    Definitely for beginners. The program in this blog reminds me of those books in the 80s that I could get from the library about 25 or 50 simulation games in basic. I think they were also printed in 3-2-1 Contact magazine for a while. Are people producing those materials still for people just starting out?

      Are you thinking of these books, by any chance? :)

        The program in this blog reminds me of those books …

        I used to read a lot of those books (and magazines) too. Good fun and learning. In those days resources were limited, so you had to do more with less. E.g. I remember buying a book about the assembly language of a personal computer (Commodore 64); it had the entire listing of an assembler (in BASIC, using POKE statements). (Also, the book was written by a teenager, IIRC :) I spent some days manually entering the entire listing into the PC. Had to restart from the middle a couple of times due to typos. Finally got it done and could write and run some small assembly language programs.

        Are people producing those materials still for people just starting out?

        Probably. I do, on a small scale, via some of my blog posts.

        Here’s a guy who writes such books:
