    The Apogee Shareware Disc – PC

    Boy, it’s that time, isn’t it? After reviewing every single game I remembered from my old shareware disc, I take a look at the entire Apogee Shareware Disc itself and tell how I feel it worked both as a series of fun games and as a marketing tool! With first acts from many graphically-appealing and fun to play run-and-gun, first-person shooter, and flight sim titles, the disc may be long gone, but its memory definitely lives on!

    Word Rescue – PC

    Word Rescue by Redwood Games is an excellent educational game for the younger children, teaching vital spelling and word association skills without taking them out of the gameplay. Another Apogee-sponsored classic, this is right up there with Math Rescue in being elementary school-level programs that just about any growing child could really prosper from, even today.
