Overview edit · view history
Cavalier Computer, later "Cavalier Computer Corporation", was founded approximately 1981 in San Diego, California, by high school classmates James Nitchals and Barry Printz. Under their leadership, and with contributions by other programmers, they published several well-selling games over the next few years for the Apple II platform.
Most notable among their games were Bug Attack, Microwave, and Star Thief. Bug Attack, based on the popular arcade game Centipede became the top-selling game in the nation. Microwave is generally credited as being the first game to incorporate music *during* the action of the game, rather than just in cut-scenes.
