Blackjack is a computerized version of the casino card game. The object of the game is to get a higher count than the dealer without going over 21. You can choose an amount of money to start with, and place a bet for each hand until you either run out of money or decide to quit while ahead! The game uses 80 column text mode with ascii characters to represent the cards.
Backgammon, Poker, and Blackjack are very early PC versions of popular parlor/casino games, published by ShareData in the mid-80s. There is not much I can say about these games, except that they are pretty decent titles by 1987 standards, with non-existent but serviceable ASCII-only "graphics" and concise on-line rules of each game. In this day and age, all these games seem horribly dated, and even in their time they were far from the best available. IBM's Backgammon, for example, features nice CGA graphics and many more play options - even though it was released 3 years before ShareData's game. Poker is probably the best game of this bunch, but that is not saying much either. Worth a look as early pioneers of PC gaming history, but not recommended to anyone who actually want to play them.
