Code the Classics is the perfect gift for anyone with fond memories of the video games of the 1970s and 1980s, and it’s also a brilliant way for young coders to get into understanding the code mechanics behind gaming, helping to inspire them to create their own.

The book looks great. Will you have a digital version for sale as well?
I believe so, but IMO you *really* want the physical version. It’s a thing of beauty.
As much as I’d love to have the physical format, if I get this, I might as well get another one and another one… and the problem is I don’t have enough room for the whole RasPi/MagPi library. :P
So it would be great if it popped up in Google Play. Downloadable PDF, for my big PC screen, even better.
Thanks to everyone involved in this book! We need more of these. :D
The review mentions interviews with developers from the ’80s. I was writing stuff for Comodore and Atari back then and wondered if it is anyone I might know.
A couple of first-party Atari titles in there (Pong and Centipede). Also Bubble Bobble (Taito), Frogger (Konami) and Sensible Soccer (erm, Sensible Software).
This was an insta-buy when I saw this this morning. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!
Will we be able to pick it up in the Pi Store too?
Well I’ve seen the promo video and had to buy it, and as it has “Jon Hare” hopefully from Sensible Soccer, the best soccer game ever made, just seen the retro gaming book as well so bought that, I see there is a volume 2 for next year another must buy if this is good.
Is that available only for UK?
Will they ship it to India?
If the coding bits are all I’m after, would this book or Retro Gaming with Raspberry Pi be the better choice?
