First Graphics game written for a home computer
« on: March 31, 2012, 19:38:25 PM »


First Home Computer Game 1975

Scott's game used the original graphics interface of the computer that Richard modeled after the design of Don Lancaster's TV typewriter presented in the Radio Electronics Magazine in 1973. It had a display of 16 lines of 32 characters each. Scott's first game, documented here, was written with the original 16 x 32 non-bitmapped layout.
