It's weird: I am 35, and our school was all-Apple II, but we didn't have
that game. Actually we didn't have any games. We learned AppleWorks,
PrintShop, and BASIC. All the game-playing was done at home.
FlightSim, the Epyx olympic series, H2G2, games we wrote ourselves in
BASIC, Pole Position, etc. ..... although I was addicted to a
sword-fighting game called Swashbuckler. Anyone remember that?
