Granny’s Garden, 800kb Apple II

Navigate through: Apple II Software -> Granny’s Garden, 800kb Apple II

Presented here is a new disk image for the Apple II version (famously BBC Micro) of Granny’s Garden.

From the title screen:

Basic lo-res graphics that might be interesting with a younger imagination, so I stopped playing shortly after capturing screenshots.

As far as I can tell this is a unique disk image and not available elsewhere.  I found an Australian article about the programming here:

Hardware capture: 800kb disk image on Floppy Emu in Apple II 3.5 mode, Smartport on Apple IIGS, boot to BASIC, PR#5 -> Capture in 1080p from Extron scaler then screenshots on Mac.  I do not know how to emulate an 800kb disk image in Apple II mode in an emulator on Mac so I had to use real hardware.  I discovered after recording everything that the aspect ratio was wrong so please excuse the slightly vertically compressed image.
