Emulate the Apple ][

Play old Apple games on modern hardware.

The old equipment is great, but it’s difficult to lug an Apple II (or even a //c) with you when you just want to play old Apple games on your laptop. Fortunately, you have lots of options. While I can’t find an Apple II emulator for a cell phone, there are emulators that run under both the Macintosh and Windows platforms and even Windows CE. The best list of emulators I’ve found is at http://dmoz.org/Computers/Emulators/Apple/Apple_II/ , but in practice I tend to stick with a very few emulators. You can also find an old but interesting Apple ][ Emulators Resource Guide FAQ at http://www.faqs.org/faqs/apple2/emulators-faq/part1/.

For all of the emulators, you’ll want to download some disk images before getting started. You can find lots of images at ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/images/. You’ll need to download the image (a .DSK file), and probably decompress it. Once you have a .DSK file, you can use it with most emulators. For convenience, I’m going to demonstrate emulators with ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/images/masters/dos33_with_adt.dsk, a dull but occasionally useful disk.
