This is a Boggle-like game from the early days of the Macintosh.

About the contents of the first archive:

"WebstersRevenge.dsk" was made with DiskDup+ v2.9.2, from a disk provided by "Wakko Warner," who swears that the game works on a Mac Plus but will only run from actual floppies made by the bit-copy method. In order to make the image, DiskDup+ had to be set to tolerate 3 bad sectors; it appears Webster's Revenge uses a form of copy protection involving checking to see if those "bad" sectors are present. Since disk images can only be made by the sector-copy method, the game does not work from this image, but is being provided in the hope that someone with hacking skills may be able to make it work. The disk is in MFS format.

"WebsterDemo.dsk" is a DiskDup+ image containing the Demo version of Webster's Revenge, which was found on an old Boston Computer Society shareware floppy and placed on this new disk image to facilitate easy use with Mini vMac. There is no copy protection on the Demo and it works fine with many Mac systems and emulators. The disk is in Mac OS Standard format.

Second archive: a new disk image taken from the original media by DiskDup+ and saved in DiskCopy 4.2 format. Only one "bad" sector needed to be tolerated to make a copy; it's probably a better subject for testing hacks of its copy protection. Also includes instructions in PDF.

Architecture: 68k

I've obtained original media and made a disk image from it; the disk was write protected and appears to be unchanged since 1984. It only needed to have one "bad" sector tolerated, so is possibly a more accurate copy than what was previously available. It's now available as the second archive. If anyone with hacking skills wants to give this a try, now would be the time...

I grew up with the demo version of this game. Would love to play the full version sometime!
