Retrochallenge – The tale of nine games for three retro computers

Three computers: PDP-11/23+, Atari 800 and Epson PX-8!

Three games: Craps, Roulette, and 21!

Three programming languages: Fortran, BASIC and Forth!

For the Retrochallenge Summer 2014, Earl Evans decided to make 9 games: 3 for each computer using three different languages:

  • PDP-11 with Fortran 77
  • Epson PX-8 with BASIC
  • Atari 800 with Forth

He also did an awesome job reporting his adventure on his blog. We are listing his posts in chronological order to make it easier for the reader:
