Designer extraordinaire Dani (nee Dan) Bunten’s third game for SSI is Cytron Masters, a fun futuristic 2-player strategy game that not only pushes the Apple II’s hardware to its limits, but also is one of the first truly playable real-time games. Two players battle it out in a battlefield, testing their wits and quick decisions against another. The computer player is also included, but its low intelligence makes this game fun against real humans only. Overall, another classic Dani Bunten game that may not stand the test of time as well as M.U.L.E., but is still an amazing feat of programming in its own right. Too bad a PC version of this was never released.
