New Apple II Game: PETSCII Robots

For those of you who follow the 8-Bit Guy, AKA David Murray, on YouTube, you will be pleased to know he has introduced a new game, this time for the Apple II computer. PETSCII Robots is a game in which it is up to you to save the universe from the invading robots. You can accomplish this through the use of a variety of weapons which you accumulate within the game, as you attempt to take on the various levels of robots.

The game is nine different maps within the game. Each map provides different types of robots and it is designed truly with the old school video game in mind. No save and no check points are the theme of the day. Die and you will have to start over. That is the way it used to be and that is what PETSCII gives you as well.

PETSCII is a style of text made famous by the Commodore PET computer. It is quite conducive to making quick and easy graphics games without having to actually know any graphics programming.

David has provided several different options for those Apple II fans who want the physical copy of the game. He is currently taking pre-orders since he is still waiting on manuals from the printing company but the game is available immediately in the Download version. These versions are as follows:
