Nostalgic Posted February 12, 2022 Share Posted February 12, 2022 Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the grass was green, I learned a lot about programming by typing in, reviewing, and tweaking program listings from Antic, A.N.A.L.O.G., and Compute! magazines. I see a lot of fun and interesting games being developed for the Atari 7800 - and it looks like 7800basic is a powerful tool for making development accessible. There are quite a few games with 7800basic source code posted here, so there's definitely an opportunity to analyze and learn from that code. It's almost an embarrassment of riches! So where to start? Which games out there now would be best for somebody to learn 7800basic from? (I know there are some samples that come with 7800basic.) I don't have a particular genre in mind and I'm a professional programmer, so this is about learning 7800 game programming in particular rather than Basic in general (though my Basic is definitely very rusty!). Or put more simply, when you started programming in 7800basic, which other games did you study to learn from? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
