I had a bootleg copy of “Rescue On Fractalus!” for my Atari 800XL that I downloaded (over 300bd modem no less) from Skull Island BBS, one of the more notorious Atari warez boards way back in the day. It was a pre-release copy, so the title screen said “Behind Jaggi Lines!” instead of Rescue on Fractalus.
I LOVED that game, both for the tense moments waiting for a knock at the airlock door or an alien jump scare, and because it was one of my most prized pieces of warez back when I was a terrible teenage software pirate.
Probably Apshai then, and yeah, 11-year-old me was completely smitten with that game too, even though it took like 15 minutes to load off tape. The fact that I even remember the names of all the early TRS-80/Atari RPGs speaks volumes about my priorities as a nerdy pre-teen/teen. Games were life, and hot girls were something you saw in music videos on MTV between gaming sessions. ;-)
