  3. Apple II: Reviews

A collection of reviews of Apple II Software, mostly dated from around the time of the game’s release (for some reason, people haven’t felt the need to review a piece of software after its first decade or so). Especially interesting are the names of companies that have persisted over time, and the companies that have sunk into oblivion.
