L.E.M.: yet another Lunar Lander new game

Recommended Posts

Before discovering Turbo-Basic XL and programming Cookie Monster, I have made a *simple* Lunar Lander game in Atari Basic called L.E.M.

EDIT

I attach version 1.1: it is identical to the original release but, thanks to Tezz, there is a new autoboot routine that doesn't display awful READY, POKE and RUN "D:...".

I also attach Antic magazine's program ("Autogo.bas") that creates an AUTORUN.SYS able to load whatever basic program you want.

 

EDIT 2

I attach version 1.2: it is identical to the original release but there is (another!) autoboot routine that displays "LOADING LEM.BAS"; I think it's the correct solution.

I attach ANALOG magazine's program ("RUNAUTO.BAS") that creates AUTORUN.SYS able to load whatever basic program you want.

LEM_v1.1.zip

AUTOGO.zip

LEM_v1.2.zip

I don't remember playing one of those on my 800XL ever... it's going to make a nice addition.

Going through my files, I just came across a program I wrote named "LEM.3D" which is an animation of a wireframe "lander"... didn't remember it, but this is my disk with all the 3D stuff I made over 15 years ago.

Pretty cool - and nice job! The only complaint I have is that your ship really shouldn't crash with stars presumably lights years away just by passing in front of them. :D

With your post you make me remember that I was not very good in astronomy (and in mathematics too) when I was attending high school!

The pixels seems stars but in fact are detritus (line 490 REM TERRAIN AND DETRITUS).

Detritus over the Moon? :?

Here is Atarimania's Lunar Lander's genre games page:

http://www.atarimania.com/lst_soft-MENU-8-...ILLE_ID-28.html

 

My game isn't surely the best one but at least the name is original:

L.E.M. Lunar Excursion Module

 

Sound more plausible the 'Shredded Wheat' in my brother's Lunar Lander. :D Available here.

Seems very interesting.

Can you send me this game in another format (not .cas)?

My Atari800Win Plus 4.0 emulator crashes when I attach tape.

 

EDIT

To add more confusion to the mix, here's the Lunar Lander I did about 22 years ago http://www.atarimania.com/detail_soft.php?...ERSION_ID=13848

Very interesting too!

Instead of detritus or 'Shredded Wheat' your Moon has many asteroids!

Hahaha... wasn't aware of that Lunar Lander games are kind of "Hello world"... my first one was "Space Invaders" on Atari... with player shooting at 1 (!) enemy... ;) done in basic...

Strange,

when you go to Atarimania (8Bit section) and search for Kemal Ezcan they list at least two Lunar Lander versions (allthough Kemal did program some more of them). But if you search for Lunar Lander, Kemal`s titles are not listed there...
