Pleins gaz by Froggy Software

Brutal Deluxe Software, in partnership with Jean-Louis Le Breton (CEO of Froggy Software) and Richard Soberka (programmer, author of Zephyr), is happy to announce the release of the arcade game Pleins gaz for the Apple II.

This color HGR arcade game was released by Froggy Software in late 1986. As the company shut its doors shortly after, the game was barely distributed.

Version 1.2 presented here runs under ProDOS and is hard disk drive installable. The game runs on all Apple II with 128KB of RAM.

Together, in 2016, we have decided to release the game as software were distributed during the golden years of the Apple II: zip lock bag, manual, and floppy disk with label.

We auction the first three issues, one after the other. Those are signed by Jean-Louis Le Breton and Richard Soberka.

AppleIIGSMarc posted to comp.sys.apple2 about a game he’s working on. Looks good!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share with you a small preview of a game I’ve been working on. It’s a lo-res, vertically scrolling shooter that will run on any 48k Apple II. Yes, the graphics are extremely blocky and a bit ugly, but I thought it’d be a fun way to learn 6502 assembly on the Apple II. It’s not quite ready for release, but when it’s done I’ll make it available to anyone interested.

Oh, and if you watch the video, I recommend keeping the size small as it’s easier on the eyes. I know this isn’t Game of the Year material, so please be kind! :)

The GEnie Apple II RoundTables at Mac GUI Vault


Poof! The GEnie is out of the bottle in time for KansasFest 2016 as Mac GUI Vault now holds the Apple II GEnie and Delphi software and RoundTable archives. Both of these online services were central to the Apple II world and were used by thousands of Apple II subscribers in the 1980s and 90s.

Visit the GEnie page to start browsing

The GEnie discussion RoundTables, A2 and A2Pro, are now online. Reading these archives gives one a more complete view of the Apple II world of the 1990s and early 2000s, and forms an interesting parallel to the discussions in the Usenet newsgroups.

Furthermore, the software libraries of GEnie and Delphi are also online at Mac GUI Vault and come complete with their original text descriptions and comments.
