Exploring adventures on the Commodore 64 + second book

£9.99

Product description

This book is in good condition, only a little foxing on the edge of the pages.

This is a complete look at the fabulous world of Adventure Games for the Commodore 64 Computer. Starting with an introduction to adventures, and their early history, it takes you gently through the basic programming necessary on the 64 before you can start writing your own games.

Inputting information, room mapping, movement, vocabulary - everything required to write an adventure game is explored in detail. There follow a number of adventure scenarios, just to get you started, and finally three complete listings written specially for the 64, which will send you off into wonderful worlds where almost anything can happen.

The three games listed in this book are available on one cassette.

The second book, A beginners Guide to The Commodore 64, is a guide to simple programming which can be used by anyone - of any age. It is in good condition.
