I think Andy Capp got me interested on pints of stout.

I remember the Andy Capp computer game; I used to have it on my Amstrad CPC. Did anyone else play this in the 1980s?

Here's a summary for the game that I've just found on the Interweb:


In this game you play the role of Andy Capp the hard drinking northern layabout from the comic strip in the British newspaper The Mirror. The main idea of the game is to keep your alchometer as full as possible while avoid being arrested for fighting various characters including your own wife. You can stop people in the street by blowing a kiss at them. When you stand next to the person you interact by either giving them an item, talking to them or beating them up.

I like to read it online each day here:

....as I'm not much for the newspaper it's printed in (in the UK).

Used to love The Gambols too, who were published in the Daily Express here in the UK.

I used to eat them a lot when I was younger. Now, they make my poo burn.

Andy Capp was probably one of the first comics I was exposed to.
Used to run in the local paper.
Andy Capp, The Phantom, Hagar, Mandrake, and a coupla other ones I canĀ“t remember, All good memories....

I have hazy memories of playing it as an impressionable youngster. I blame it for my alcoholism, sexism and tendency towards violence
