This is actually the game I rate as the worst of all time. ET on the 2600 has nothing on the flaky platforming here. Climb 1 pixel above the top of a ladder = fall down and die.

One of those odd games I got given for Christmas one year that I spent many hours struggling to complete, never getting to the end of the final room. Looking at the screencaps isn't refreshing my memory at all well so it's one that's gotten a little hazy over the years. It wasn't brilliant but must had had something about it for me to load it up many a time.

Aha! At last! I had this game on a floppy disc back in the '80s. It was buggy and would crash, so I never got to actually play it. The opening chords would ring, and then my guy would fall through the floor. The weirdest part of Usher? The "game over" screen, and it's cryptic message:

"The real Earl of Usher is Spider-Man."

What the hell is that?! Does ANYBODY know what that was supposed to mean?
