  Apple IIgs demos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Apple IIgs demoscene goes back to the days of the original Apple II series in the 1980s, when software crackers would put "signature screens" at the beginnings of games of which they had broken the copy protection.
However, a scene in the true sense of the word didn't emerge until the introduction of the Apple IIgs and its high-quality (for the time) graphics and sound capabilities.
Most IIgs demos were self-booting 800K 3.5" disks, often created with unique booting software that allowed for loading and playing of the demo within seconds of turning the computer's power on.

 Welcome to the Apple IIgs Gaming Memory Fairway
The Apple II was similar, in some respects, to the Amiga and the Atari ST. This particular 16-bit machine may have been the less popular of the three, but is just as fondly remembered by its users, if not more so.
Although containing commercial software is naughty, I think it's a nice thought that users of other platforms experience IIGS gaming than worry about legal technicalities which due to circumstances of time, really enforce nothing and protect nobody.
I think the Apple IIGS and emulation of older computers is more fun than computing today.
