Too Much Free Time

Discussion and reviews of games for NES, Intellivision, DOS, and others.


Too Much Free Time was created when I really did have too much free time, intended to be an attempt to play every video game, ever. Of course, that’s not a goal that I’m likely to accomplish, but it does give me something to aim for. I hope that by playing (and reviewing) a large number of games, including many games both old and new, I’ll be able to discern patterns and trends in video games, and communicate my findings.

You can contact me by leaving a comment here or on any relevant post, or via email.

  1. Hello!

    I have recently been looking for a game called “History Mystery”, for the Apple II.
    I have done a lot of google searching, but I’m afraid that not much comes up.
    In fact, I’m a large contributor to (user Propane13), and even most of that community has never heard of it.

    In searching, I found that you had a post about it:,2/dgb,4/dgm,103664/

    I’m really trying to figure out if this was a game that I played when I was a kid, but it’s tough to find anything. Would you be willing to let me know a bit about its gameplay? I’m guessing that some screenshots would be out of the question, but a small summary of gameplay (some rooms/puzzles) would really help me out.

    Also, you had mentioned in that post that you were willing to try to contribute them to the community. I may know some people that could help with that, if you were still interested.

    For the record, “History Mystery”, from my recent searches seems to have been a game that came with a publication called “Microzine”.

    I found this article that indicates that it was an add-on to Microzine number 18:

    As I keep digging, I’d be willing to share whatever info I can find.

    Hope this has been useful, and I hope to hear from you.
