I asked you not to tell me that!
The original homepage of IFJ. Maybe I can find someplace that still sells their stuff?
Somebody's writing a clean-room implementation of Solomon's Key for the NES. All of the original levels are already implemented. Theoretically cross-platform. Doesn't quite work yet but it's getting there. Includes a level editor so you can build your own levels. Seems to have some tricks to getting it to run but I haven't tried them yet.
A clean implementation of a common lettering style found on technical drawings, engraved office signs, computer and typewriter keyboards, and some comic books and avionics from the mid-20th century.
The Altair 8800 Clone is a full size, fully functional replica of the computer that started a revolution – the Altair 8800. Whether used for personal or educational purposes, the Altair Clone is a great way to relive this important period in computing history and learn core computer science principles at the same time!
The Altair Clone provides an accurate, hands-on experience without having to worry about damaging a vintage computer. Built with modern hardware on the inside, the Clone is also less expensive and much easier to keep running than a vintage computer.
The classic book BASIC Computer Games, published by Creative Computing, inspired a generation of programmers. The games were written by many people, and compiled by David H. Ahl. The fabulous illustrations accompanying each game were done by George Beker.
I've included all the games here for your tinkering pleasure. I've tested and tweaked each one of them to make sure they'll run with Vintage BASIC, though you may see a few oddities. That's part of the fun of playing with BASIC: it never works quite the same on two machines. The games will play better if you keep CAPS LOCK on, as they were designed to be used with capital-letter input.
Classic video game sprites of all kinds can be found here. They make great icons.

It can be built at home without special skills or tools and using readily available components for under 10 Euros in parts, or mass-produced for even less.
