If you can write computer programs such as Hopper, Starship Command or Snapper then this cassette isn't for you. Most of us will never be able to write programs that good in a million years (Some people don't even want to!). But you can still create a fairly challenging action game, or game of strategy, or whatever appeals to you, without being a micro whizz kid. That's what this cassette is about. It's a way of getting to grips with your micro by means of simple games. Once you have been introduced to using the micro by these, you can try progressing to programming whatever you want to do; be it controlling equipment, calculating tax refunds, or playing better games.
The Me & My Micro television series is a Yorkshire Television Production, written and presented by Fred Harris.
