I have to log into Fileplanet to download a 160k file? WTF?
Planetquake used to be my favorite website in college. Oh how they have strayed from the path...
Good thing you provided that link to the tribute page.

Wow, feedback! The sound of indifference was becoming deafening... but still it's nice to pretend that this is a bully-pulpit for this kind of thing.
The other tribute page creator is actually trying her hand at a remake (though not a 1 to 1 port w/ the original cast)... http://www.gamersquarter.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=861
To answer your first question, the game never got the mainstream attention it deserved because of its release solely as a type-in (or disk edition if you were really lucky) for COMPUTE's Gazette, a popular magazine but probably w/ a declining audience already by the time 1987 rolled around.

Woah. How long would it have taken to type that sucker in?

I've heard someone say a couple of hours.

Well, I was on BBSes with a Commodore in the early 90's. I figure I would have picked it up on a BBS.
