Learn C64 Assembly

Posted on March 21, 2020  in Retro Games

Learn C64 assembly.

Want to learn how to make a game in Commodore 64 assembly.

Learn C64 assembly

I made my self a new years resolution this year. I wan’t to create atleast one basic game in Commodore 64 and atleast one assembly game in Commodore 64.
 
Back in january I finished my basic game Ticle Tocle, which can be found on this site.
 

While I was learning or relearning C64 assembly I  wrote down all the information I found. And before I knew it, it was writing a book about programming assembly on the Commodore 64.

I will take you through the creation of a Commodore 64 assembly game step by step. You will learn to control sprites, custom charactersets, collison, soundeffect and much more. You can always build on the Cave Diver game and add more levels of your own. It up to you.

You will create a game called Cave Diver when you follow the steps in the book.

 

And as I wan’t to share this with others I put the finished book up for sale.
This book is written by a learner who used to program the Commodore 64 in assembly way back in the eighties, but have forgotten most of it. So what I have learned through this process I have put in the book so that i may teach others who want to learn/relearn C64 Assembly.

 

Before you buy, you can download a free version here.

You can also see this video by GRay Defender where make a review of this book. He plays the game and talks about this book and what it does. So go and see his video.

 

 

You can buy the book here. You get the book as PDF with source code for CBM Prg Studio and for Kick Assembler.

Now also available on Google Books
And also on Amazon
And now on Amazon as paperback

This is my first game for Commodore 64 in more than 30 years, so bare with me if you find some bugs in this game.

 

The game can be played as player vs player and player vs computer.

Just bare in mind that the game AI is nothing like Einstein, but more like Homer Simpson.

You are free to edit the code if you want, there is no restrictions.

 

Download the game as a disk image here.
