1. Imagine I have written something very clever. Now imagine it is so profound that it changes your perception on software, robotics and life. 2. To say I have an addiction to writing software would be an understatement. Software, robotics, backpacking. 3. My life, my way. Welcome to ... my world.
Published my first demo video of Bouncy Ball just in time for Xmas. I decided to make it xmas themed after hearing about another Coco coder, John Linville made a game called Xmas Rush. It had evil snowmen that you had to save xmas trees from. That also helped me figure out what my story line would be. Since John was busy saving the trees in the forest, the evil snowmen stole everyones xmas trees from their homes, and brought them back to snowman's land.
Hiked Percival and Morgan Holderness, NH, 43.791241,-71.544667. Distance: 5.9mi and 4:40 round trip. Temps where high of 55F clear and windy.
Clear day, great hike with Pauline and myself. Wasn't expecting the challenges we went up against. The caves, while a little awkward to get into, were actually quite large. The part that scared the crap out of both me and Pauline was the ladders going down.
I have started coding in assembly on my Coco. Well, more accurately I am coding in 6809 assembly, and running the machine language on my Coco emulator. So far it hasn’t disappointed. It’s actually easier to code in then on my PC–1360. A lot easier. It’s like a loaded sports car vs a stock Kia. I decided my first program will be a simple math program, and the machine language will complement, BASIC. The main math game will be basic, but I will have machine language routines for speeding up drawing to the screen.
Tog vs Dino
Available in the Apple App Store.
In this retro blast from the past, relive the action of 80's style hand held games!
A caveman has to eat right? Besides, that big 'ol dinosaur isn't going to miss one or two eggs will she?
Play Tog, the daring Neanderthal as he dodges lava rocks and avoids getting his eggs stolen by pterodactyls flying overhead.
Get close, but not too close, and use Tog's trusty hatchet to knock Dino into dream land and bring her eggs back to Tog's cave. Dispatch a similar fate to the pterodactyls before they steal Tog's hard earned eggs, while he is away from his cave.
