Hey guys, rounding out my collection of Atari software, am looking for the best BASIC games, thus far I have:
* Energy Czar
Not counting the various games by Automated Simulations, Adventure Intl, etc..
Here's a game I play on emulator (altirra). It originates from an HP41 handheld text game.
I wrote it in BASIC, and compiled it with the ABC compiler.
The .BAS file will play OK, but is a little slow if I remember.
I guess it is for old people like me. I don't do hand-eye action games.
The game is played with two seven sided dice (?). You roll the dice and try
to accumulate points to goal you set when you begin. If you roll one snakeye,
you lose a turn and the program plays. If you roll two snakeyes, you go back
to zero points. You hit the spacebar to roll another time. You hit any other key
to stop rolling and let the computer play. I set goal of 250 most of the time.
Lower goal is faster game.
