More on Game of Life in 6510 assembler

6 Dec 2016 12:02:09 software

As it turned out, I never released the sources for the second generation of my Commodore 64 version of Conway’s Game of Life. Unlike the earlier version, this second attempt packs four cells per byte. While it adds to the complexity, it also reduces time spent in data retrieval by a lot. This version uses lookup tables to count live cells by using a lookup table on zero-page.

Get the sources. You may also read an earlier entry and/or see the earlier version(s).
