|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!
Dave, you have made me a happy man with this post. I LOVED Oregon Trail. OMG OMG OMG OMG.
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.
Ah well. Was worth a shot. Thanks Dave!
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. ;)

Oh man, I love you for posting this! I spent countless hours of my youth playing Lode Runner, Choplifter and Montezuma's Revenge. Gonna try it now!
See what you made me do to poor Geoff?!?!?!

AIEEEEEE! LOVED Lode Runner!!! Geeks of the world UNITE!
Yes, but does it go to the kernel with the 3D0G command? We'll see
Oh man, that is all kinds of awesome... the hours my cousins and I burned playing Marble Madness...
