Thomas we need to have a bong competition one day. I mean Pong!:)
Linda...I think it's pretty hard to find a Pong game anymore...that said...I totally accept your bong challenge!
We had one, but sold it on Ebay a few months ago! I wish Docmo would have posted this question sooner!
Awesome - I remember writing one on BASIC. - not too dissimilar to yours on an old IBM. Unix console. The sense of achievement was amazing!
Yes Docmo - this was all very new technology and most folks assumed they would never have their own computer, in their house, so, being a high school dropout, I was quite pleased with myself . . . though, friends thought I must certainly be a genius.
i programmed a fair number of BASIC games. Did you ever try your hand at creating tge classic Lunar Lander game? There was code for it floating around some early home computer mags.
But the first games i programmed were low-Res graphics!
Centipede will always be my favorite video game, followed very closely by Tetris.
