A classic card game for Atari 8-bit Computers by Mark Reilly

Casino Solitaire is a version of the classic card game known as Klondike Solitaire. It was writen in Atari BASIC and should run on all Atari 8-bit home computers. It also runs very well on some of the Atari 8-bit emulators for Windows.

System Requirements
On the Atari 800 or 400 you must have the Atari BASIC cartridge installed. On later models (XL & XE) BASIC is built in. You will also need a joystick connected to port 1.

Background
I originally wrote this game in 1985. I submitted it to A.N.A.L.O.G magazine and it was accepted for publication but was never published.

Recently, I decided to make a few improvements to my old code. This version now loads the custom font and machine language routines from disk rather than read them from DATA statements. This made startup much quicker. I also added an auto-finish feature which gives a satisfying reward to a game well played. I hope you enjoy this fun and, until now, unreleased game.
