Type-in listings were a key part of 8-bit home computer culture, both in Europe and across the pond in the States.

Here’s an example from the latter days of Atari User magazine; a machine code type-in known as Maniac Mover. Check it out in the video below, and don’t forget to subscribe on YouTube for more.
