Description

In a show of corporate pettiness, your target in this game is Apple Computers' manufacturing base. Steve Jobs was prepared for this seemingly-unlikely occurrence, and has a fleet of fighters out to shoot you down. Be careful to stay within the earth's atmosphere, and use your 35 bombs and 60 lasers wisely, dropping bombs on the structures and shooting down the enemy fleet. After the plant is destroyed the game loops. It was written in BASIC, and all graphics in the game are ASCII characters.

Development

While it seems impossible to believe that stodgy old IBM would create a program like this, it appears as if they did. The programming style and presentation conventions match that of all other IBM-released BASIC programs of the time.

It was probably meant to be IBM internal-use only, but was leaked.
