I just wanted to share with Apple II fans my orginal disk of Akalabeth(progame edition) running on an actual hardware.  I do believe there are not many videos of people showcasing this game on video running on actual hardware.  The Video Monitor is a B & W Amdek Video 100.  Enjoy!

Have also been offered $1000 for my disk. Not enough.
 
My version of the game is Complete! ~ Akalabeth World of Doom ~ Demon Cover Art release.
(See PICs)
 
Would consider a serious offer from right collector/fan.
 
GAME:
Akalabeth World of Doom Apple ][ 5¼" Disk California Pacific Computer Company 1980
 
Game Start:
When the game boots up it asks whether or not you want instructions.  Press the "Y" key and the game 
then runs through the basic history of Akalabeth along with a cave/dameon GRAPHIC Arts intro. screen
& the instructions for playing.  Pressing "N" from this first prompt skips past the intro and 
instructions and takes you directly to the start of the game.
 
Manual Directions/Controls:
You can use the arrow keys to move Left~West and Right~East but to move Up~North you use the " Enter " 
key and to move Down~South you use the " / " key.
Letter " S " for players Statistics
Letter " A " for Attack
SpaceBar for PASS

I enjoyed the video... though the 7 minutes of giddy rejoicing that preceded actually showing the game was a bit much.

You can download it from Asimov. The disk and papers are collectors fodder.

I'm actually surprised it boots on a //c. I remember buying The Standing Stones at Electronics Boutique when it came out and it wouldn't boot at all. I think it either just went to Check Disk Drive or dumped into the monitor after the title screen (it's been too long so I don't quite remember). Regardless, it wouldn't work on the //c.

Cool to see it running on real hardware.  I've never had the pleasure.  However, I did enjoy the iOS port of Akalabeth.  It was really well done imho.  Never been able to beat it, though.
