The Argos Expedition


Rowsdower70

Recommended Posts

I have been searching my noggin AND Google for a while now trying to figure out the name of a game I really loved as a teen, and I finally put the right terms in Google to find it!  (That's the good news)

The bad news is, there's VERY little information about this gem.   I remembered it was educational (It was actually made my Children's Television Workshop and CBS), and you explored space searching for artifacts.   That was about all I could vividly remember.

Here's a few screenshots I did find:

(some screens)

And YouTube only had the opening theme (which is just awesome, all hail the SID)



I'm hoping I'm going to win a copy of this on eBay and pass it along to one of you talented folks to make a proper video for this really neat game.

Its in AMAZING shape!  (Too bad I dont have a C-64)

Which one of our talented YouTubers wants a free copy of Argos Expedition?   All I ask is a review since there's none on YouTube at the moment.

That's really cool, and very  nice shape.  I have a C64 and disk drive, but have no idea on the youtube aspect.  Hopefully, someone else can step up and do this for you, because I'd love to see what this game is about. 

You're still more than welcome to play it until someone steps up!

NICE!!!

 

Disk Only i guess and rather obscure here in UK?

 

I'd never heard of the game prior to this and was a huge C64 fan.

 

Yet again, Atari I.O scratching that Retro 'itch' so many others have failed to reach.

 

 

Really appreciate this being featured.

Looking online it appears that there WAS a European release, but I have no idea how many were made. 

 

I'd guess it wouldn't be quite as popular being that Children's Television Workshop was an American TV thing.
