Apple Macintosh Software Game - 'MacCricket', 3½" Floppy Disk, 1989 Object Reg. No: HT 13539 1

Early Macintosh computer game on a 3.5 inch floppy disk. There are other items associated with this disk, namely two manuals and a registration form in a cardboard box. The game was developed in Australia.

MacCricket was collected because it is representative of the use of the graphic user interface (GUI) introduced in 1983, even though the game itself was released in 1989.

It was also collected because it is an example of an electronic game that simulated a sport and because it was produced in Sydney by an Australian company, Achernar Systems Pty Ltd.

This item is part of a representative collection of hardware, software, trade literature and promotional material that documents the history of the Apple company, and its contribution to, and impact on the computer industry and society.
A 3/1/2 inch floppy disk with a hand written label covered by a printed label. Two manuals and a registration form.
