The First Ever IBM PC Game, Now Available on Your iPhone

Illustration for article titled The First Ever IBM PC Game, Now Available on Your iPhone

The first game to ever feature on a PC, co-written by Bill Gates, was Donkey, a driving game in which you had to avoid donkeys. For years, it's been missing from your life, but don't worry: now you can get it on iOS.

Sometimes referred to as DONKEY.BAS — that was it's file name — it really shows off everything that is great and good about 8-bit games. It is ridiculously simple: you only use one button, to change lanes. It costs $0.99 in the app store, and it is worth every cent. [iTunes App Store]
