Abandonware – Gorilla.bas (PC)

8 07 2009

Before Worms, before browser cannon games like Yeti Games and Kitten Cannon and even before Scortched Earth, there was Gorilla.bas

This is truly abandonware, a game that came with DOS.
It came with Nibbles.bas, which I already wrote about.
It was actually a code example for compiler Qbasic, so you actually had to open the code and compile to run the game.
Since computers still didn’t have a mouse or a graphics based interface for that matter, you had to type the angle and power for your gorilla to throw a banana. Objective was to hit your enemy, as seen on the video (players are insanely good… it took me several attempts before hitting target).
Good times… xD
