Freddy the Frog - re-write - 30 years over due :-)

Postby uniforix » Sun Sep 17, 2017 4:23 pm

Hi all

When I was 10 I wrote a game on my Electron called Freddy the Frog, even went to the length to print it to send to Electron User but never did, then it was lost forever when my parents passed my Electron on when I got an Amiga.

Long story short... I'm re-writing it, exactly as I remember it, first in BASIC and then hope to learn some Assembly and improve and do some more games.

I will post updates here but I'm also bring back my website Electron Forever (http://www.electronforever.co.uk) and you can also see details on facebook when I can keep posting updates too. It's not going to be a professional game by any standards but thought I'd have fun trying to re-create it and who knows what :-) FB page is here if anyone want's to follow that https://www.facebook.com/electronforever/

Only just started it this weekend and 30 years means I'm re-learning, attached a few images.

Looking good! You've come to the right place to learn some assembly language.

Thanks sydney :-) I'm sure I'll definitely need to get some expert advice ! I've currently armed myself with a large catalog of Electron User magazines to mull over whenever I get some time.

I'm looking forward to playing this one. It's got a piece of the '80s in it!
