Is it somewhat connected to Amiga Son of Zeus? http://hol.abime.net/4432

Not sure. The history behind Ancient Glory is pretty gray. It was originally designed by Joseph Hewitt of Westwood Studios in 1990 for the PC (but never released). About 2-3 years later, it was salvaged and converted for the Apple IIGS (but used the same EGA colour palette as the PC). Nobody knows who actually made the conversion though...

Catacombs GS by John Carmack which was the first game in the Catacomb series of games which would ultimately include Catacomb Abyss and Catacomb 3D (arguably the first FPS ever created). Carmack and his friends at ID would go on to create Wolfenstein 3D and Doom and the rest is history.

It's not an exclusive, but Ive always wanted to play Sinbad And The Throne Of The Falcon on the apple 2gs. It was one of the games that made me really want an amiga back in the day, and the 2gs version has the advantage of the improved, redrawn graphics from the c64 version, and tweaked for the 2gs's improved resolution and color vs. the c64, making it potentially the best version.

Out of this World (Another World). Obviously not exclusive and one of my favorite Amiga games. Still, cool to see it make it to the IIGS: [ Show youtube player ]

Ancient Glory has nothing to do with Son of Zeus.

We are quite lucky Ancient Glory got salvaged the way it did, now its probably the coolest IIGS exclusive.

It's like a primitive version of Rock Band. Pretty cool, too.
