Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

Able Builders

Able Builders is loosely based on such games as the Atari 2600's smash hit Kaboom, or the old arcade game Avalanche. The object is to catch falling objects before they hit the bottom of the screen. This version of the game, unlike other Coco games similiar to it such as Catch'em or Popcorn, however, adds several twists: The objects are being dropped by a person (same as Kaboom), but the more you miss, the further down his whole girder comes you much less reaction time to catch the objects. If he gets down too far, he will crush you. On the other hand, if you catch a certain number in a row, you can force the girder back up... and if you force it off the top of the screen, you proceed to the next level.
