Christmas Gifts For The Apple II Fan

Happy Holidays everyone! As I write this, it's the day after Christmas. I was fairly busy and could not devote a lot of time to a game this month. However, there is always Apple II news floating around, so here are some gift ideas for you Apple II fans, courtesy of A2-Central.com (http://www.a2central.com). Yes, it's a little late but these gifts can be given for birthday presents or even for Christmas of next year.

As a history fan, I have loved reading the Apple II history site Apple II History (apple2history.org). Now the owner / creator of the site, Dr. Steven Weyhrich, is taking his site (and other information) into print format. Please read the A2-Central site for more info on the project.

I've written about text adventures occasionally in RTM. For those without access to an Apple II computer or emulator, here's a chance to PLAY some old text adventures on your IOS device. I'm curious how the games are setup as text adventures require a lot of typing. The iPhone screen is small so that may be difficult though I can see the iPad working out better.

See you next month!
