The sequel to "Gorf".


Unfortunately due to the games crash of 1983, Ms. GORF was never finished. There are several complications reviving this, GORF was written in Forth, but M. sGORF was written in an early version of TERSE. The source code, stored on a set of 5 & 8-inch floppy disks, is owned by Gorf programmer Jamie Fenton.

Jamie writes: "One of the issues with reviving Ms. GORF is that hardware configuration changed a few weeks before the project was cancelled. We used a form of collision detection that depended on monitoring the write-cycle (if a certain value was written over another value, declare a collision). There were other strange details that I can't remember."
