    Wizz Ball on the C64/128
    In hindsight I should have posted my Facebook status as: "I've blown the head gasket on my 1997 XR3i" rather than "I've just buggered a 14 year old escort".
    The police still haven't seen the funny side, my lap top's been confiscated and the wife has gone off to her mum's.

    Toe Jam and Earl on Sega Mega Drive. I have revisited the game by using an sega mega drive emulator and it's still very enjoyable.

    Are we talking about Mobile games only? I was too addictive to Speedy Ninja. All you have to do is jump in that game. But it's too fast to play in my new mobile. So, I uninstalled it.

    I used to be so addictive to Minesweeper and FreeCell from Windows 7. Actually, I am still.

    Sorry for the big list. Obviously there are others which I cannot remember so maybe they weren't as good as the ones I listed. Geez this list makes me feel like I am a nerd I do remember playing games as a 7/8 year old on the VZ200 / 300 then the System 80, then the Apple IIe and Dick Smith Compatible The CAT.

    Enjoy your Christmas and New Year!!!

    Rescue raiders and Karateka were a couple of my Apple favs along with a few others listed above that even got my kids hooked and condemned to IT type careers.

    There are so many! I have to keep them off my phone because I find that I always want to play them and not do what I am supposed to be doing. Zuma is one of my favorites, Chuzzle for PC is also addicting! Not to mention a bunch of the ones mentioned above.

    I'm addicted to the Microsoft Hearts Game. The other opponents are named as "West, North and East". And your name is same as your user name of your Computer. So I set my computer's user name as "South".

    It's a blast from the past. I know I shouldn't have, but downloaded it too.

    Nothing like playing it on the old Commodore 64 with Joystick though.

    Wolfenstein(DOS), Nitemare 3D, Outpost 1 (first time I heard of Nanotech), Star Wars Racer (insane speed kick on Windows 98/ME that rivals what I see sometimes today on games with systems running millions times more graphic processing power)
