04:21 pm - VIRTUAL APPLE II
Were you the proud owner of an Apple II, IIe or IIgs back in the day? Got an itching to play OREGON TRAIL again? Or maybe the original LODE RUNNER? Or WINTER GAMES?

Check out VIRTUAL APPLE II... they've got almost every Apple II game ever made, ready to play in your browser (works best in Firefox). You even have to "switch disks" occasionally. Bliss!

Okay... there was a game I played one time on a buddy's computer... you had to make your way through a house, each level was a separate room, and the stuff was enormous compared to you and trying to kill you. It was either for the Apple IIe or Commodore 64...

Figured if anyone would be able to identify the game from that description it'd be you.

Man, I have no idea... that could be a lot of things.

By "stuff", do you mean the furniture and things like that, they were trying to kill you? Were you miniaturized?

Exactly. So through the kitchen you had to get up onto the counters, then work your way to get... something. I remember the kitchen and bathroom levels...

Hmmm. I *vaguely* remember it, but no details are popping into my head.

I *do* remember that. It was sort of a "Burgertime" clone...

We had an Apple II, but no retail games for it! I had to program my own. ;)

Yes, but does it go to the kernel with the 3D0G command? We'll see
