Suicide Express (C64) cover made with PO-28 Robot

I recently got for birthday present a Pocket Operator PO-28 Robot. It’s a pocket synthesizer with sounds that remind me of C64’s SID sounds.   I made a short cover of Commodore 64’s Suicide Express tune with it. For me it is an unforgetable tune. The cover is only 30 seconds loop.. In the videoContinue reading “Suicide Express (C64) cover made with PO-28 Robot”

Bouncing of the ball when it touches the Bat (80s Krakout style)

It’s night when I’m writing this. I came up with a little Monkey X tutorial on how to program the bouncing of the ball, when it touches the bat in the “old school way” — like in the popular C64 game Krakout in the 80s. In the video for the tutorial you can see, that asContinue reading “Bouncing of the ball when it touches the Bat (80s Krakout style)”
