    They had Mac and PC. This is getting newer than some of your games. I played it on a Mac at school, then got the PC version for home for Christmas one year. My dad had to look everywhere for it because it had been discontinued, but he found it (yay dad!). It came on 3.5 floppies and I played it on my Win 95 machine.

    Hanoi Towers on a Digital computer (if anyone can remeber them....).

    This is what the display looked like:


    * * *
    ** ** **
    **** **** ****
    ****** ******* *****
    ******** ******** ********
    ********** ********** **********

    It was written in a revelutionary language called........... Basic :eek:

    For some reason all the asterix are bunched up to the left. It is supposed to look like three towers made os a number of tiers a bit like abstract christmas trees

    First PC game ever played!?. well i class every computer as a Personal Computer, so i'll start with the Commodore 64, to me the windows based PC doesnt deserve merit in this catergory, it all started much much earlier than a crappy windows machine.

    I think its was The Last Ninja on the C64 !?. or maybe Driller!???. i dont know.. but my finest games ever were played on the Commodore Amiga!!.. my first game on that machine was FA/18-Interceptor!!.. Man that game blew my mind!.. then every other Amiga game after that, just had my eyeballs out of their sockets, and my jaw on the floor!. hehehe..

    I played Flight Simulator and Battletank on my first computer which was 12,5mhz I think. Actually mine first computer I played Mercenaries of Astonia, Descent, and Hover that came with the system.

    I have the disks for decent. I found it at a thrift store for $2, and I couldn't resist. Unfortunately, I can't get it to install. I have Hover on my desktop also right now. I play it once in awhile, then it strikes me how lame it is.

    Hmm...that's tough. I must have been about 5 or 6, maybe younger! Probably the Commander Keen games or Quake. I had a lot of shareware disks et cetera back then, so it's hard to know the FIRST game I ever played. Might have been the first Mechwarrior or Earthsiege 1.

    I still can't get over how you were happily fragging zombies before you were in second grade...you were always mature for your age I guess.

    Meh, I was a happy little boy. A bit morbid, but happy nonetheless. Mother Dearest must have worried about me, though...which MAC games were you playing when you were a cute little guy, Gaber?

    hehe, that you were:) Ha, yeah the old mac games, well aside from "Monster" which was some horrid randomly generated black/white cave game thing I'd have to say CosmicOsmo would've been an early one. Another b/w game from '89 I think. Point and click at it's finest really, just about everything you clicked on made a noise, hours of crazy entertainment, I still play it now.

    Funny...I never had to endure the "black and white" games. In fact, I had never seen one until you showed me the old Prince of Persia game. All of my PC games were in color. Flaky, crappy, 256 color, but color nonetheless. Oh yeah! Forgot to mention. I'm doing Computer Science class. Very interesting. One segment deals with hacking...I'll show you sometime. :D
