Anybody remember the game from the mid-80s called Sundog?  It was released on the Apple II and later on the Atari ST and was one of the most enjoyable games I’ve ever played on any platform.  It had two distinct modes, an overhead view when you were on your ship where you had to perform all actions, repair each station, etc.  Then there was the “away” overhead view when you left the ship on different planets and cities.  Absolutely phenomenal piece of programming on the Apple II and I have been searching to see if anyone every ported it to Windows.  I would love to play this game again.  Here’s a blurb of info I was able to find:

Sundog

  1. I think you can find it at http://www.the-underdogs.org…actually, here’s the link: http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=1429

    This is good site in general for older games…

  2. oh, also, you’d prolly need an emulator to play it. But I’ve used the Apple II emulators out there, and they work pretty well (I was reliving the Swordthrust series of test-based adventure games for a while)

  3. I don’t remember that game, but one of my favorite games of all time was Island Apventure, also an Apple II game.

    Other than my brother-in-law, who owned the computer it resided on, I don’t know anyone else who remembers that game.

    I talked about Island Apventure and the rest of my Big 4 on this post at Newsome.Org:

  4. You can get the Atari ST version through an emulator like STeem.

    Funny you brought this up. It was a game I loved playing too and just recently I hunted it down so I could play it. The other one was Time Bandit, although it’s amazing how much better it was in my memory than it was in real life!
