Chicken--A Great Game


Why did the chicken cross the road?

To lay an egg.

Actually, our chicken is trying to score points by getting safely across this busy highway. Each time he makes it adds to his score, but the cars go faster and faster. If he gets hit, the SPCA sends an ambulance and the cops slow the traffic down for a while.

This clever game can be yours for the copying, courtesy of Stan Ockers, who wrote it in BASIC and Assembly language and Mike Dunn, editor of ACE Newsletter (Eugene, Oregon), who printed it first, and gave us permission to pass it on to you.

The game is "in the public domain," meaning you can do anything you want with it except sell it.

We intend to bring you entertaining and useful programs that are in the public domain as a regular feature of our magazine.
