Apple IIGS Games

SSI Games

for the Apple IIgs

 

The IIgs shared the unhappy fate of the Commodore 128.  Designed to be a better, faster replacement for older, slower 8-bit brethren with full compatibility with older titles, that very compatibility (as well as decreasing Macintosh prices) spelled its doom.  Why should a publisher, the rationale went, spend money developing for the new machine when people could play the older titles on it already?
