Short robot seeks dog with jet pack

I used ADTpro to make a bunch of diagnostic disks (this time using one of my Apple //cs over a serial cable I’d gotten for the purpose, and which also will allow the //c to connect to the ImageWriter II). I also made one other disk.

Platiie drol

I didn’t really play it, but I did drive the robot around just a little bit. And even today, I am impressed by the graphics of the robot turning around, and the bounce of the stingers on the Garfield-esque jumping scorpions. Very nicely done. A quick search on YouTube revealed this video of Drol (there are a couple of others as well), and it looks a lot worse than what I saw when I briefly brought it up on the real hardware today. Something lost in emulation maybe?
