Chomper (Packman) - by Anthony Yarrell/QBasicLover
Who is Anthony Yarrell (goes by QBasicLover)? Here is his bio in his own words...
"I (Anthony Yarrell, a.k.a. QBasicLover) am an office support worker in the health insurance industry. I became a hobbyist (amateur) programmer starting with QBasic under MS-DOS 6.22 "back in the day". Now I program primarily in Microsoft Visual Basic 2010, Microsoft Small Basic, and Java. My goal is to create my own versions of the classic games that I grew up with in the 1980s & 90s (Atari games, Commodore 64 games, early Nintendo games, Vectrex, etc), not only for my own pleasure, but also for educational purposes in the Microsoft Small Basic forum."
