Mike's Exbasic

Extended the existing Basic programming language of the Commodore 64 with 65+ new instructions.  I had to write an assembler / 6502 machine code compiler to let me write assembler source in compressed form, without which I couldn't write a program of this size on the limited amount of memory the C64 provided.  This ambitious project won the Micromasters Holland contest with 1700+ participants back in the mid 80's when I was 17.
