Back To AppleSoft BASIC: Check Out This Awesome Emulator That Runs In Your Browser!

AppleSoft BASIC was a programming language invented by Steve Wozniak before I was even born, and now you can go retro and experience what life was like with an Apple II using an awesome emulator available in any browser, Cult of Mac reports. It allows you to write your own programs, and if you don’t know BASIC, you can try out some pre-written programs including games like Hangman.

It’s worth giving it a try and it should keep you occupied for a good few minutes at least. Cult of Mac gives a bit of background:

When the original Apple I and Apple II computers hit the market, they weren’t the only invention of creator Steve Wozniak. Woz’s goal from the get go was that the Apple II should be able to run a faithful reproduction of Breakout, the game he had helped code for Atari before the formation of Apple. Thus was born Integer BASIC, which shipped on every Apple I and II and eventually lead to Applesoft BASIC, the first computer language most people growing up in the 80s and even early 90s ever learned.

If anything it’s your chance to experience a bit of history, so I’d definitely give it a go.
