Game # 11 : Centipede

So, the next game is Centipede. For a change (and because I dropped Pitfall off the list), I'm going to copy the Atari 2600/VCS version of Centipede.

This has the added advantage that my inability to draw, well, anything, doesn't show up too much. Even I can draw a square and fill it in :)


The first 80x86 Assembler program I wrote was an emulator for the Atari 2600, which is roughly akin to learning to swim by jumping into the middle of the Channel ....... I wrote it in annoyance because the then typical hardware (80386-25 ish) couldn't cope with Stella.
