While exploring online for a new C64 game, I came across a website with Ahoy magazine downloads. This game was contained in the January 1986 issue and looked promising. It features an animated sprite that must locate gold in 1,100 rooms while avoiding ghosts.
Feel free to use the VICE C64 Emulator below to load up Basic programs or files that were downloaded on this page.
To load a file, click on the menu C64/Attach D64 or you can also drop and drag a .D64 image onto the VICE window and it will load.
Sprites for the Demo
This demo includes several sprites that make up the animation seen as the player moves the sprite around the screen.
The Commodore 64 Basic game actually includes 2 sprites. Each sprite can move pretty quickly too since the movement routines are defined in machine language. In the example below we see the two sprites at odds with each other.
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, works as a Front End Web Developer and is a born again Christian.
Although this is a tech site, I am ashamed of the gospel. I am a sinner saved by the blood of Jesus Christ. If you ever want to talk about salvation, I'm game.
