BASIC Programming

I just brought back memories of my school days in the 80s in computer programing classes when you could actually create your own programs on true floppy discs.  In Apple Basic I once wrote a program called “Green Slime”…it was basically a choose your own adventure. When you typed
> RUN
it said:
GREEN SLIME COMING, WHAT WILL YOU DO? CHOOSE: 1. RUN, 2. FIGHT, 3. TALK.
>
> 3
YOU TALK TO THE SLIME AS IT OVERTAKES YOU AND DISSOLVES YOU IN A SLOW HORRIBLE DEATH. THE END.
>
> RUN
GREEN SLIME COMING, WHAT WILL YOU DO? CHOOSE: 1. RUN, 2. FIGHT, 3. TALK.
>
> 1
YOU RUN AWAY BUT IT IS STILL HEADING FOR YOUR HOUSE AND FAMILY. THEY WILL BE DISSOLVED. WHAT WILL YOU DO? CHOOSE: 1. RUN, 2. FIGHT, 3. TALK.

YOU RUN AWAY BUT IT IS STILL HEADING FOR YOUR HOUSE AND FAMILY. THEY WILL BE DISSOLVED. WHAT WILL YOU DO? CHOOSE: 1. RUN, 2. FIGHT, 3. TALK.
>
> 1
YOU RUN AWAY. THE GREEN SLIME REACHES YOUR HOUSE AND FAMILY. THEY ARE GRUESOMELY DISSOLVED, YOU NOW LIVE ALONE YOU COWARD. IN ENDLESS GRIEF AND SELF-LOATHING YOU FALL ON YOUR SWORD. THE END.

> 2
THE GREEN SLIME DISSOLVES YOUR SWORD. WHAT WILL YOU DO? CHOOSE: 1. RUN, 2. FIGHT, 3. TALK.

Good times. 🙂
