Games in KIM Clone

I had lots of extra space in the two EPROMs, so Farmer Brown and Lunar Lander from The First Book of KIM were added.  One starts at 1800, the other at 1803.

Three-Button Procedure for Lunar Lander

Once the ship begins to drop, let the speed increase to 75 (the far right two digits will climb to 75).  Press 5.  Now just let it fall until 1000 feet, then press 8.  Yes, you’ll be approaching the ground really fast, but you’ll have time.  Once the speed drops to 5 or below, press 5.  Just coast down to a SAFE landing.

There are many other methods to land with minimal input, but this is the easiest for me to remember.
