Episode #012 - Decisions
The player has been hit by the monster…
90 points of damage has been inflicted.
What happens next?
Maybe the shield was destroyed. Or even the player has been killed…
We won't know for sure until we figure out how to program IF STATEMENTS in assembly…
This episode WILL teach you that!
You will learn how to:
- effectively make 'if statements' in assembly
- trigger C, V and N flags
- use BCS, BCC, BVS, BVC, BMI and BPL instructions
And you will find out if the player has been killed ;)

I learned assembly the hard way, with only limited documentation. Although part of the fun is in discovering all these things yourself, I think such screencasts could have helped me in getting up to speed faster. They do contain some nice bits of information :)
64bites brings me closer to understanding a computer I learned to love long ago, and still do. More than anything, it is really fun to follow the lessons and I always look forward to the next episode with great anticipation. It is the best thing since chocolate.
I enjoyed both narration and realisation.
Actually, I was really shocked to have so much fun watching a programming screencast!
How much time did you spend playing games on your Commodore c64? 64bites is more than 8-bit childhood memories, its a way to keep your beloved C64 alive, let's make our own game with it.
This is really cool. I don't know exactly how popular it will end up being, but there is always room online for things like this.
Having watched a few episodes, I reiterate my original position: sooooooo coool. And Michal have really done a top-notch job on writing, production, audio, everything.
