This is a highly modified version of Lunar Lander (Rocket) from 101 Basic Computer Games, where the original has no graphics, this has ASCII graphics with a lot of hidden effects
This will run on an 8k Apple-1 or Mimeo with Basic loaded

I use MESS as my primary Apple 1 emulator because I don’t own an apple 1 replica, nor do I own any type of Apple computer whatsoever. I wanted to be able to load games and programs from the cassette emulation MESS provides but quickly found out .wav files for the Apple 1 emulator were few and far between, and physically typing out several thousand line of code was not an option! Many games I want to play don’t even exist in .wav format!! Microchess is one of those games. The only solution to this problem was simple. I had to learn how to make my own .wav files.

Hook up a +40-60db microphone pre-amp to your stereo (If your TV you are using as a monitor has a good amp built in you may hear something on max volume) or use a bass guitar or PA amp like I am, though I tested my DYNEX 15" TV on max volume and can hear it.
AppleFPGA is a System on a Chip (SOC) based on an unenhanced Apple ][e using the Digilent Spartan 3 Starter board. The Spartan 3 Starter board includes a Xilinx Spartan 3 XCS3s200 FPGA and 1 Meg of static RAM (SRAM). See the Digilent web site for more details of the Starter board. There is no 6502 processor or other peripherals. All functions are derived using the Hardware Description Language (HDL) Verilog.
The Apple1 is a questionable target for a C compiler due to its small memory size and disjointed memory map. The Replica1, on the other hand, is a near perfect single board target with its 32K contiguous RAM and nice I/O expansion. Compare this with what WDC offers as a single board development platform for $695.
