Searching for Count with Bunky


Recommended Posts

On the advice of Kevin Savetz I'm putting the word out about my search for a software title my Aunt Ann McBain Ezzell wrote back in 1984 (I'm not sure why it didn't occur to me to post this earlier).


My Aunt was a Contributing Editor for the Michigan Atari Computer Enthusiasts newsletter (MACE Journal) for many years and wrote numerous articles and reviews in that publication (many issues are currently available online at Archive.org)

The software is a math game, called "Count With Bunky", written for a competition being held by Verbatim and Scholastic looking for educational software. Winners received a bunch of hardware and the potential for their title to be published.




According to my Aunt, it's partially written in Basic with some assembly for the animations. It was listed as being published by Swifty Software INC, out of Melville NY, in The Blue Book For the Atari Computer, 1983/84 Edition.




If anyone knows of this title, or has a copy or disk image somewhere, please let me know.

Congrats Joel and your Aunt, always wonderful to hear a good story....


Would your Aunt be interested in releasing the game so not only does every one get to enjoy it but it will be kept in many archives and never lost again.
