A Conversation for Monty Python CD-ROM Games

Another Monty Python game

Post 1


There is another Monty Python game not mentioned here - a platform game released in about 1990, as I remember playing it on my 386. I've still got it somewhere, so it wasn't all a dream.

I think it's just called Monty Python's Flying Circus, but I'm not sure - perhaps somebody bought it legally and has a box for it??! Anyway, it has much amusing animation Terry G style, and the main character is Gumby, who has his brains removed at the start of the game and spends the rest of the game collecting spam in various guises (himself, his head on a fish, his head on a bird, his head on a pogo stick, etc...)

It may be a bit older than the rest of the games on this page but it is absolutely brilliant none the less.

I found this text at GameFAQs.com. The game which you described was originally developed for the Commodore 64; apparently, you are not losing your mind (too bad).

P.S. I could find no box pictures or screenshots, though FAQ's are available from the site on request.

There is an even older Monty Python game for the Commodore 64 which almost completely text. Here is the opening screen shot:
