iPhone Adventure – More Retro Love

Again the iPhone developer community thrusts me back in time! Peter Hirschberg recently released the free application, Adventure. This is a faithful recreation of the old Atari 2600 game. I was 11 when the game released and spent countless hours, as a dot, negotiating catacombs and avoiding dragons, that looked a lot like ducks, in search of glory. In 1979, this game was “sweet.” This was also the first game where I discovered an easter egg. I’m not sure how entertaining this free application would be to anyone who wasn’t “there” in 1979. I even have my doubts as to how much time I’ll be playing it, but I LOVE that somebody made it.
