How to Play

Control your airplane and destroy every battleship that comes from the top of the screen. Turn left with ‘;’ and right with ‘:’, and drop bombs with the Space Key.
If you FUEL reaches 0 or you get hit by one of the battleships’ anti-aircraft fire or an aircraft carrier’s missile, you lose 1 airplane. The game ends when you reach 0 planes.

About the Program

This program is divided into 2 sections: one containing both the machine code and character data, and the other containing the main program. Since the data part contains machine code, make absolutely sure you don’t make any mistakes while typing it in. After you finish typing in this data, SAVE it to tape before anything else, since all the DATA will erase itself after RUNning.
I think iyou should also save the main BASIC part to tape right after you type it in.
To start the game, LOAD and RUN listing 1, then LOAD and RUN listing 2.


Dr. D: I’ve been noticing that a lot of users of computers with 6502s that make 8-way scrolling programs can also code in machine language.
Editor: Isn’t that because of how easy the 6502 is to understand?
Dr. D: This VIC program still is high-level, but even then, do you think at this rate we’ll end up seeing an all-machine language one? This bombing game’s listing seems to suggest that, in my opinion.
