A Mac version of the RobotWar! I've been mucking about with writing that for MANY years off and on, but never had the time to get very far ... it looks like someone had beaten me to it anyway.

RobotWar on the Apple II was a great way to learn the logic of programming and a good step up from the Turtle graphics of Logo. The programming-game was origianlly written by Silas Warner for the PLATO computer system in the 1970s, and then ported to the Apple II. I've still got my photocopy of the original manual for the Apple II version. Smile

Only RoboWar 4.1.2 works on Mini vMac. The other versions give me the bomb error...
