This is one of the most stunning Apple II illustrations I've ever seen. I had to break into an emulator debugger to verify that it was really single hi-res (280×192, 6 colors, none of them yellow).

@a2_4am What's it from? Is "Quest for the Pole" the name of the software?

@PastaThief yes, it's part of Microzine (issue no. 28), a kind of "magazine on a disk" published by Scholastic in the 1980s.

@a2_4am I remember as a young gay man, the "Quest for the Pole" 🤣

@a2_4am I remember this BLOWING MY FRICKIN MIND as a kid when I saw this effect on a live Apple ][
