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.
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.
