Lode Runner Web Game

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/24

Just found out about [Wayback] Lode Runner Web Game:

A HTML5 (CreateJS) remake of Lode Runner

I have played that way too much in my Apple ][ and //e days.

Hopefully I won’t be addicted to it as back in those days.

Just watching the demo mode is soooooo cool!

I remember designing my own lievens, then winning from the local Apple shop (Vlasveld Computers, which also had a country wide Apple magazine). Cool days!

Cool: Apple mini-assembler found inside Woz’ monitor inside Apple II Integer Basic

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/18

From a while back: [WayBack] This week, a mini-demo of the mini-assembler found inside Woz’ monitor inside Apple II Integer Basic. CALL –151 F666G … – mos6502 – Google+

This week, a mini-demo of the mini-assembler found inside Woz’ monitor inside Apple II Integer Basic.
CALL –151
F666G
You can find reconstructed sources in Jeff Tranter’s repo here:
https://github.com/jefftranter/6502/tree/master/asm/Apple%5D%5BMonitor
where we see credits to Steve Wozniak and Allen Baum. But in this oral history it seems the assembler was Baum’s work:
“Baum: So it was brute force, very simple and fit into 256 bytes if you already had the 256-byte disassembler.”

Anyhow, one page of code – or two – is very impressive!

For more info, try searching for F666G! (We wonder at this memorable address – the Apple I price was $666.)

[WayBack] GitHub – dschmenk/apple2pi: Apple II client/server for Raspberry Pi: hybrid computer of a Raspberry Pi inside an Apple II (either ][, or ][+, or //e) so the Apple II can be a front-end to the Raspberry Pi which then can run an Apple IIGS emulator, talk to the Apple II storage hardware and much more.

It can run [WayBack] RASPPLE II: A2CLOUD, A2SERVER, Apple II Pi for Raspberry Pi
