I've just uploaded Killer 'thello to atari.archive.umich.edu (141.211.165.41)
under the filename THELLO.ARC.  The archive is 41926 bytes long and contains
the executable, documentation, and full MAC/65 assembly source.  Pending some
administrative delays, it should be in the 8bit directory shortly.

Killer 'thello is a computer adaptation of the classic board game Othello (also
known as Reversi) with the modification that players don't have to take turns.
You can play against another person, the computer opponent, or both at the same
time.  Killer 'thello was sort-of inspired by Killer Chess written by my pal
Greg "maddog" Knauss.

If there's interest, I could also upload a VERY complete Font/Character Set
editor I wrote over the period from 1985 to 1989.  Too many features to
mention.  Let me just say that it has everything I ever heard of or saw in
another editor.  It was used to create both the character sets and screens in
Boulder Bombers, Maze War, Killer 'thello, and a few projects that never saw
the light of day.
