Virtual Apple ][ has published a new Apple ][ game. SHELL*SHOCK is a high paced action tank battle game for the Apple ][ computer. Originally written in 1985 by Peter Blum, Alan Burkle, and Jonathan Dunaisky, the game has been largely unseen until this month when it was resurrected by the original authors and sent to Virtual Apple ][.
SHELL*SHOCK is unique in the Apple ][ gaming realm as it allows users to battle each other in two player mode over the modem. While this feature is something that is long lost to the annuls of computing history, in 1985 it was a feature that was not really available in games of the time.
SHELL*SHOCK runs on any Apple II series computer with at least 64K of memory. The game comes complete with a full 40 page instruction manual, two disks and is freely downloadable from the Virtual Apple ][ website at:
