Megaroids is a freeware video game written by Mike Bunnell with audio by Mitch Bunnell. It was released in 1984 by Megamax Inc. for the Apple Macintosh and, when the compiler was adapted in 1985, for the Atari ST platform as well. The game came with the Megamax C compiler for both platforms as a demonstration of compiler capabilities (specifically the ability to include in-line assembly language in C code). Megaroids was included also in the early Atari ST sales packages. Source code for the game was available for a small charge.
