Everyone complains about E.T., but no one does anything about it. 30 years after its release, with some time off for the new year, I took a shot at fixing some of the problems like accidentally falling into wells and the punishing difficulty. It turned out really well, and makes for a much better experience. If you actually step on a well, you'll fall in -- just not when you're clearly on solid ground, as in the image above. (1) Thanks to Nukey Shay's suggestions, sprites are no longer...

From the Festival Floppies collection. Mugshots is an MS/DOS adaptation of an old favorite on the Radio Shack Color Computer, Identikit (written by Robert and Daniel Delbourgo). The program brings out the artist in you by letting you create faces (often funny ones) by selecting facial features from a menu and adding them together. Although the number of facial features available is limitted, the hours of fun and enjoyment you'll have playing with the program may seem endless.

OPTICAL ILLUSIONS   by D. and R. Delbourgo  The eye is easily deceived.  Psychologists will tell you that our perception of shape is noticeably influenced by the geometry and character of the surroundings: nowhere is this more apparent than in the most famous optical illusions.  The listing below contains a number of such illusions (except for the checkered spirals and endless stairs) for your amusement.  The CoCo can score over the textbook demonstrations in that the shapes can be...

Generally, this is a good strategy since the generals in the Civil War were fairly good military strategists.  However, you can frequently outperform the Civil War generals, particularly in cases where they did not have good enemy intelligence and consequently followed a poor...
