Probably the rarest game from Windmill Software, maker of Digger, Attack on Altair is a shooter game that is entirely text-based –and not a very good one, at that. If you have played Space Invaders and its clones, you know what to expect here. It’s a bit similar to IBM Attack, another very old shooter—except here the objective is the much more mundane kill-aliens-to-save-the-galaxy affair. Action takes place on the surface of planet Altair, but without any real graphics it’s just too difficult making out the targets ;) Worth a try just to see what Windmill’s early days are like—before you put it down and play the timeless Digger instead.
