Macintosh 128k - 512k 400k disk images

Macintosh 400k disk images

This page is dedicated to software that will run on the earliest Macintosh computers, the 128k and 512k.  All the software below has been tested on a Mac 512k with 400k floppy drive, running System 2.0 and Finder 4.1. 

I've provided these disk images in two formats: .dsk and .sea.hqx.  The .dsk files can be used in Mini vMac or in the Floppy Emu disk emulator.  The .sea.hqx files are for downloading straight to a retro Macintosh.  You'll need BixHex at a minimum on older systems to unpack the hqx archive.  Then the disk images can be extracted by running the .sea (self extracting archives).

 While there are dozens of applications for the original Macintosh on the web, I've been selective with the software below.  I've selected software that showcases these machines and still holds some interest value to today's user.  Let's face it, text adventures were good once upon a time, but I can't imagine sitting down and playing one today!
