      From the FAQ page:

      The history of Frenzic stretches all the way back to 1990 when the game's creator, Wolfgang Ante, was watching a cheesy game show similar to Wheel of Fortune. The show involved spinning a big wheel and a ball inside would land on money values for contestants to win big prizes. Wolfgang came up with the concept of placing pie wedges in a circle against a timer and "Leblon" was born.

      Yes, the original name for Frenzic was Leblon and it was first created for the Atari ST platform way back in the 1990's. The game made its way from one platform to another over the years including MS-DOS (never published), Apple System 7, NEXTstep (never published) and now Mac OS X with the new name and updated game play, Frenzic.

      And because no one is asking: I named all apps in this period after districts of Rio de Janeiro, which I visited in 1982.

      Aufgeräumter, ja. Hätte auch sicher 2 Stück verkauft so. Oder 1,5 vielleicht.
