The First Text Adventure Game I Ever Wrote


Spy was the first adventure game I ever wrote. I was inspired to write my own after I got the Second Rainbow Book of Adventures and the accompanying cassette. It was written while I was a high school freshman, and it's a snapshot of my young self. The game is presented here with a few bug fixes and minor changes.

Trying to write in assembly language for the CoCo.

I'm working on re-creating my BASIC game Air Raid which appeared in the  Novices' Niche section of the Rainbow. A video of the progress follows. I need to add a lives counter and some sound effects, as well as a title and other niceties.

Ported my Solitaire game "Darn It!" to the MC-10


In what can best be described as a fit of insanity, I ported my solitaire game Darn It! to the MC-10. If the emulator can be believed, it will fit into an original 4K MC-10. It will also work on a Color Computer 1 and 2. I have enclosed the DARNIT.C10 file for the MC-10 and a DARNIT.DSK file for the Color Computer 1 & 2.

Tandy Color Computer BASIC games I published in my youth.



This is different from other things on this site. This is a collection of programs I published in magazines for the Tandy Color Computer family of computers in my youth.

Get the programs here.

Included are the BASIC programs for the Tandy Color Computer that I created in my youth and were actually published in the premier Color Computer Magazine, The Rainbow.
