I was leafing through an old copy of CC when I came across a review of a game on the Apple II known as Escape. I immediately recognized it as one I have played in many variations on different machines.
The basic premise is simple, you are located in a field filled with a number of fixed obstacles and a number of enemies. At every move the player moves one space in eight directions, and then the enemies will move one step toward the player. The player attempts to escape by causing the enemies to collide with each other or the playfield obstacles. I recall playing one version in B&W on the Mac that was excellent.
I'd like to write a Wiki article on the topic, so if anyone knows of versions on various early platforms, and especially the name of the Mac version, please reply and I'll try to get as much info as I can.
UPDATES: So far I've talked to Mac Oblesby, Bill Cotter, John McGeachie, Peter Doyle, Chris Walker, Stephen Garland and Art Luehrmann. Bill is the only one that even remembers it. Many on the list pre-date the switch to the GE-635, which is where I think it came from, but Art would have remembered it if anyone was going to. I'm trying to find Tony Dwyer out there, he seemed to be one of the main admins in the early 1970s period.
