Fast moving action on the Amstrad with MK Mostowys. WAR OF THE WORMS IN THIS GAME you must guide a snake around the screen using a joystick or keys of your own choice. The object is to collect all the yellow bags of gold and, if possible, the white goblets that appear at random intervals. On no account must you try to collect a red goblet. You are awarded 10 points for every bag collected and one hundred points for a white goblet. If you manage a high enough score you will be invited to enter it in the high score table provided. If you ever manage to reach screen 15 and onwards things get rather difficult. The program is reasonably short and the breakdown of lines give a good idea of how it works. The program could be shortened slightly by substituting various CHR$ references with control codes entered direct. Do not try to run the program until you have typed in and Saved the entire program on tape. The reason being that the call BB03 statement used within the program not only flushes the keyboard buffer as required but also partially disables the Escape key as well. The only way to stop the program once it is running is to wait until you are confronted with the high score table, then ignore the two options given i.e., C to continue and O for key options, and press E instead. 60-220 Main routine.
