Lode Runner Web Game

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/24

Just found out about [Wayback] Lode Runner Web Game:

A HTML5 (CreateJS) remake of Lode Runner

I have played that way too much in my Apple ][ and //e days.

Hopefully I won’t be addicted to it as back in those days.

Just watching the demo mode is soooooo cool!

I remember designing my own lievens, then winning from the local Apple shop (Vlasveld Computers, which also had a country wide Apple magazine). Cool days!

Two fans were podcasting at RetroMacCast before it was cool

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/07

Around this time, episode 500 of RetroMacCast should be out.

It’s an “about weekly” podcast centered around classic Apple computers, mainly of the Macintosh kind but occasionally also on the Apple I, ][, //e, //c and ///, IIgs and Lisa kinds.

After all these years since they started in 2006, It’s still fun to listen to.

Occasionally they do a vodcast on YouTube, for instance their 100th show below.

New episodes are announced here:
