Fans update The Goonies' original PC game for Windows and Linux

New, 13 comments

The Goonies, the 1985 pre-teen exploitation adventure flick now fondly remembered by many people over 40, was one of the first summer flicks to get a video game adaptation in the same year it released. That game, originally made by Datasoft, has been updated for Windows and Linux with new graphics and sound.

The fans who updated the original — they call themselves the "Sloth Team" — have also added levels to the side-scrolling, action puzzle game. The download checks in at under 20MB, and can be accessed here.

If you were born after 1985 or, worse, never saw The Goonies, this clip reacquaints you with one of the film's more colorful characters, Chunk, portrayed by Jeff Cohen.
