This is the collector's hardback edition of Building Blocks for BBC GamesFirst published in 1984, this book helped many a budding coder get to grips with the BBC Micro computer, a machine first released in 1981 as part of the BBC Computer Literacy project. Gently introducing the reader to the concept of programming - something that was totally new to many people at the time - the book is fondly remembered by those who read it back in the 1980s. It is still a useful reference guide for anyone interested in the foundations of retro computer programming, or as a nostalgic text for fans of the BBC's much-loved computer.* * *As the original publisher Melbourne House wrote: Building Blocks for BBC Games is the book for all BBC enthusiasts Using a unique modular method you can create and build exciting, original games and programs.The ready-made building block system has all the procedures you need. Step-by-step you write a BASIC program with the minimum of effort. Then you can expand your programs with even more procedures and innovations into complex and exciting routines.Follow the projects set out, or create whatever games you can imagine.Simply written, easy to follow, with BBC Building Blocks you will learn more about your micro than you believed possible.* * *Acorn Books is proud to present its Retro Reproduction Series, a collection of classic computing works from the 1980s and 90s, lovingly reproduced in the 21st century. From standards of programming reference no self-respecting microcomputer programmer would be without, to obscure works not found in print anywhere else, these modern reprints are perfect for any connoisseur of retro computing.
