It is/was for the commodore PET (yes I am going back a bit) you had to throw rocks down on people tring to climb up a wall.

Er, thats it. It was in 'green screen' when I played it, it was probably made up of ASCII characters, and, um, it was for the PET (did I say that already!)... :roll:

I think it might have been 'Siege', but this may just be because the name sounds right!

Yes, I need some pictures (or links to a good PET games site, with PIC's and descriptions), as I can't find much on the web atoll :roll:

I had this for the Vic-20. The Amiga PD game Ork Attack was a great version of this game too.
