Murphy's Revenge (and Infotron!)

Many moons ago, while they were still in High School, @dangerdave, @dsandler, Nate Cook, and Brooke Nelson set forth to write a video game.

That game was Infotron! and it was released in 1994 for the Macintosh. Infotron was based on a PC game called Supaplex.

After Infotron was finished, attention was turned to Murphy's Revenge -- a planned sequel with smooth scrolling and better graphics. Alas, we went to college and got distracted; Murphy's Revenge was never finished.

What's This?

This repository is our homage to these over 17-year-old games. It's our way of letting go and setting them free.

Here's what you'll find:

  • In legacy/infotron you'll find the source code, data files, 1994 web site, and release archives for Infotron! Infotron was our first large-scale software effort. We wrote it in Pascal, and with the perspective of 17 years I think it is safe to say that we had no idea what we were doing! :-) The data files are old-style MacOS resource files.

  • In legacy/murphy you'll find a lot of random stuff for Murphy's Revenge, including artwork, source code, levels in easy-to-read format, and some test projects. The meat of the original app is in os7code.

  • In iPhone, you'll find an experimental project that displays levels from Murphy's Revenge.

  • The www directory is where, perhaps someday, an HTML5 implementation of Murphy's Revenge will live.

Playing The Games

Get SheepShaver running with MacOS9 and these games will work out of the box. If SheepShaver sound is disabled, Murphy's Revenge will not boot up.
