I definitely learned one important lesson from the C64.

Fond memories of one sibling reading code out of a print magazine while the other typed the 4 page program into the C64...

Last statement entered and
RUN

system freezes.
Break key does nothing! nooo....

Type it in again.

Last statement entered and
RUN

system freezes again!
Break key does nothing! noooooooooooooo....

Type it in for a THIRD time!
LESSON LEARNED!
SAVE the program first!

RUN
system freezes. nooooo problem.
LOAD the program

Must debug before we can play the game!
This is back in the old school magazine type face days where a number 1 and a lower case L/l were identical glyphs!

Something with a FOR loop was typed with a 1 or an l switched.

After the fix was implemented,
RUN

Play Castle Dungeon and save the castle by disarming the bombs while avoiding lions and pits.

It was a great program to dissect as it included maze generation, sprite(graphic blob) usage, joystick input, and a few sound effects.
