The M.U.L.E. Machines: Other Systems
Besides the wide-spread home computers of the early 1980s and the Nintendo NES video game console, there was a Japanese adaption of the M.U.L.E. game by Bulletproof Software for home computers using the MSX standard and the Zilog Z80A CPU.
Bulletproof Software released another Japanese version of M.U.L.E. for the NEC PC-8801 mkII which was only sold in Japan. We don't even own a machine of this kind.
IBM released a version of M.U.L.E. for their IBM PCjr which was a flop. The PCjr of course, not M.U.L.E.
A downsized version of IBM's Personal Computer, the IBM PCjr was released in 1984 on the home computer market which was dominated by the Commodore 64 and the Apple II at that time. It had an Intel 8088 CPU at 4.77 MHz and was shipped with either 64 or 128 KB of memory.
Playing M.U.L.E. even on a mobile telephone must be the crest of the Green Packer's manic obsession for using the smallest possible display when working with computers or watching movies. Ever since he has been playing computer games on his Commodore back in '84, he had always dreamt of being able to take a miniature version of the C64 with his games everywhere.
