This weekend I spent some time playing some Apple II classic games on my Apple IIgs. It has the most excellent Compact Flash for Apple adapter in it, so I don't have to use the old 5 1/4" floppy disks.

I started by playing "Robot Attack." This game reminds me of "Daleks," the old cross-platform game based on Doctor Who and his arch-enemies. However, Robot Attack is more fast-paced because the robots do not wait for you to move before making their own move. Additionally, you aren't crashing the robots into each other, like in Daleks, but rather you are able to shoot in all directions. The game is not terribly difficult, but is definitely addictive!
