Here's a Sea Wolf game I wrote in the SmarLOGO programming language. SmartLOGO is a beginners programming language for the ADAM released in 1984. It's an interpreted language like BASIC so it's a little slow and the collision detection isn't as good as it would be with a more advanced language.

Just I've tested it in CoolCV and it works fine. :) Well done, is it your first program in Logo?


Many years have passed since I saw a Logo program in action.


The great graphics done with a few repeating procedures were its main attractive. I had many difficulties understanding the syntax and besides it would be my first "crash" with platform incompatibilities, I remember seeing a nice dragon chasing knight game but never couldn't understood why it couldn't work with my IBM PC Logo, it would take me years to understand it was a C64 Logo game using the propietary extensions.


Glad to see the ADAM version supports VDP sprites.

Wow, it is the first time i see a video game in LOGO!


I have practiced Logo  in the 80's on a Thomson MO5  , but i had never seen a real game done with it!   


I'm impressed.

I remember that way back  when I made a simple Pac-Man demo in SmartLOGO.

What a fun and easy language.
