General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

The Dk'tronics newsletter, kindly scanned and made available here by Mark R. Jones, sheds some interesting light on the Popeye that wasn't. It was described as a "fast action/strategy game" where Popeye and Wimpy had to build and provide with furniture a house, while keeping an eye on Swee' Pea and avoiding or fighting Bluto. The programmers were six, of which one "cracked under the strain and mysteriously disappeared", supposedly "heading for Scotland".
