This page is devoted to all the Commodore 64 fans that love Basic programming. In here you will find a lot of cool Commodore 64 Basic programs, games, etc. The point of this page is to share what other contributors have created on their systems and would like to invite others to do the same.
Car Race Random Outcome
Our first contributor comes from Norway. He has written several Commodore 64 Basic programs for your enjoyment. This first example which he titled “Car Race Random Outcome” demonstrates sprites racing against each other in a “fight to the finish”. Watch as they drive across the screen one by one, line up, and then the space bar starts the race and see who wins!
The second game received by Stein Ove is called “Mirror Horror”. This one had to be explained for me to grasp it. Your cannon (blue character) is placed in a maze among monsters (red characters). You can use the Z and X keys to control the mirror. The main objective is to kill as many monsters, which is accomplished by lining up the mirrors to meet the monsters in a path.
z = Pick up a Mirror.
x = Put down a Mirror
Arrow keys = Move your Player
Space bar = shoot at a monster
Stein Ove BrattHammer wrote his first sprite program on his Commodore 64 in the 1990’s using a guide from the book Commodore User Manual. During that experience, he learned how to calculate the bytes that were placed in memory (via a POKE statement). He also learned about sprite dimensions, multi color sprites, and how they are constructed on a chart. You can check out his Commodore 64 Page to learn more about him and his journey.

Steve has always had a passion for computers even before I owned one. His first personal computer was an Atari 65xe purchased at Children's Palace around 1986. In later years he attended DeVry University and received a Computer Science degree and worked as a Web Developer for a short season.
