Re: First emulated game?

>what was the FIRST arcade game to be emulated? I'm guessing Pacman but I don't know.

The thread discussing Dave Spicer's Sparcade might have best answers.

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/95000-sparcade/

Sparcade was out maybe just slightly before Nicola S. was developing MAME in 1996 before releasing first version of MAME in spring 1997. My guess is Digital Eclipse doing the Williams games in 1994/1995 before releasing a commercial product for Mac computers in 1995 may have been first emulation.


I recall first seeing Digital Eclipse Williams Games product only for Macs in fall 1995 and I, being an IBM user, was bummed seeing that. Digital Eclipse finally made an IBM version the following year.
