Thud Ridge: American Aces In Nam
Thud Ridge: American Aces In Nam was released in 1988, by Three-Sixty Pacific, Inc. The premise of the game you were a Republic F-105 Thunderchief pilot known as the “Thud”. Set in Vietnam was you were to fly conventional strike and defense suppression missions.
You start out in as a Lieutenant in the “Wild Weasels” and you first mission is to get a feel of your “Thud” craft. Missions that follow vary from eliminating tankers, bombing bridges, dropping leaflets, even engaging MIGs. Your rank will advance if missions are completed.
You can see in the 3rd photo that this game used a look up code for it’s form of copy protection calling it the Flight Verification Code.
It actually uses the RED sheet of paper with black letters making it hard or impossible to photocopy. Here is also the code table in PDF format. Thud Ridge Flight Code Chart
Again thanks goes to Craig Ernster for providing the photos and information.
Monday Night Football didn’t have on disk protection but a code you have to look up. First let me know you have do wait for the game to load through about 4 or 5 intro screens before you even get to the code screen.
See the screen below with the couch looking guy. There is a Passcode on the bottom left. Look up that code on my PDF code sheet here: Monday Night Football CODE SHEET
The Passcode on this screen is 24 so you need to enter in ’59’ and the game will then load.
This is the disk for Super Breaker Plus. I have the ad on the blog here for Super Breaker. The ad was from a Magazine from the UK, so I don’t think this was ever released in the USA.
Does anyone have the magazine ad or D64 image for this?
This is another ad from a 1985 UK Commodore magazine.
For a program called SUPER-BREAKER, there was also a Super-Breaker PLUS.
I do not have either disk, but check out the ad, it contained Super Diskopy.
This ad is from a 1985 UK Commodore magazine.
It’s for DISKOPY by Arrow Micro Service.
I do not have a copy of the program, but will start looking for it now that I found an ad for it!
The release order of Commodore snap shot cartridges
1. Isepic was the first
2. Codebuster (This is the same cartridge as SnapShot 64 and Clonebusters)
3. Final Cartridge

Codebusters was renamed for a very short time to Clonebusters for Micro W.
Then for marketing reasons then name was changed to SnapShot 64.
