Animation, Games & Sound For The IBM PC
Published in Personal Computer News #061
Animation, Games and Sound is aimed at the newcomer to Basic. It starts with PRINT and goes on to diagonal motion with shadows, for example. There are plenty of sample programs and the explanations are lucid. The listings are clear but there's little in the way of technique or structure. The games given are a bit simple and the graphics limited. Sound gets only one of the 23 chapters; and while Lance Leventhal may have called it "the best personal computing book I have ever seen". I certainly wouldn't.
