- 24 July 2004: Released version 1.1 of the game! Now has rudimentary
- 18 July 2004: Released version 1.0 of the game! Now has hi-score,
an ending cut-scene, and scrolling star background.
- 28 September 2003: Game is now playable! Rushed this weekend to get it ready for the 4k
Finally! I've always wanted to write a video game for the Apple IIe
that was more elaborate than a 1 frame-per-second BASIC demo.
Only 25 years too late to make a living doing this.
For those of you without an actual Apple ][, you'll have to get an emulator.
xapple2 (Linux .. best, but x86 only)
- yae (Linux
Cross platform, but has timing/sound issues)
- OSXII (MacOS X)
- Virtual ][ (MacOS X)
- DOS ApplePC 2.52b is
- Windows - You can try
Applewin. I've never used it.
- Note, you will need ROM images to use an emulator. Note, you should
own an actual Apple II, otherwise downloading ROM's is questionable legally.
You can download them
A game in progress (screenshot from actual Apple II to my bttv tv card).
I always wanted to be a video-game star.
