HISTORY
       Sopwith was originally designed as a demonstration  game  for
       the  Imaginet Networking System developed by BMB CompuScience
       of Canada. The system failed to become  popular  but  Sopwith
       became  a  popular  game  for  the  IBM PC and compatibles. A
       sequel "Sopwith 2" was actually a newer version rather than a
       different  game,  but  included  many extra features, such as
       Oxen and birds. Sopwith was also ported  to  the  Atari.  The
       original  author, David L. Clark, later created Sopwith - The
       Author's Edition with several extra features  including  mis‐
       siles. This version of sopwith is based on the source for the
       Authors Edition.
