Welcome to the Gorillas development site


Gorillas is an iPhone game based on the gameplay of an old game written by IBM folks in the QBasic language, and first distributed by Microsoft in MS-DOS 5 as a demonstration of the programming language.

The ‘’Gorillas’’ iPhone game is a port of this old game, which introduces some convenience features (such as one-tap throwing), improved graphics (no kidding), and competitive gameplay through the introduction of a dynamic AI and a scoring system.
