Description

This article is from the Apple II Csa2 FAQ, by Jeff Hurlburt with numerous contributions by others.

11.002 Where can I find hints, docs, pictures, and other game information?

         Several of the larger game archives offer docs, hints, cheats, and
walkthroughs. Fewer go into copy deprotection and copying.

     Three very good collections of Apple II game hints, docs, cheats, and
solutions are on ...

Apple II Textfiles
http://www.textfiles.com/apple/

Asimov or an Asimov mirror
ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/documentation/

GS WorldView's Archive
http://apple2.org.za/gswv/a2zine/Docs/

     You can find screen shot and game box pics-- great for making disk labels-
- on some sites; but, no single archive or web page offers anything like a
comprehensive selection.

     Author, publisher, and historical information is relatively rare. One
site, The Giant List, does a good job listing game authors along with their
games, publishers, and dates.

     If a game or series has its own web site, this will often be the best
place to look for docs, support materials, pictures, and author/publisher info.
Good examples are sites for Ultima, Bard's Tale, Infocom games, and the games
published by Penguin/PolarWare.
