I’ve mentioned this game in the past. As I was searching around, I wondered. Whatever happened to the guy who built that great game for EA. When I saw this game, I took all of my savings and bought an Amiga 500 the next week. It was amazing. I had it hooked up to my stereo and when you heard the sound it was just incredibly powerful. Everybody who saw the game (computer geek or not) was just blown away and immediately wanted to learn how to play.
Well, two links.
Of course, the Wikipedia page on the game is ok.
This blog post really captures the spirt of the original game.
Finally, had to mention this:
