    Fired up my Mac Plus again recently and started fiddling w/ some games. Grabbed the camera and took some "screenshots" - 40 or so. Have a look.

    Interesting to note that the Mac's high res (512x342 on a 9" screen is pretty dense) mono screen forced pixel artistry that looks most unique.

    Some of these games look stunning.

    Have a look in the link above. I hope this brings back some memories for some folks.

    Very cool; definitely brought back memories for me. I recently fired up my Mac SE and played Shufflepuck Cafe. I loved that game.

    I remember my favorite game for my Macintosh Plus was a Breakout clone called Brickles, I loved that game. That game is really what made me start getting into collecting Classic Macintosh.

    Shufflepuck was awsome! Now I have to go find my dad's old powerbook 100 and hope it still works.

    reminiscing...F16 on a Mac Plus

    Thanks for the memories...my fave was an F16 simulator I ran off a floppy bootdisk. Things smoothed out when I got the 20MB hard drive that sat under the Plus...lemme see, that was about 1988 I think.
    Like my old Six Million Dollar Man lunchbox and Ken Dryden and Guy Lafleur hockey cards, I wish I had it back.
