An Apple II with disk drives and monitor.

The Apple II is an 8-bit personal computer sold by Apple and first released in 1977. It was one of the first highly successful home computers. It ran using a MOS 6502 CPU. The computer went through a couple revisions including the Apple II+ before being supplanted by the failed Apple III, and later, the hugely successful Apple IIe.

I never owned an Apple II, but my elementary school had them sometimes in classrooms. I believe I played a handful of educational games on one.

Status

I do not and have never owned an Apple II.

Games

See all Apple II Games.

I didn't get into Apple II gaming until the 2000s when access to emulators and disk binaries became more popular. As such, I don't have any fond memories of playing the games when they were the height of technology. This makes me a bit sad because I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of games because it's now very difficult for me to get past their technical limitations, but at the same time, I'm happy that my opinion isn't rose-tinted.

These are Apple II games that are important to me:
