32-bit Windows programming didn't start with Windows 95. The first 32-bit
Windows operating system was Windows NT 3.1, released in July 1993. But the
software development kit was released nearly a year earlier, along with a
contest for shareware authors. Wolfgang Strobl won the first prize in the
games category with this port of Klotz:
A graphics card that could display 1280×1024 with 256 colors at 72 Hz, and
a matching 15" monitor.
Ironically, unlike the 16-bit version, this one will not run on XP any
more. It runs well on Windows 3.1 with Win32s.
