Whichever character you choose determines the difficulty setting, and you have to quickly type the words that show up on screen to attack your opponent and win. I wish they had this in Public School computer class rather than Cross Country Canada….”PUT ON BELT”.

If you feel yourself so bored with nothing else to do, then by all means read the rest of the posts in our Nostalgia Blog archive. And if (and only if) you’ve read everything, then you can watch the full length video…
