old apple IIe game i'm looking for...

ok, we all know the games on those old green screen mac's, number muchers and oregon trail, etc, i know you all love these i did too.

i remember this one game that came up in a nostalgic talk with friends, and we couldn't put a name to it.

the concept of the game was growing plants, like i remember you had to grow a watermelon plant and alter the light variables and water variables... and let them grow....

argh, if anyone knows this game or has screenshots... please reply! i know you know what i'm talking about.

ARGH! i totally know what you're talking about...

but i have no idea what the name of it is...

my favorite ][e/IIe (i never know which name is correct) was Resilon- the game where the stuff fell and bounced around the screen, you were the tank that had to shoot it.

Shoot, I'm also drawing a blank on that one - I remember playing it too.

My favorite IIe game was Arctic Fox. A 3D tank sim, very awesome.

I loved Oregon Trail... and what was the game that you were a fish, and you had to make a choice of what fish to eat, and there were otters, and bigger fish and fishermen... that game was fun...

EDIT: Its Odell Lake

I loved the Apple IIe! My grandma brought one home from the school she worked at. I use to play Oregon Trail, Number Munchers, Lemonade Stand, and Odell Lake.

Anyway, I think I know what you're talking about, but I have no idea what it's called.

There was another game I use to play of which I don't remember the name. It was one or two player, and had little robots that went across a platform, and then lowered to another platform. I don't recall what allowed you to move the certain number of spaces, though.

Loved Autoduel as well.

My all time favorite was Telengard.

The old infocom games were great as well.

Leather Godesses of Phobos was hilarious and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy got me my first crush.

I still have my old apple and a bunch of games for it. I don't remember ever playing the one you mention, though.

I still dig on Snooper Troopers.

I think you probably mean www.virtualapple.org

There's also Wikipedia's List of Apple II Games.


Lemonade Stand?!? Growing educational plants?!? Number Munchers?!?

Good grief. Didn't you guys play any real games??

On our school Apple IIe computers we used to play proper classics like:
  • Lode Runner
  • Castle Wofenstein
  • Beyond Castle Wolfenstein
  • Drol
  • Dino Eggs
  • Hard Hat Mack
  • Karateka
  • Super Bunny
and more.

The answer of the plant simulator program is...

Lunar Greenhouse. One of my favs as a kid growing up in the early 90s...along with Odell Lake.

Cheers!
