"Apache Strike is a 3D helicopter game first developed for the Apple Macintosh in 1987. Its objective is flying an Apache helicopter through a rudimentary hidden line-rendered cityscape in order to destroy the enemy's strategic defense computer. Enemy helicopters and tanks are encountered and must be shot down along the way. The Apache's position is shown in an onscreen map as well as bearing and distance to the defense computer. Some game events are presented in digitized speech by the Lifelike In-board Narrative Damage Assessment computer, or LINDA.

The intro music bears more than a passing resemblance to the Airwolf helicopter TV series theme."

"This game only runs on a 512 x 342 screen"

I've uploaded a newer version of this, 1.2, and it includes a compatibility chart to show which Mac models with which operating systems it will work.

Tested with Mac OS 7 on Mini vMac. Runs fine, but exiting the game gave mess. So using the included modified System (on the Apache Strike disk, which also boots into vMac) is the best option.

The previous concerns about unstuffing the file should no longer be a concern. I've uploaded a disk image taken from the original media, and scanned its documents into PDF format.

I haven't tested this in Mac OS 7 or 8, though it will require a small monochrome display or it won't run.

The above posted file proved troublesome. Even after altering the Type and Creator codes I wasn't able to open the file using Stuffit Expander 4.0.2 under OS 6 (I think that version of Expander is the highest that works with OS 6). I was able however to open the file using Stuffit Expander 7.0.3 under OS 9. From there I used DiskDup+ to create an image file onto which I copied the newly expanded files. I then used DropZip 7.0.3 to create a zip file able to be opened with OS 10.6. Once back on OS 10.6 I then unzipped the disk image and dropped it onto the Mini vMac icon.

this .sit file doesn't seem to contain a disk image, or at least i cannot run it by opening the included files with mini vmac. what should I do?
