First Time Playing Crossbow

I have had this game called Crossbow in my collection for a while now.  It is for the XE computers.  Tonight, I played it for the first time.  Keep in mind that I have never played this game before let alone heard of it. How did I do?  I got 478,000 points.  I have no clue if that is good or bad because it doesn't take long to start racking up points in this game. Did I enjoy the game?  Oh yes!  I even played a second game but did not do as well.  I have yet to discover how to reach th

I'm not familiar with any of Microprose Commander Series games.

Silent Service (Atari 8-bits)

There was a time when buying a new game required using the packaging material to grab the consumer's attention. There usually was no limit to how far a software company would go to deliver a package that created an impulse buy. And by that I mean there was no other way around it...you simply had to have that game no matter what based on what the package looked like and how it presented the software inside the box.   Silent Service for the Atari 8-bit computer consoles was developed by
