    There was some things I remember from about 10 years ago, that really have been a huge impact on my Mac experience. I had a Performa 600 with 6.0.8 when I ran these:

    *AtEase (somewhat resembles the now 'simplified Finder' in Mac OS X)

    *Crystal Quest http://www.whatisthe2gs.apple2.org.za/the_fairway/game_pages/crystal_quest.html (that link is an example of the IIgs version) OH GOD!!! I JUST SAW A VERSION FOR XBOX 360!!!!! WHATTT!!!! I'M BUYING ONE NOW!!! :eek: :eek: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/c/crystalquestlivearcadexbox360/

    *Mad Maze (an awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome game!!!) http://pages.prodigy.net/rdbrownmsb/MadMaze2/ (a remake of it, you might need a PC to run it or the site might be down. wut a shame)

    *Spell Dodger (thats how I can spell now, scool wuz no yous)

    *Gizmos and Gadgets (very fun and educational game. Learned more stuff in there than i did in Physics 295)

    *Shufflepuck (simple paddle and puck game but spent hours on it)

    And I say goodbye to Macintosh Garden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macintosh_Garden) and give a warm felt thank you for providing ass-loads of abandonware that I once enjoyed. :eek:

    Anybody feel the same way about these apps/sites or would like to add onto the memories on your classic fun application?

    I have all the original install disks, manuals, and the box for a Mac IIsi. It's all for System 6.0.7 I think. Even has the tour.

    That's always fun to play with!

    Oh my God, Crystal Quest.

    I was like 6 years old.

    I also remember Shufflepuck and AtEase.

    How about Strategic Conquest and Harpoon?

    We had AtEase on our Performa 400 computer. I think my dad put a password to "protect" our ability to boot to the Finder, and then forgot what it was. Not good.

    I would like to add the games Spectre Supreme and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis to this list, since I probably spent 75% of my early Mac-using time playing them.

    Now that makes me feel old!

    My first computer was a Commodore 64 as well (hooked up to our TV). Nothing like 2 minute load times (or longer, if you used the cassette recorder).

    Oregon Trail works on my Mac. I of course have 10.3. You prolly have 10.4. But I can send u a copy (since it's abandonware) and see if it works for ya.
