I want to make a game that runs on the master system.

I have almost never typed a program before. I have typed in BASIC while looking at a book a long time ago.
I have never built a program from scratch by myself.
But I wanted to make a game that runs on the Master System.
Should I start with the Maxim lessons first?

Your options are assembly, C, ZX Basic, a game generator like twee2sam, or a game editor like kidded. These are all at different levels of flexibility in terms of what you can achieve, and difficulty to achieve it.

so basically it's all about - do you want to learn some programming language in the process or not? because you could have a game running without committing to that if you want, but maybe you want to use the experience to learn how to program...

choice is yours! :)

Thanks for the reply.
I'll try to learn from the tutorial first and make it.
