DevMessageIcon.png This game has a hidden developer message.

Impossible Mission II for the Apple II has a lot of IIs in its name, which very nearly got this article created with the wrong title.

Developer Message

By sector-editing the following bytes:

  • T00,S0E,$4A (byte $E4A in a typical .dsk file) from $13 to $18
  • T00,S0F,$37 (byte $F37 in a typical .dsk file) from $15 to $1A

A secret message from the developer will be displayed in place of the title screen:

While the Apple II line was still in production at this point (and would continue until November 1993), it was dreadfully showing its age by 1988 - not only had it been in existence for over a decade, but the 8-bit microcomputers (specifically, as of '88, the IIe Platinum and IIc/IIc Plus) were being outclassed by Apple's own 16-bit IIGS and their up-and-coming Macintosh line.
