Creating computer arcade-style games isn't easy. That's especially true of games that have everything-speed, great play action, and a high entertainment value. Only with machine language (ML), the native language of your computer, can all this be achieved.
You'll find seven games in this book. All are written entirely in machine language.
Space Arena puts you in a futuristic shoving match where the slightest mistake means your spaceship is twisted metal.
Saloon Shootout lets you blast mugs, plink at mice, and plug playing cards in a game for shootists of all ages.
Prisonball puts you in a world where bricks and balls come and go, furiously.
Q-Bird makes you responsible for a defenseless baby bluebird who's the entree for a flock of hungry predators.
Bump-N-Run may make friends into enemies as you and an opponent catch, steal, and shoot a ball.
Ringside Karate has everything you need to kick, jab, punch, and block your way to a black belt.
Eagles and Gators is a constant struggle between eagles and alligators with 16 sprites and clever animation.
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.
But if you're interested in—or already know how to program in-ML, More Machine Language Games offers the complete source code for each game, just as it was written by the original programmer. You can learn a great deal by studying these exceptional programs.
We've even included a complete (and fast) machine language assembler-a program that helps you write in machine language.
Seven fast-action arcade games. Illuminating source code. An assembler. If you like games, like to program in ML, or both, COMPUTE!'s More Machine Language Games for the Commodore 64 is the book for you.
