Nothing beats machine language (ML) for computer game speed and power. The native language of your Commodore 64 or 128 ML makes possible frost-action arcade games and sophisticated simulations.


The seven games in this book are written entirely in machine language

  • Nessie puts you behind a camera in search of the famed Loch Ness monster.

  • Campaign Manager simulates the making of a president from nomination to election day

  • Heat Seeker sets you in the cockpit of a jet chased by deadly homing missiles

  • Laser Beam sends your character scurrying across a chaotic field of bouncing balls.

  • Whirlybird rebounds eggs from the bricks below. Let one get by you and the trouble begins

  • Miami Ice is a nightmare of slick ice, a sliding car, and guardrails that fill the windshield


All seven games are ready to type in with our machine language entry program. "MLX * You don't have to know anything about machine language.
