I get all my Commodore 64 setup on CHRISTmas day that is the first thing
that I am going to start working on. The one I am doing is *" THE DRAGON
OF DOOM "* I have been brushing up on my coding skills with old books
like BASIC COMPUTER GAMES AND SUCH...
In a similar vein, I found in the used book store by my house a year
or two ago, "The Bytes Brothers" Volume 2. Billed as a
"Solve-it-yourself computer mystery, it takes you through a story,
with clues, the idea is to write a basic program to solve some of the
puzzles through-out the book. It's pretty simple stuff, but would be
perfect for an 8-9 year old just learning some BASIC on their family's
home computer. I've looked around for these and haven't found these
in any other used stores.
...and now that I check amazon, the entire series of these is out
there for about a penny a piece, I may have to burn a Christmas
dollar, literally just one to get the rest.
I see now that I completely mis-read your original post.....sorry for my
off-topic reply. Best of luck in your quest!
