Any chance to run it on today's Mac?

I bet you can find an Apple II emulator on the internet and download the disk images, but I can't tell you for sure. I'd use Google and search for it.

It looks like it is available; I had not heard of this game before. Apple II emulation is available through many different emulators. I think the best (by far) is Virtual II. Follow this link to download:

You will then need rom images from an Apple II, a google search should help you to locate them. Then from within the program access
Help>Great Apple II Links>Apple II Software (Azimov Archives)
I then used the search feature in 10.4 to search and indeed found and downloaded the disk images. Is it a good game? I hope this helps.:)

Wow - I just ran the game; it is interesting to see the old bit-mapped (?maybe shape table) flickering graphics and try to guess what the programmer was thinking you would "naturally" do next. This one has a pretty ambitous interface for the Apple II platform. Anyone who wants the disk images can PM me their email to save the download search through the Azimov Archives.

The game works fine with Virutal II, BTW.

Hey Bob-- can you send me the disk images?
