Been doing simple demo effects for the #C64 as warming up for some proper coding. I 💖 the close-to-the-metal feeling of coding 6502 (well, 6510 technically) machine language!
Been looking at some Bees And Bombs style animations to implement in 6510 machine language. Fooled myself a couple of times. "Okay, just rotate this 180 degrees" is a oneliner in modern computerings, but on 8 bit microcomputers you'd have to calculate the pixels of each frame, the draw the frame, calculate the next one, etc.
It's like a purple dungaree wearing housewife with orange hair and a 90s synthesiser vomits incense into your ears. It's relaxing.
Fun fact! 🎉This opinion is much more unpopular on Twitter!
