## Manual n° 1

Entry: High or Low Platform: Amstrad CPC Author: Paolo 'Neurox66' Borzini Language: Locomotive BASIC 1.1 (BASIC 1.0 is good too) Category: PUR-120 INFO: This a recreation of a popular playing card game. The objective is simple, a card is shown, the player will then choose if the next card is going to be Higher or Lower in value to the card shown. After the 41st card the deck is shuffled. I wrote the game directly on my Amstrad CPC 6128 Plus and also tested it on the following models: CPC6128 and 464 Plus. You can type the listing directly on your computer or load the "High_Low.dsk" file via M4 card or Gotek drive. Another possibility is to load the file via emulator, I tested the file via "CPCEmuMacOs" or on the following online emulators: https://www.retrovm.com http://crocods.org/web/ LOADING: Insert disk RUN"HIGHLOW.BAS" INSTRUCTIONS: Press H (High) or L (Low) for guess the value of the next card.
