Wings of Fury wouldn't let you save, and I don't think there was an end to it, it would just throw more islands and ships at you, even if you long made captain.
I spent entirely too much time with that game, but I'll have to check if I still got it...;)

Yeah, it's kinda like how huge your house used to seem when you were a kid, and then you go back and find it was actually pretty cramped.
I was able to track down an online version of Shadowgate!!! At first it was like, "Oh man, this is wimpier than I remembered." But after playing it a bit, it was actually quite challenging. The interface was difficult to remaster -- no point and click of the mouse. But soon I was back in the swing of things, having a grand ol' time. Check it out at:

Oh, woooow, this looks incredibly cool! I've never seen it before, but it really, really captures the old Mac SE gaming experience. Wow! I can't wait to give it a whirl. Thanks!
That's one thing that disappointed me about the online version of Shadowgate that I found -- it was colorized. Somehow, it detracted from the nostalgic experience and cheesified the graphics for me. There's just something about those old black and white bitmapped graphics.
