Elon’s attempt at creating a video game in the 80s

While the other ten-year-olds were trying to ride a bike and cope with different skills, Musk was busy developing a game in his room. At 12, he developed Blastar, a space shooter game. The game was created using the Commodore Vic-20 computer and is still available to play. Elon sold the code to a computer magazine and made $500 from it.
