Thread: Looking for old Apple II game, need expert help

    Default

    Can anyone help me on how to use the .dsk file? I used to love that Bomber game and think my son would, too. I can use Windows 7, Windows 8, or Linux systems to do this. Thanks in advance and much thanks to the folks that found this gem and made it available.

    Wow. Really nice find! Thanks!


    There's this writeup on how the copy protection worked
    http://www.hackzapple.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=51


    Which happens to be the forum of brutaldeluxe.fr (see last post)

    That happens to be an actively maintained disk collection still!


    I think you need an Apple II emulator to use the dsk. I'll post a guide later if/when/needed I get the Bomber game running.

    I couldn't help but notice people are getting success here, and I too have a childhood A2 game that has been lost.
    Title: Fish Scales

    That link is the most complete record I've found. Perhaps someone has it? In an Australian Apple II magazine they did a one line review of it, so perhaps it's Australian only release?
    It's mentioned in this document so maybe it's less rare than thought?

    A world away from my original post means I can now personally present to the community a blog post which explains how I found the disk, what program I used to crack the copy protection and screenshots:

    For those looking, BOMBER II is located on the same website. This is the version where there are flags and you can turn around. It is part of Math Facts Tracker

    This thread has been very helpful.

    When I was a child we had the full version of Math Facts Tracker (with Bomber II)--not the demo version. If anyone has been able to locate the disk image for that, please post!

    Omg! I feel like I'm so close but so far still! How do I open that demo.dsk file!? I, like everyone else, have ALSO been searching for this game for years, and years,...and years. Please help! I have been on a million forums and have chased a thousands leads and this is the closest I've come. Help!

    Default Just use an Apple 2 Emulator

    If you want to use the dsk file, use an apple 2 emulator. They can be found online like here: https://www.scullinsteel.com/apple2/. When it asks what you want to play, browse your computer files and point it to the dsk file which it will then run. Then enjoy reliving your past as I did !
