> Oh, yeah basic, that was hard. real hard. And sooooooooo, much time.
Basic is quite easy.. Well, unless you want to do things like gfx or music in C64 (oh the glorious Poke)..
It was quite a steep step to start making machine code routines. with pokes + sys command. In the end, I'm happy that is no longer necessary.
It was when I was at school. Started making little games when I was 8, 9, 10 and it was long, hard, work with no instant gratification of a completed game. (I had no money to buy games, and games were scarce anyways, so decided to make my own)
I used something else too, but for the life of me, can't remember what language it was.
Fun days those.
