Although I don't technically have the original code any more my first program was on a BBC micro in the early 80s and was basically copied by hand out the Usborne book "Write Your Own Fantasy Games For Your Microcomputer". I was pleasantly surprised to find that Usborne have released all these 1980s books as free PDFs (link to PDF for those interested). Maybe a new project for me to recreate this!

I like the approach of making games to learn how to code, when I decided to learn some lisp I went with Land of Lisp(never finished it, but I'd like to get back to it). I might give the book you mentioned a try as well, it looks like a gem
