Check Out This TSR Apple II Comic Book Ad

As I’ve said before, in my youth the computer I was lucky enough to have bought for me was the Commodore 64. It was at school however that I became familiar with the legendary Apple II computer, not in a computer class but in Typing. If we did well on our assignments we would be given 15 minutes to “play” with the computer.

Luckily for us there were a few gaming options to choose from and shockingly not just education games like the Oregon Trail. I’m talking titles like Autoduel and some Infocom games to boot. Sadly however we didn’t have any TSR games like Dungeon!, Dawn Patrol, or Theseus and the Minotaur.

Theseus and the Minotaur

Speaking of Dungeon! it appears that High Retro Gamelord has been kind enough to upload a video of it’s gameplay. Odd that for a fantasy title you had the option of playing a Superhero?!
