Apple ][

Apple ][

I think I've died and gone to heaven. Here is a Web site where you can play old Apple 2 games using just your Web browser.

Here are my personal favorites:
Lemonade Stand
Ultima III

It would be amusing to get a group of venture capitalists together and see how they each do at Lemonade Stand. Make them write business plans first and then score them based on actual results.

Back when I had an Apple II, I think I wasted most of my time playing Breakout.

I always hated the days when the weather report was wrong...if they re-did the product these days, it would be called Lemonade Tycoon, and you would hedge weather risk with derivatives.

I have you to thank for wasting more than an hour playing Karateka today! My favourites were Karateka, Ultima and Taipan. In fact I got Taipan running on my Palm!

What I especially love about these games is that they look and sound exactly like when I played it on an Apple IIe!

I had downloaded a version Kings Quest I that played on the windows machine and the experience wasn't exactly quite the same :P

Anyways now I have something else to look forward to when I procrastinate :P

Oh man, I forgot about Taipan. That game rocked. Time to sell some opium!

(Now that I look back on it, that was an incredibly offensive game. But fun.)

P.S. You know the secret to amassing infinite wealth, right? Just overrepay the moneylender, and you'll start earning loan shark interest rates on your deposits!
