Commodore 64



The Commodore 64 was the first computer I ever had. I was around 2 at the time. We had it until Dad sold it and got me and my sister an NES. Years later, a few years ago, I saw a Commodore 64 at a local video game shop. I bought it. I didn't do anything much with it. I tried programming it, but it was really hard to do if you're not used to it. Well, I found a Commodore 64 game in my mess of my room. So I thought I'd try programming it again. Eventually I got this on the screen.


I decided to attempt to make the Hamburgers game for the Commodore 64. This is the first and so far only level. You can't pass it because I haven't gotten that far yet.

I will work a little bit on it tomorrow. How could you NOT work on a game about hamburgers on the fourth of July? Anyway, I think I got it so it's working for the most part properly. Here's the story of the game:

"A flock of burgers are attempting to fly to Switzerland. But the Vegetable Air Force are egotistical and think vegetables are better than "junk" food are trying to stop them by shooting peas at the burgers. Little did the Vegetable Air Force know that the burgers could shoot French fries at the evil vegetables."

So now that I think I got it working good, I'm going to get a Kung Fu cartridge so I can test it on a real Commodore 64. Yes, I know, it doesn't look very good. But I thought the black border would be the best option because if I made it blue, I figured people would wonder why the clouds and veggies disappear sooner than they should. It's not my fault. I tried to understand $D010, but I just can't wrap my head around how it works.

And I may change this light blue to a more cyan-color. The Commodore 64 has a palette of only 16 colors, like the Intellivision.

C64 is capable of better graphics but it doesn't look "bad", imo. It's better than 2600 at least. Also, I like your sense of humor.
