Here is an idea of what the game is like.

Might be from an Apple machine. Just can't remember. Anyway the game made in the 80's and on a floppy.

It a turtle type of a game to where you command the turtle to draw a line by a using keyboard to type in the commands on which direction and how far to go. I use to play this when I was a kid. My teacher had this game. We all got copies of this. Oh we print out the artworks that the turtle made with the lines. The game been in mind ever since then.

You guys probably never seen this. Just checking to see you know what I'm talking about.

It's a programming language and is called "Logo". You can get it for almost every computer system

IIRC the Amstrad CPC 464 was a popular system that came with an implementation of DR Logo

It's probably easier to name systems that didn't have Logo smile

Phil Bennet: The control unit for the Valiant Turtle (not the turtle itself?) has an undumped 80C49 in it; If you know someone who has a control unit, let us know.

Not included with the 464, since it didn't come with CP/M, which DR Logo ran under. The 6128, and possibly the 664 (not sure if it's included with CP/M 2.2 or not), did include it.
