Kenneth S. Szajda, Gary Boden, Andy Hayes, Charles Brannon, Robert W. Baker, Tina Halcomb, Douglas Pinho, Jason Lex Thomas, Allen R. Breon, Ed Davis, John Scarborough, L. L. Beh, Dave Sanders, John H. Palevich, E. H. Foerster, Richard Mansfield, Tom R. Halfhill, Orson Scott Card (Foreword)



 

Fifteen games for the Atari computer, complete and ready to type in, so no programming knowledge is necessary.


Here are ten of the best games from COMPUTE! Magazine, including the fast-action, all-machine language "Shoot." Several of these games have been updated and improved since their original appearance in the magazine.


There are also five new never-before-published games, including the fast-action, arcade-style "Chiseler."


Since you can follow the complete BASIC listing, you can see for yourself how programmers create games. Also, several chapters are devoted to showing you just how to program your own games.
