Hello all! I did a lot of Atari 8-bit coding as a teenager on my Atari 400 and wrote about a few games including about SIX in Atari BASIC, and ONE in 100% assembly language. Some of you may recall that I posted about the assembly language game about 12 years ago. It is a Shoot 'em up called 'Sector Wars" and at the time I was trying to raise money for a charity and when the target was reached I was going to release the game. Unfortunately the target wasn't reached but some very kind people (some of which I believe frequent this forum) did donate at the time and the money went straight to the charity via JustGiving. I always wanted to finish the game but with one thing and another I never got around to it. Original Thread for anyone interested : O Anyway to cut a long story short I am just finishing it off now, and I will release it here next week :). In the meantime for the next few days, I will upload some of my games written in BASIC. A couple were published in the UK Home Computing Weekly magazine in the 1980s, and the rest I never got around to sending off to anyone. Some are okay but others a not so good but I will upload them for completeness. Something for lockdown anyway ;). For Friday (17th April 2020) I will upload the two BASIC games published by Home Computing Weekly magazine.
