Wang Laboratories was a US-based computer manufacturer that operated from 1951 to 1992. The company developed a line of computers and associated software products, including: Wang 2200: A desktop calculator that could perform algebraic and trigonometric functions. Wang 300 series: A line of mini computers that were used for scientific and engineering calculations, as well as business applications such as payroll and inventory management. Wang VS series: A line of mainframe computers that were used for large-scale data processing, such as accounting and record-keeping. Wang PC: A line of personal computers that were introduced in the early 1980s and were used for a variety of applications, including word processing and data analysis. Wang Office Automation System: A suite of office productivity software that included word processing, spreadsheet, and database management applications. Wang Laboratories was known for its innovative technology and was a leading player in the computer industry for many years. However, the company faced financial difficulties in the 1980s and was eventually acquired by another company in 1992. Despite its challenges, the legacy of Wang Laboratories and its contributions to the computer industry continues to be recognized and remembered today. Information on games specifically designed for Wang Laboratories computers is limited. The company primarily focused on business and scientific computing and did not have a large presence in the gaming industry. Some popular games of the time, such as Space Invaders and Pac-Man, could be run on personal computers like the Wang PC, but it's unclear if there were many games developed specifically for Wang Laboratories computers.
