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.

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).
