What's the deal with these awards shows?Do these people even deserve awards?What we need is an Awards Award Show,to give out awards for the best awards.Frankly I don't see anything in the Metroplex worth awarding.I think they should have an anti award show,get everyone together who has ever won an award,and take them back.Then of course you would have to sit through the unacceptance speeches.

86... yeah, that was the first year of our awards, about three months into the life of this website. Last year we had hundreds and hundreds and hundreds, and this year I'm sure we'll have even more.

It's cute that you remember the exact number though. Thanks for reading!

Although technically impressive, Tunnel Runner's simplistic gameplay won't win over many gamers. Older games that rely on fancy 3D effects don't tend to age well. Like a first-person Pac-man, Tunnel Runner's challenge is to escape from a maze while avoiding wandering heads with huge fangs. The illusion of movement is smooth and convincing, and navigating hallways is surprisingly quick and easy. The "heads" are impressively large and scale nicely. Sound cues indicate when they are approaching, which adds a bit of suspense. Unfortunately, having to constantly check your position on the map screen (by holding the button) is a real chore. The first few four stages are easy, but once you reach the "blind" mazes, the difficulty goes through the roof. Tunnel Runner may have gotten by on sheer novelty value in 1983, but in retrospect, its shallow gameplay is not very fun.
Recommended variation: 2
1 player
Tunnel Runner (CBS 1983)

hey pablo, i dont recall akkolyte being put on the show on the 18th. your comment is the first ive heard about it. perhaps you tried to access our myspace, which we are really bad about checking (sorry all). you (or whoever set this show up) should drop me a line at my own myspace, which i check regularly, so this can be cleared up. please.
