Holy crap, I can not believe I totally forgot about adventure... 

We took it straight away and ported it to BASIC-PLUS because on RSTS/E that
was one of the RTSs (shell if you will) and was interpreted so we could
change it without sending it to batch overnight for the compile like we had
to do with F77. One of my CompSci instructors wanted me to rewrite it in
Macro for my MASM final project to show it could be done. I kept showing him
the code along the way and he was quite surprised when it actually ended up
being a Reverse-Polish functional scientific calculator complete with
graphics on the VT-52 when I handed it in. I always had a feeling he didn't
really know what he was reading when looking at code, especially MASM, that
was the final proof. :o)

Of course you had FORTRAN and COBOL as well but you couldn't do fun

You mean like Adventure?  I still have the original FORTRAN source for that
somewhere on a tape.
