This is a demo implemented in 32 bytes. But the main focus is on the hardware:
32 dip-switches with 8 bits each, the demo can be keyed in without any kind of
development system. We call it DSPROM (Dip-Switch Programmable Read Only Memory).
Insert the 32 bytes ROM and be happy. If it does not work, try the 2k
version, which is just the 32 bytes repeating over and over, 64 times in total.
(The real hardware does this also: 128 mirrors of the 32 bytes.)
Note: This demo is SuperCharger compatible.
