Write simple games in BASIC with awesome graphics!
Flashback BASIC features display lists like Atari BASIC and a blitter chip like the Amiga to reposition moving objects as you pan the camera(s) around.
Because the blitter is entirely in software, no modern chips are required as with DPC+ games.
Here is a demo and a few games to illustrate some of the things you can do in Flashback BASIC:

Get started today - the full source code to Defender III, Defender III Trainer, WarpDrive and the Display List demo are all included! The listings are all pure BASIC - no Assembly required.
Download the zip and checkout the quickstart guide and the manual; the Flashback BASIC compiler uses the powershell IDE already installed on Windows. Alternately, you can use any text editor and the command line if you're running Linux.
Hope Atari fans enjoy creating games in Atari Flashback BASIC!!!
Also there is a BASIC contest ending April 15, 2017 open to Atari Flashback BASIC games!
Atari Flashback BASIC is cross compatible with Virtual World BASIC for the SuperCharger and the ROM's are compatible with all Atari consoles.
Edit: Added a missing file and another BASIC demo, Tron Light Cycles.
