Super Disk Bonus


King Keno Super Bonus

If you enjoy playing Cheapo Keno, this issue's Game of the Month, you'll also want to try your luck with Antic's King Keno July Super Disk Bonus. King Keno is a bigger and more colorful version of the popular bingo-like game. A compiled BASIC program, King Keno delivers most of the speed and power of a pure machine language program. But you don't need any programming language, even BASIC, to run it on 8-bit Atari computers with 48K memory.

King Keno was programmed by Len Shikowitz of San Francisco. The compiled listing is 198 sectors long. If it was printed in the magazine it would consist of at least six pages with nothing but solid-packed data statements.

King Keno is on Side B of this month's Antic Disk. The game has its own built-in Help file which you can select from King Keno's first screen.

To use King Keno, copy KENO.EXE to another disk that contains the DOS 2 files DOS.SYS and DUP.SYS. Put this disk in your drive, remove all cartriidges (XL/XE owners press [OPTION] and turn on your Atari. King Keno will automatically load and run.
