|Summer Games for Apple II
Like most kids in the 1980s, I loved video games. I started out with Atari, then moved on to computer games as I got a bit older. I remember some of my very early games came on big old black floppy disks. My dad, a teacher, would bring copies home his school. I would play the games every afternoon for hours and hours.
I found some of my old favorite Apple II games on YouTube. It's so crazy, the music and sound effects bring me right back to our basement computer area where I could hide and play games for hours while my mother thought I was studying on our computer. We obviously didn't have the Internet back then. Around 1985, I was completely addicted to the Summer Games - I especially loved the gymnastics, diving and pole vaulting. Watch a demo of the game here:
My other favorite game for the Apple II was Lemonade Stand. Lemonade Stand was basically a game that utilized simple math skills and strategy to earn money while advertising and dealing with the ups and downs of the market - in this case, rainy weather.
