This 1991 relic is the first complete version of the fishing game. It has two "worlds", the ancestors of Medium-Sized River and Ozark/Mid-South Reservoir. There are 18 species and 4 of each bait/tackle item. The "screensaver" was created in 1987 and cycles through 256 fast-moving fish. If you make a new character and all the holes seem fished out, try creating another character or use the "TORSTI" character on the disk image. The game maintains records for big fish and other angling feats.
This 1987 relic is a lo-res American football game for 0-2 players. Options include two player, one player vs. computer, and computer vs. computer; minutes per quarter; infinitely adjustable difficulty level; control a random defensive player; keyboard or joystick; and other options. Play options include bombs, going on 4th down or kicking, timeouts, etc. Fans cheer when the home team does something great or a team goes on 4th down. Extensive statistics at end of game including quarterback rating. Includes a popular bug where fans sometimes run out on the field! Computer's AI is very good; he gets more aggressive when behind and isn't afraid to throw bombs or go on 4th down. Each defensive player has a different "personality"; they don't just come after you. The disk image includes the original Scary III football game from 1984.
