“Apple Town Story: Little Computer People” (アップルタウン物語: Little Computer People) is a life simulation game released by Square and Activision in 1987. The game was released for the Famicom Disk System, a Japan-only peripheral for Nintendo’s Famicom game console (akin to the NES in North America). The music in “Apple Town Story” was composed by Nobuo Uematsu, best known for his work on numerous Final Fantasy soundtracks.

“Apple Town Story” is based on an earlier Activision game called “Little Computer People” that was released on a number of 1980s computer and game systems such as the Commodore 64. While the two games share the same overall concept, “Apple Town Story” differs in gameplay and design. For example, the character in “Apple Town Story” is female, while every other version of “Little Computer People” only offers a male character.

  1. My only real complaint about this game is that it doesn't seem to play right on FCEUX. After the girl runs to the right of the screen during the intro, the game freezes.
