For those of you who don't know, Stan Ockers is the acknowledged master of public domain programs and here is a collection of some of his best Stan recently deserted BASIC for a while to write in the new language ACTION! When you see the ACTION! programs on this disk you will see why. Such speed without machine language! (Action cartridge not required). FROG is a big frog trying to catch insects with his tongue! RATS is a great climbing game in ACTION that allows you to design your own screens. BATS has you flying through caves to catch the bats. LIFE is one of the all time computer classics but written in ACTION so it's very fast. SLOTS is a slot machine for the addicts who play the bandits and HELL is a good demo of fine scrolling whose code you could use in your own programs. WORMS is another classic, Angle worms, but so fast in ACTION and finally a space attack type game, MISSILE in which you must defend your bases.

Autoboot with BASIC. System Reset will reboot. Hold trigger or key to re-boot to menu. To LIST programs, LOAD "D:filename" and delete line 0 before running.
