One of the best things about the Apple was that anybody could program an entire game for it themselves, and then sell it and launch a new career. There are thousands and thousands of home-brewed Apple games out there. Some are fun, some are weird, and....some are disturbing.
Who is Sammy, and how did a computer nerd get so angry at him that he spent hours on a graphic demo that displayed Sammy getting killed over and over via the user's choice of weapon?
Thankfully, Sammy wasn't a real guy.
Sammy was an irritating game mascot character in a Donkey Kong clone with a massive pompadour hairdo. According to Wikipedia "The character became something of a cult anti-favorite, inspiring a homemade toy written in Applesoft BASIC called Kill Sammy, which let you murder the circus worker in a number of creative and gruesome ways."
Now I wish I hadn't looked it up. It was more interesting as a percieved act of revenge.
