Javascript Games and Toys

One of the things I like to do from time to time, is look up old DOS games written in GWBasic and try to convert them into JavaScript. I like to write little toys that interact or are just plane interesting

Here a few Games and Toys for your surfing pleasure.

Scott Adams Adventure Games – Scott Adams wrote his “Adventure” games between 1978 and 1985. The first games were text-only games with an interpreter written in BASIC. I translated these to JavaScript.

Eliza – not so much a game as a strange kind of AI analyst. The code is very simple, but people have been known to play for hours.

The God Program – Also no a game, but a running script of the output of a God program.

Dick Eyes – A toy where Philip K. Dick, a master of Science Fiction, is brought back to life and his eyes wander around the room.

I have more kicking around, if I could only find them.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
