Mr SQL Posted March 3, 2018 Report Share Posted March 3, 2018 The classic home computer BASIC programming contest is accepting entries for the Atari 2600 again this year! Eligible categories are 10 lines of 120 characters and 10 lines of 256 characters. Atari Flashback BASIC and SuperCharger BASIC both support an old-school mode where you can write classic BASIC programs, hope some retro gamers are inspired to write a BASIC 10 line game! There's more info and an example of my entry last year into the 10x80 category (that category has stricter entrance guidelines this year that exclude the VCS) along with the Flashback BASIC manual and download link. The contest deadline is in 3 weeks! BASIC is cool because of the amazing things that can be done in just 10 lines of code; check out some of the some of the amazing 10 line BASIC games from last year: http://gkanold.wixsite.com/homeputerium/games-list-2017 Justin and RickR 2 Quote ATARI FLASHBACK BASIC! Make games for the AFP with awesome graphics, animation and a built in tracker/sequencer! Compatible with all Atari consoles! The IDE is already installed on your PC! Atari Flashback BASIC is cross compatible with the SuperCharger too! AFB games can be recompiled with no changes using the SuperCharger BASIC compiler, available at Relationalframework.com/vwBASIC Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
