    Hi all

    This is going to sound really bizarre. However I am Tryin to remember a game I used to play on the eMac when I was in high school. This was I would say prior to 1997 I believe. It was a game I believe a spaceship kinda game or maybe like a star wars type game with a flying ship and your killing the bad guys.

    It's bugging me this. As I just remembered it the other day and would want to know if I can play it again on my MBA. Can anyone suggest any type of games like this for the eMac possibly around that time?

    Thanks in advance

    Abz

    I wasn't on this planet in 1997, but I can tell you one thing. The eMac wasn't made until 2002. I think you mean the iMac. Anyways, I'll do some digging, and try and help you out.

    I remember when I first immigrated to earth! Mars was just too cold. Earth gravity took some getting used to, but the shorter years and days make up for it.

    Seriously though, way to make me feel old, man! I was out of the navy by 1997.

    LOL! That made me spew Club Soda all over the wall. :D

    What I actually meant was, I wasn't alive in 1997. My Mom hadn't become pregnant with me yet.

    I am thinking you may have been playing Solarian II at school?

    Man, I wasn't on this planet in 1959!

    That sounds like a line from one of Jerome Bixby's finest screen plays: "The Man From Earth."
