# Apple 1 "Worple"
<img src="" width="400">
A Wordle-style puzzle game for the Apple 1. Features over 850 words, but small enough to run on systems with as little as 4K of RAM.
## Files in the Repo:
* **worple.asm**
* The 6502 assembly language source code
* I used [dasm]( to assemble this, but other 6502 assemblers should work without too much tweaking
* **worple.bin**
* Assembled binary file
* The first two bytes in the file are the (little-endian) origin address of the code: $0300
* **worple.js**
* Javascript "tape file" format, compatible with Will Scullin's [Apple 1js emulator](
* You can use this with a local copy of the emulator by putting the file in the `/tapes` directory and adding a reference to it in `apple1.htm`
* **worple.txt**
* Typed version of program in "Woz Monitor" hex format
* Many emulators will let you copy/paste or otherwise load this in
* You can also send this over to a real Apple 1 (or replica/clone) via serial connection
* Once loaded in, enter `300R` to run
* **words.txt**
* Text file of words used by the game
* **words_0.bin and words_1.bin**
* Compressed binary versions of the word list, split into two parts (A-P and Q-Z)
* ****
* Python utility that creates the compressed binary word files
## Modifying the Word List
* Edit `words.txt` as you see fit. (If your list exceeds 866 words, more than 4K of RAM will be required.)
* Run `` to shuffle the word list and rebuild the two binary word files
* Reassemble `worple.asm` to build a new executable binary with the new words in it
