Dont worry i havent gone mad and i know Zack posted this the other day but for my own linkage reasons for the DS site ill post it as well and lets be fair an Apple 2 emu for DS deserves being praised and promoted.
News/release from Grizzly Adams
I've been working on this since the end of June when a friend told me about the retroemu contest. This is a completely new emulator written for this compo. Its very unfortunate I was not able to complete the disk emulation in time for entry. This is the fourth Apple II emulator I've worked on, and my second written from scratch. The Apple II is a challenge to emulate because of the many hardware tricks implemented by Steve Wozniak. It was because of these quirks that the Apple was more affordable than many of its competitors. I would have loved to have the disk emulation and other minor bugs fixed so that classics such as Oregon Trail, Number Munchers, Karateka, and Prince of Persia could be played. I plan to continue working on this emulator for the coming months. All feedback is welcome.
