No, but you could start from Gene version of Othello/Reversi and add the video escape sequences to make it a full screen version.

I am sure it did

Build escape sequences in alpha then send it (OUTA) to the selected video interface.
Everything must be done manually, it's very tedious but it works.

Nop!

You could look at some video samples that I have made for Christoph when he was implementing his 82163A and 92198 video interface simulators.
The tests were made using Christoph Emu71 connected to a PIL-Box from Jean-Fran├žois with the real video interfaces.
Those tests could had been made easily with a HP-41CX+HPIL (or a HP-41CV+XFM+HPIL) instead.

You can create small routines that does it and then assign the labels to the desired keys.

Best regards,
