Dancing Demon

Written in 1979 by Leo Christopherson for the Radio Shack Model I computer this is possibly the best game ever for it time.

Dancin Demon used Machine Language in BASIC DATA statements a trick which Leo Christopherson pioneered on TRS-80 Model I with Android Nim and Dancing Demon and later Klendathu. When such programs are run, the program modifies itself and a save becomes impossible, but the original version off the original tape or disk can be saved in ASCII or even LLISTed without problem.
