10 THE WINNERS
The staff of ANALOG pick their 7 favorite Atari games.
(The winner might surprise you!)
BASIC game for 16K Cassette or Disk. You're a bug
being chased around by strawberries.
ML Arcade game (generated from BASIC program; Assembler
listing also given). Bacterial invaders try to remove
the brain cells of world leaders (are we making an
assumption here?). You must stop them. Very
reminiscent of the arcade game "Ripoff".
51 WHAT IS IT?
BASIC children's game for 16K Cassette, 24K disk. For
children 5-10 yrs old. Type in the name of the
object pictured, with or without clues.
Short BASIC program that modifies DOS to run a file
with any name you specify as if it was an AUTORUN.SYS
59 AUTO LINE NUMBERING +
BASIC/ML program (16K) that lets you automatically
number your BASIC program lines as you type them
in. Also keeps other useful info, such as number
of variable names left and memory left, on the
screen as you type.
72 CON TEXT
BASIC utility (16K) that converts files created
by "Letter Perfect" and converts them to normal
DOS files (so they can be used with other Atari
word processors, such as Text Wizard).
82 STARS 3-D IN ACTION!
A rewrite of the "Stars 3-D" Demo (Analog 16), written
in ACTION!. If you haven't seen this demo, it is
definitely worth typing in in either the BASIC or ACTION
86 BOUNCE IN ACTION!
A rewrite of the "Bounce" demo (Analog 15), written
BASIC/Assembler program, Stands for "Scrolling Screen Editor".
Needs 32K disk system. Edit a screen simply by typing in the
characters and saving to disk...and allows you to scroll.
