First published in 1983, this easy-to-follow guide to the Commodore 64 teaches users forty machine code routines for use in their own programs, enabling them to extend their skills well beyond the limits of BASIC. Not only is this remastered version perfect for hobbyists and collectors, it is also a highly useful resource for those interested in programming retro games and utilities.

The programs in the book include everything from graphics routines such as pixel scrollers to memory management and sound production tools. Written by C64 expert Mark Greenshields, this piece of retro computing history helped many aspiring programmers on their way to mastering their craft.
