For those of you who don't know, Stan Ockers is the
acknowledged master of public domain programs and here is a collection
of some of his best Stan recently deserted BASIC for a while to write in
the new language ACTION! When you see the ACTION! programs on this disk
you will see why. Such speed without machine language! (Action cartridge
not required). FROG is a big frog trying to catch insects with his
tongue! RATS is a great climbing game in ACTION that allows you to
design your own screens. BATS has you flying through caves to catch the
bats. LIFE is one of the all time computer classics but written in
ACTION so it's very fast. SLOTS is a slot machine for the addicts who
play the bandits and HELL is a good demo of fine scrolling whose code
you could use in your own programs. WORMS is another classic, Angle
worms, but so fast in ACTION and finally a space attack type game,
MISSILE in which you must defend your bases.
Autoboot with BASIC. System Reset will reboot.
