Summary

A fun game to write and to play!

The Good

I found your website recently and thought I would join.

Marshal Linder and I wrote this game back in 1984 while working for IBM. We wrote it during off hours and submitted through the employee submissions program. From what I recall, it was one of only seven games accepted by IBM. We had a blast during those days!

The Bad

Having to keep the core program under 64K in order to fit into the PC Jr's memory. Those were the days ...

The Bottom Line

A game ahead of it's time. Now it's an oldie but goldie for some! 8)
