    Talking Elevator Repairman

    Anyone remembers this game?, itīs for Atari XE/XL and itīs very very simple but awesome and of course, very fun (in my opinion, of course). The problem is that i couldnīt find enough information about this game around the web, for example, a snap from the original cart/disk, some reviews, nothing!, nothing except...

    So, do you have any extra information about this game?.
    Thanks in advance

    Oh man - this is so cool - I wrote this game almost 20 years ago! I patterned it after "Spy's Demise". Not much in the way of fancy graphics - it had to be small enough to make it practical to type it in from a magazine. Thanks, folks, for making this stuff available - a real trip down memory lane.


    along with his email address if you wanted to shoot him some fan mail

    Looks like there's no original cart/disk since it was a magazine release. Good luck finding scans of the original pages (that's about the best you're going to get as for as original stuff goes)

    edit - oh hey, source code

    In case you weren't already aware, someone's working on a port of this game for the atari 2600.
