  1. Just had to say. I got Gosub and think the octopus sprite is awesome...makes me thing you should do an underwater version of robotron ...scubatron 🙂 using different colors of the octupus and others. Gosub is a great game!

  8. Trouble is when we were all kids there were few distractions so if you were lucky to get a computer it was the center of your attention. How can you get a kid interested in building a game that moves a sprite around when they have VR on the PS4 for example....but there is a way. The hit game Celeste for example was not created by a huge team. https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/celeste-switch/ The game was developed over a weekend at a hackathon and using a virtual console with a built in programming language called Pico-8 The built in language is Lua which is kinda like basic or at least as easy to learn The cool thing is you can load in games from the internet including the early version of Celeste then hit the escape key and wow you are now looking at the games source code. The fun does not end there....instead of coding a new game why not hack celeste...have your kid work out how to change her color...how to change how high she can jump etc. Very quickly your kid can see results which may hit the spark to think wow if I can modify this game can i learn enough to create my own... Check it out at https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php It is fun because you can get results quickly. There is a similar thing called smilebasic on Nintendo DS and Switch - https://nintendosoup.com/puchikon4-smilebasic-updated-on-switch/ I honestly think Pico-8 could be used to test game concepts prior to coding them up on Batari basic for example.
  9. Thank you. Just like the 10 line idea, different language but fun to try same thing in Forth...can you write something fun in 10 lines of say 80 chars. Nothing like limited resources to get you thinking more
  10. Can I ask how many chars can a single line of TI Basic, xb etc contain
  11. I would also like to see rapper on the 7800 anbx saw this article http://www.kmjn.org/notes/tapper_videogame_patent.html
  12. Transaction was perfect Joystick was awesome Robotron experience with twin sticks....wow.... you will not regret the purchase
  13. Whoa what!!! After just getting to level 4 you turn it into a speedrun!!! You are just cruel Rasmus...just cruel!!!
