[OFF] Old Apple II Game
Date: 06.05.02 03:02 (Sun, 05 May 2002 19:02:36 -0700)
From: Mr. Weasel Willits
Years and years ago I played a game on an Apple II where you designed a car
and you could test it. does anyone know where I can find the code or like a
rom or whatever of this game (even a modern version would suffice) so I can
play it?

Thanks,

Sounds like something you could do in RB, the graphics couldn't have been
very sophisticated...

Speaking of old apple II games, I wish there was a re-make of the original
Oregon trail. I spent countless hours in my elementary school computer lab
playing that.

Try emulation.net

They have emulators, ROMs and software for loads of machines, including
the Apple II, Sinclair Spectrum, BBC, Commodore, Tandy etc.

I use an Apple ][ emulator called Catakig, which is freeware. I'm able
to play the very first computer game I played, Olympic Decathlon, for
the Apple ][ very nicely on my G3 PB. Coincidentally, Olympic Decathlon
was distributed by a young and small software company, called
Microsoft...

Catakig is available from:

I remember playing lots of MECC games on the Apple IIGS we had in our computer
lab, before they replaced them with PCs :(

There was a Mac remake (of the original version of Oregon Trail) that was sold
for awhile a long time aro. I think I have the demo version somewhere I can send
you. Contact me off list.
