Retro Gamer Magazine #100 Type In Homebrew game.

One thing I noticed as I hit the half way point, is that the original C64 keyboard isn’t actually that bad to type on. It’s weird really as I always remembered it being a right bugger! Glad this isn’t a type in for the ZX81….or gulp, ZX80

Oh and one other thing –

When entering lines of code that uses  copius amounts of the character ‘, comma’,  make sure you’ve got one finger on it all the time as I found out the hard way and realised I’d actually typed the full stop character instead for about 20 lines. Lots of profanity followed and put the cursor, insert/delete keys to good use.
