What do you guys think are some of the best games made in the last few years that were done in 100% (or nearly 100%) BASIC?  Any version of BASIC for the TI.  Compiled BASIC OK.

 

By "best games" I mean the ones you enjoy playing the most and/or show off impressive features.

For TI Basic, 'Escape' was a heck of a lot of fun for me.

 

For TI Extended Basic, Opry99er/Owen's game 'Werewolves & Wanderers' is one of my faves.

Good topic.  I really enjoyed Death Drones in TI BASIC.

 

Edit:  Oops!  I missed the part about the game being programmed recently so mine doesn't count.  :sad:

Any of Vorticon's strategy games are worth a mention, here.  Programmed in Extended BASIC; the man has a gift.

Hmmm.  I cannot find where to edit my original message.

 

Anyway, maybe the "Modern" restriction was unnecessary.  If you know of older games written in BASIC that are fund to play and/or show off great technical abilities, then they are welcome too.  :-D

check out the 'TI Game Shelf', maintained by @Vorticon- there's tons of good stuff on there.
