Game Finding Fail :(

The Failship...
The pic says it all...

So for the last several days, I’ve tried to track down a copy of 1973’s Star Trek (Script Game), which is different from the 1971 version I’ve already reviewed. I’ve contacted the author, but he’s not replied yet, so until he does…if he does, I have to skip that game and move onto the next one.

I then found two copies of the BASIC game, Star Trader — upon which later games like Trade Wars are based — and tried to get that game to run. Sadly, neither of them worked in multiple BASIC emulators and compilers after the last couple of evenings of trying various methods. I don’t want to spend TOO much time trying to get a game to work, so sadly, I’m going to move on and skip THAT game as well.

Thankfully, these good folks have made an excellent Apple IIe emulator for Windows, so I’m able to get Edu-Ware’s 1978 space game simply titled, Space I, to work just fine on my machine. Therefore, that will be the next game on my list that I review. I want to thank y’all for your patience, and I should have my first installment soon.
