Spacewar! (re)sources

Here are some collected resources on Spacewar! (1962 digital video game):

Spacewar! was conceived in 1961 by Martin Graetz, Stephen Russell, and Wayne Wiitanen. It was first realized on the PDP-1 in 1962 by Stephen Russell, Peter Samson, Dan Edwards, and Martin Graetz, together with Alan Kotok, Steve Piner, and Robert A Saunders. — Spacewar! is in the public domain, but this credit paragraph must accompany all distributed versions of the program.

All sources are provided in a format to be used with the modern C-version of the Macro assembler, macro1.c, namely using a backslash (\) as a prefix to any assembler variables (while originally denoted by an overstroke in the name).

Authentic soures and images of binary paper tapes of Spacewar! are available at bitsavers.org/bits/DEC/pdp1/papertapeImages/.
