- GAME -> Fireball! Years ago, an engineer anonymously distributed the code to play this logic game on a Hewlett Packard calculator, using paper and pencil. This is a Windows version that John wrote. The game grid is a 10x10 array containing several hidden posts. By firing cannons into the array and observing where the balls emerge, you deduce the location of the posts. The object of the game: to deduce the location of the hidden posts. John has tested this on Windows 98/2000/XP, and it should also run on NT.
Download Fireball! This downloads FBsetup.exe. Run FBsetup.exe, which will install the Fireball program and make a desktop shortcut. There is also a help file to show how to play the game.
