Hello, everyone.

 

I've been tinkering with this for a few days. I'm using Batari Basic and Visual Bb. I considered going with straight-up assembly, but I figured for my first attempt, I'd keep it as simple as possible.

 

I'll go ahead and post this here. It's just the basis of the first level.

 

There's no collision logic yet. And no scoring or dying. And the sharks need to be prettied up and made more aggressive. But it shows what I'm going for.

 

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear it. I'm a total newb and a hack at this stuff.

 

Thank you!

Dear Moderator,

 

I have reposted this in the Batari Basic forum, which I think is the better place for it, since that's the method I'm using. Please delete this post in the Programming for Newbies forum at your convenience.

 

Thanks.

 

:)

Update to my original post: I added the *.bin file in case anyone should choose to try it.

 

Thanks.
