sell more records, climb up the charts and have Hollywood bigwigs knocking on the door desperate to direct your next music video.
It’s all hilariously dated now (hey, remember buying music? Ah, good times) but there’s an addictive quality to it all and it’s fun seeing the inner workings of the music industry being parodied like this.
