SyntaxBomb - Code a game competition
« on: 03. November 2017, 21:33:19 »
Here is another forum for indie and retro game coders - its called 'SyntaxBomb'

They are running a 'Code a game competition'.

Too late for entries now but I thought the site and the games might be of interest to people here...and there is always next year  :)

Looks like most entries are coded in different flavours of Blitz BASIC but one of the entries is coded in BBC BASIC for Windows 'Forces of Darkness' by David Williams a.k.a BasicBoy

Here is a YouTube video of the game in action:

David Williams is also the author of the games found on the site mentioned in this older thread:

Interesting post here from Richard Russell.

He has converted David Williams' game to run in BBCSDL (Richard's cross-platform version of BBC BASIC)

The latest (free) version of BBCSDL can be downloaded from here:
