GAME APPLE ][

ver 3.2.1 by H. Ohta 10/1983

GAME is the abbreviation for General Algorithmic Micro Expressions, and it is a computer language like the APPLE ][ INTEGER BASIC. Its source code is normally executed by an interpreter, but the code is able to be faster executed by a compiler.

Download the master disk image files, GAMEAPPLEII.DSK and GAME65816.DSK (56K. Aug. 1, 2003).
If the downloaded file, whose extension is .cpt (Compact Pro), is not expanded automatically, drop it onto the StuffIt Expander.

They will be used on Apple II emulators. The latter runs on the Apple IIGS only, and the former contains many sample programs. The followings appear on the starting-up screen of the master disks except lowercases.

     GAME APPLE ][ IS COMPATIBLE WITH
GAME-APPLE VER 1.2 THAT IS REPORTED IN
ASCII, FEB., 1980, BUT IT IS EXTREMELY
FASTER THAN VER 1.2.  GAME APPLE ][ ALSO
HAS MANY FEATURES AND IMPROVEMENTS, AND
IT IS MORE POWERFUL WITH RELATED
UTILITIES, GAME APPLE ][ COMPILER, SUPER
TEXT ][ AND GAME APPLE DOS, WHICH ARE
INCLUDED IN THIS PACKAGE.

     GAME APPLE DOS IS BASED ON DIVERSI
DOS AND SOME PROGRAMS THIS DISKETTE
CONTAINS ORIGINATE FROM ASCII MAGAZINES.
NOTE THAT A PARTIAL COPYRIGHT MAY BE
HELD BY THEM.  WHEN YOU ENTER SYSTEM
MONITOR FROM GAME APPLE, TYPE 'MN' TO
AVOID A BUG OF (APPLE'S) DOS.

     IT TAKES THE FOLLOWING TIME TO
CALCULATE A NAPIER NUMBER, E, DOWN TO
500 PLACES OF DECIMALS VIA THE PROGRAM
NAMED EXP IN THIS DISKETTE WHEN THE
PROGRAM IS INTERPRETED BY EITHER GAME
APPLE ][ OR GAME-APPLE VER 1.2 WITH
HIGH-SPEED MULTIPLING AND DIVIDING
ROUTINES BY ASCII, APR., 1980.  A
CIRCULAR CONSTANT, PI, DOWN TO 200
PLACES OF DECIMALS IS ALSO CALCULATED
SIMILARLY:

EXP 3'02 4'23

     PRINCIPAL SYNTACTIC DIFFERENCES OF
GAME APPLE ][ FROM GAME-APPLE VER 1.2
ARE DESCRIBED IN THE FOLLOWINGS:

A % FOLLOWED BY TWO LETTERS IS
INTERPRETED AS AN OPTIONAL COMMAND BY
VER 1.2.  UNDER ][, SUCH A % HAS TO BE
DELETED.  SINCE ][ REGARDS TWO LETTERS
NOT FOLLOWED BY A =, EXCEPT FOUR
COMMANDS, AS AN OPTIONAL COMMAND, FOR
EXAMPLE, 'TXCL' IS AVAILABLE, BUT
'%CLA=0' MUST BE REPLACED WITH 'CL A=0'.

THE TERM THAT REPRESENTS A RESIDUE (%)
ALWAYS REQUIRES A FOLLOWING TERM UNDER
VER 1.2, AND A DUMMY TERM, FOR EXAMPLE,
'%A', MUST OFTEN BE USED.  ][ FREES YOU
FROM USING SUCH A DUMMY, AND A DUMMY
SHOULD BE REMOVED RATHER THAN NEEDLESS.

               GAME 65816
 
     GAME 65816 IS FASTER THAN GAME
APPLE ][.  MY GAME 6809, WHICH IS
MUCH FASTER THAN ASCII VERSION OR GAME
FM 7 UNDER THE SAME CLOCK, IS FASTER
THAN GAME APPLE ][.  ALTHOUGH 6809 MPU
HAS A SUPERIOR INSTRUCTION SET, GAME
65816 IS FASTER THAN MY GAME 6809.
 
     GAME 65816 RUNS ON THE APPLE IIGS
OR THE APPLE II WHOSE 6502 MPU IS
REPLACED WITH 65802.  65802 MPU CAN
BE IMPORTED FROM JAMECO ELECTRONICS,
1355 SHOREWAY ROAD, BELMONT, CA 94002,
USA.  GAME 65816 IS DISTRIBUTED BY
HIROFUMI OHTA.  IT IS NOT GAME APPLE
IIGS.  THIS MEANS THAT IT IS ONLY
A GAME INTERPRETER FOR 65802/816 MPU
AND HAS NO APPLE IIGS USER INTERFACES.
