According to Artworx, their product was "the longest continuously published bridge game for computers."

It was originally coded in 1977 on one of the first "micro-computers" as a diversion from more important work at a large company in Rochester, NY. It was first released to the public as Bridge 2.0 in 1978 and when Artworx was started, it was updated to Bridge 3.0. At various times, it was available for the Apple II, TRS-80, Atari (8-bit and ST), North Star, CP/M, Commodore Pet, VIC 20, Commodore 64, Amiga, Macintosh and PC. Bridge 2.0 and 3.0 had to fit in just 8K of RAM to run on those early computers!

The game arrived on the Macintosh at version 4.0 in 1986. This download is the final release, version 8.0 from 1995. It runs on anything from a System 6 Mac Plus on up.
