I think you may be conflating BASIC and LOGO with one another.
A search of Apple II BASIC keywords does not reveal any keywords for MOVE, TURN, PEN DOWN... However, those most assuredly are keywords for LOGO! :)
Personally, I grew up using the Atari family of computers... in some ways I miss the simplicity of the 8-bit days. However, I do not miss 1 mHz processors or floppy drives... or cassette tapes! ;)
