So, how old is this? Apple II? Wow. I had no clue people actually played games on Apple II. HAHA. This sounds, frankly, like a perfect bore of a game, and I can only imagine how bad the graphics are :P

I think most people today, like myself, emulate Apple II. It's got some great older games on it, and some really tough ones too. I actually plan to write a review for the Apple II version of Archon II eventually, and it won't be pretty.

Yeah. It's emulated. I think I forgot to mention that the game appears on other systems as a port, and I'm sort of scared to play them.

It was enough of my youth, though, that I figured it was worth writing about. I can assume other people might have an NES or GameBoy game that kind of stunk in the same way, but they were still grateful to get through it. And I also suspect I get more of a bang than I should out of using save states to rip through an unfairly bad game. I just didn't realize how painful it was at the time. Thing is, it's never specifically boring. It's just way too demanding.

When I was little I used to play the C64 version at a friend's house of a morn before their parents walked us to the bus stop. I do remember only seeing a few levels, and going down those slides. I just never encountered the Apple II version in my whole youth of ignorant Apple game copying.

I actually have an Apple IIe in my front room, so if I play Apple IIe games it's more likely to be on the proper machine (though emulation is in some ways still more convenient). I've never played Miner 2049er, but I have a bunch of copied games on disc that include a number of other classics (and more dubious "classics" that warrant air quotes).

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
